The Cotentin Peninsula 2018


Nicknamed ‘Little Ireland' by its inhabitants, the Contentin Peninsula contains an extraordinary range of landscapes which are highly inviting to walkers. Around the bays, among the dunes and through the granite-built villages, you pass along coasts that run very close to the Channel Islands, before reaching the northern tip of the peninsula, which is carved into rugged shapes by the incessant attacks of the waves. Here, at this furthest limit of Normandy, you can immerse yourself in a wild and unspoiled natural environment.
