Finding new places to visit and explore is one of my favourite things, and you may already know that if you follow my blog… This installment is up the coast of Manche, the Annoville Dunes.
Annoville Dunes were the first classified dune site in France. The dunes overlook the beach which reveals oyster and mussel beds at low tide. The area, protected since 1995, extends over 11 hectares and erosion prevention actions now allow the development of fauna and flora specific to this type of environment.
Alike to the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, the dunes here have flora that is very specific to the area and therefore protected. Although you can’t see the mount on this beach, on a clear day you can see Jersey!
As far as the beaches go around this area, this beach is laden with shells, seaweed, and interesting beach combing goodies. Unfortunately, the weather turned pretty quickly so I was unable to explore the walks around here at length, but there seem to be many walking trails both on the dunes and beach.
I love looking at the sea during rainy and stormy weather, but not getting stuck in it! Anywho, we are back on lockdown here in France, so for the next month my only excursions are for essential shopping and maybe dog walks. Stay positive guys and I’ll check in soon.
