Le Goéland 1951

Réville

This is one of the 10 best beach bars in France, according to The Guardian!

You’ll find the bar-restaurant in a really special setting: an old bunker right on the beach in the Bay of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue, with a view of Tatihou Island. It may be a long way out, but it’s certainly worth the trip!

Every first Sunday of the month, from April to September, you can treat yourself to brunch at Le Goéland while you enjoy live music or a DJ set.
