Our opinion on the Hippodrome Beach

Adresse of the Hippodrome Beach : Impasse des Dunes 50290 Bréville-sur-Mer

North of Donville, on the edge of Breville sur Mer, opposite the racecourse, there is the most untamed beach of Donville. Bordered by dunes, the beach is ideal for lovers of peace and quiet (although there is a campsite nearby). Going further north, the beach is deserted (no car access). However, there are mussels beds in the area which is disturbing for swimming.it is more of a beach to enjoy the sun or to walk along the waterfront.

To go to this beach, join the Donville waterfront and follow the direction of the thalassotherapy centre and then take the road for the racecourse (you can also follow the Oasis campsite signs). Go past the campsite, there is a small car park opposite the racecourse.
