Things to see and do

Built in the 12th century, the Saint-Valery church reveals modern stained-glass windows and was strongly modified between the 18th and 19th centuries. A beautiful transition between Gothic and Romanesque art, it features Romanesque pillars and arches, as well as a Gothic nave. Inside, one can admire a dozen statues dating from the sixteenth century.

The central beach of Veulettes-sur-Mer is the main attraction of the Norman village. You can learn to fish on foot, admire the beach cabins or the seaside villas of the early 20th century, bathe, or enjoy the sailing school of the town. The promenade is more than a kilometer long and is very popular with locals and visitors. The latter is reserved for pedestrians.

On hiking trails, you can explore the cliffs of the town, such as the Catelier. On the latter stretched a Gallo-Roman oppidum, and it is still possible to see caves called "Tomb of Gargantua". You will not miss the registered site of the Lower Valley of Durdent.

The town also has a casino rich in slot machines, table games and other entertainment of all kinds.
