Adresse of the La Redoute Beach : Bd Kennedy 14810 Merville-Franceville-Plage

La Redoute beach of Merville-Franceville is located west of the seaside resort and extends to the mouth of the Orne. There are three distinct areas.

The first zone is at Kennedy Boulevard. It is the only area where swimming is supervised (July and August) and allowed (direction of the city-center). By going to the left, swimming is no longer monitored and is even banned from the kitesurfing area.

The second zone is reserved for kitesurfing. Be careful, swimming is not allowed.

Then the third zone, after the channel for kitesurfing, with a naturist beach (with very beautiful dunes). Because of the proximity of the mouth of the Orne, swimming is stricly prohibited (strong currents).
