Things to do in  Deauville City

Welcome to Deauville City

Golden sands, chic terrace cafés, and an international film festival mean there are plenty of things to do in Deauville, a favorite destination for weekending Parisians. Just two hours from the capital, this elegant Normandy beach resort has been tempting the jet-set since the 1800s, and its timeless charms still hold appeal. The belle époque villas and half-timbered buildings are characteristic of the Côte Fleurie (Flower Coast), but there's no mistaking Deauville's seafront "Les Planches" boardwalk, dotted with colorful parasols and quirky art deco bathing cabins.


All about Deauville City

When to visit

Summer brings vacationers to Deauville, and while the Normandy beach town doesn’t quite have the weather of the south—average highs are around 72°F (22°C)—there are enough sunny days to make the most of its sandy shores. Deauville rolls out the red carpet for its flagship event, the week-long Deauville American Film Festival in September, which always pulls in the crowds.

Getting around

Most visitors arrive by car or train from Paris, but once in Deauville, it’s easy to get around on foot. The small town is compact enough that everything is within strolling distance. If you want to explore further, you can always make like a local and rent a bike. There’s no public transport in Deauville, but you can hop on the passenger ferry to reach neighboring Trouville, and Bus Verts connect with other "Flower Coast" towns.

Traveler tips

A relatively new cultural hub in Deauville, Les Franciscaines opened its door in 2021. Housed in a restored Franciscan convent, it’s a museum, gallery, and cultural venue all rolled into one, where you can discover Deauville’s history, admire the collection of André Hambourg paintings, or check out the latest temporary exhibitions. The annual Planches Contact photography festival, held in fall, is another highlight.
