Utah Beach has a friendly setting and is also suitable for family outings. During walks along the beach, you can observe coastal bird species such as Ruddy Turnstone, Eurasian Oystercatcher or even Great Black-backed Gull. Utah Beach is located on the migration route of birds. In winter, for example, you can more easily observe flights of Brent Goose flying along the coast.


Français: Plage avec un public dense au mois d'été mais calme en hiver. C'est une zone de sable sec et humide avec un accès au dunes de part la plage. Le cadre est sympathique, propice également aux balades familiales. Durant ces balades, on peux observer quelques espèces cotières comme les tournepierre à collier, les huitriers pies ou encore les goéland marin. Il s'agit d'un axe de migration pour les oiseaux, en hiver, on peux plus facilement observer des vols de Bernaches cravant survolé les côtes.
