“An attractive and clean sandy beach”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We visited Plage de Ouistreham on an August weekend and as the temperatures were high the beach was extremely busy. The beach is clean and there are good facilities, and the Coastguard keeps a close eye on the bathers and provide a reassuring presence.

Plage de Ouistreham is known locally as ‘Riva Bella’ and I can see why, it is very nice indeed.
