twin communities of Barneville and Carteret have much to offer
visitors. In addition to the award-winning beaches there are plenty
of glorious walking opportunities around the rocky, lighthouse-topped

harbour is a modern marina popular with sailing enthusiasts, while
on the other are the moorings of the colourful fishing fleet.
These boats arrive laden with baskets containing sea-fresh fish,
lobsters, mussels and oysters that feature on stalls at the bustling
Saturday market, and on menus at the numerous local Normandy restaurants.
