Our opinion on the Hougue Beach

Adresse of the Hougue Beach : Rte de la Hougue 50550 Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue

La Hougue Beach in Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue is located southeast of the port. It is close to the Fort de la Hougue and the Vauban tower, 10 minutes’ walk from the city centre. The water is shallow; it is ideal for children. There is also a playground for children, tennis courts, toilets and green spaces. It is possible to eat at the snack bar of the "Houguette".

Well over a kilometre long, there are several accesses along the route of the Hougue (road to Vauban Tower). This is, in our opinion, one of the nicest beaches of the area. However, at low tide, the sea withdraws a long way.

You can park along the roadside of the Hougue (for free).
