Carteret’s waterfront bustles with activity: at high tide sailing yachts and motor vessels make their way to and fro from the marina and trawlers unload their catch straight onto the quay at the Gare Maritime. Carteret’s spectacular beaches are safe and sheltered in summer. They have been awarded the European Blue Flag for water that has been warmed by the Gulf Stream. There are miles of un-spoilt coastline and protected dunes.
There are many excellent restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance, including L'Hermitage, the Michelin-starred Marine Hotel which is situated next door, and Le Potiniere that may be found on the beach. Nearby Barneville, that is accessible on foot offers a market, cinema, supermarket and nightclub (Le Kissing!).
