On the edge of the D-Day landing beaches, your Sandaya campsite opens the doors to a spectacular coastline some 120km long. After a good night’s sleep under the canvas of your tent or in a comfortable well-equipped mobile home, savour a real holiday breakfast on the terrace, before diving into the covered and heated swimming pool of the water park.
