Western passage towards Granville and the Channel Islands



La Hague
After the beaches of Querqueville and Urville, begins la Hague: dunes, cliffs, beaches of fine sand and stones, rocky coasts covered with heather and gorse. La Hague is a treasure trove of wild jewels.
Behind the cliffs of Gréville-Hague, where Boris Vian spent his childhood, you will find the port of Omonville-la-Rogue, and the smallest port of France, Racine Harbour. Against the cape of la Hague, the port of Goury shelters an important and original life-boat station. The majestic Ecalgrain bay appears next. This solitary part of the coast, surrounded by heather moors leads to the nez de Jobourg and its cliffs. In the distance you can see the bay of Vauville and the cliffs of Flamanville.

Port Diélette
In the old days, this small picturesque 17th century port handled the highest tonnage of the Manche due to the transport of granite quarried locally.
Now concentrating on pleasure boating with its 460 berth marina, this is the nearest port of entry to the channel islands of Guernsey and Sark.
