Havre Regnéville‑sur‑Mer

Havre de Regnéville-sur-Mer: the largest of the havens

The largest but perhaps one of the best known, the Havre de Regnéville-sur-Mer is surrounded by the village of Regnéville-sur-Mer and the tip of Agon-Coutainville.

The haven is formed by the mouth of the Sienne and Soulles rivers. It covers more than 1,800 hectares, which makes it the largest of the 8 havens on the west coast of the Manche department. It is also the deepest at 5 kilometres deep.

Formerly a beaching port, Regnéville was a very important trading port. Since the Second World War, it has only been used by pleasure boats.

The haven is an major ornithological interest zone and is classified. The sandy spit which marks the northern edge of the haven (Pointe d’Agon) is susceptible to silting due to the tides bringing in sediments.

The haven is bordered by the Pointe d’Agon and Regnéville, both of which we strongly recommend. Two magnificent places that are a must-see. Perfect for photo shoots or walks against a backdrop of breathtaking scenery.
