Our opinion on the Butin Beach

Adresse of the Butin Beach : D513 14600 Honfleur

Butin Beach in Honfleur is the closest beach to the historical downtown area. It is located at the mouth of the Seine near the Ratier dam (dangerous for pedestrians). It is appreciated by families since there are natural pools created at low tide between the beach and the Ratier bank. In the summer there is a first aid station, bathing huts, games for kids, as well as a snack bar. However, the view of Le Havre's harbor area and the Normandy bridge are not very agreeable.

To get here from downtown, follow directions for Naturospace (boulevard Charles V) on highway D513 for 1.5 kilometers. There is a free parking lot on the left near the lighthouse.

Toward Villerville, this sand beach offers a wild side with several natural pools created at low tide. The beach can be dangerous when the tide is coming back up, so be very careful.

Butin beach in Honfleur and view on Le Havre

Looking toward the right, the view is less agreeable as we see the harbor area of Le Havre, the harbor of Rouen and the Normandy bridge. We are at the Rouen channel that accesses the harbor and the liaison between the Seine and the English Channel.
