What to do in Barneville-Carteret
and on the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy
Welcome to Barneville-Carteret on the Côte des Isles on the Cotentin Peninsula. Drop your anchor down at the ideally located Hotel Le Cap and head off to explore the region and the nearby Channel islands - the jetty for Jersey and Guernsey is a short distance away.
In a preserved natural setting sheltered by the magnificent rocky cape of Carteret, you’ll be able to appreciate the beauty of the fine sandy beaches, the wild charm of the dunes dotted with beachgrass, plus the fun of nautical sports, hiking, cycling, horse-riding and golf.
Located in the north of the department of Manche, the Cotentin Peninsula offers a marvellous succession of landscape alternating between swamp, meadow, hedgerows, moorland, cliffs and wild coast. Its coastline, which includes such places as Ecalgrain, the Nez de Jobourg, the Cap de Carteret, the Pointe de Barfleur and Veys Bay, will enchant walkers and lovers of the sea alike. A particularly pleasant coastal path will allow you to get the most out of the beauty of the Cotentin Peninsula coast.
When staying at the hotel, you’ll be able to visit the nearby towns of Cherbourg, Barfleur, Coutances, Granville, Saint Lô and Caen, discover the Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Natural Regional Park, Mont Saint-Michel Bay, the D-Day beaches and the Pointe du Hoc, and the Côte Fleurie with the seaside towns of Cabourg, Deauville and Trouville.
