What to do in Cabourg – a chic and romantic afternoon

Hi there! If you are willing to chill on a sweet afternoon, calm and full of romance, Cabourg is your destination! Created in the middle of the 19th century, at the east of Caen and near Deauville, Cabourg is one of the most chic seaside resort in Normandy.

What makes Cabourg so special?

Stop and smell this fresh air! You’ll definitely enjoy its invigorating Marcel Proust pedestrian promenade. It runs above the beach and its four kilometers of fine sand. You’ll also feel like you are back at the “Belle Epoque“. Indeed, you’ll feel like you’re back in time with all its typical timbered villas, its stylish casino beside the majestic and famous Grand Hôtel!

You also need to wander on the “Avenue de la mer” which starts at the town hall. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a shopping session. Indeed there are lots of clothes and groceries stores on this avenue, like “Conserverie la belle-iloise” where they sell many fish specialities. The avenue is also a nice place to relax at a café or restaurant, or even like me, eat  a delicious chestnut waffle on the go !
