I’m Constance and together with my dog Kenya, we would like to share with you our best ideas for walks on the Côte de Nacre.
Reading time 3 minutes – By Constance
This is certainly one of my favourite places in the Cœur de Nacre to walk with my little dog.
The ideal place for a nice walk, I advise you to go at low tide at sunset.
We walked towards the east of Luc-sur-mer between the sea on one side and the remarkable Falaises des Confessionnaux on the other. Kenya loves to play with everything she finds on her way: seaweed, shells.
What intrigues her most are the strange sponges on the beach that are actually whelk eggs.
At 4 kilos (all wet), the playground is huge for her, even though she is always a bit chilly about going in the water and prefers to stay on the beach.
The landscape and the colours of the sky reflected on the ground make this walk idyllic. It is almost like being on an island paradise! Unfortunately, the sun sets quickly, it’s time to go back and groom her, because she needs it…
It’s time for a walk! I take out the leash and I can already see my little Kenya twirling around, she knows very well where we are going! The weather is nice, no fog on the horizon, so it’s off to Plumetot. I really like this place to walk my dog.
As well as being a pretty little village with character, the surrounding countryside is situated on high ground and offers lovely views over our coastline to the Alabaster Coast on a clear day. On my way through the fields, I come across cows, but also hares, and even grey partridges! Keep a close eye on your dog, especially if it is a small hunter like mine…
This walk always refreshes me, so if you are like me, a lover of old stones and you like to enjoy the fresh air in the company of your beloved dog, then this walk is also for you!
Duration: about 1.7km
Time: 40/45 minutes
Starting point: Park in the Town Hall car park and walk up the “Bout Basset” road, on your left, take the chemin du Maréchal. Continue until the 2nd crossroads.
Once there, take the small path down to the left so that the sea is in front of you. You will come to the D222 road, turn left again and go straight on until you reach the church, you have arrived!
