Alan Rogers Review

Camping le Point du Jour has a very French flavour and is an ideal location for family holidays as it has direct access to a beautiful sandy beach. It is becoming popular with British visitors who will receive a warm welcome from the owner and staff. There are around 40 pitches bordered by shrubs and hedging, including 30 occupied by mobile homes and chalets (ten for hire). There are some seasonal units, but most are removed for high season. All touring pitches have 10A electricity, including those on the sea-dyke, and 12 also have water and drainage. Fishing is possible from the beach, and small boats may be launched. Kite surfing is popular, and sailing and other watersports are possible further along the beach. Some noise in the evenings has recently been reported.

The site is close to Pegasus Bridge and Caen, whilst Arromanches and the other landing beaches are within easy reach across the Orne estuary. The latter is a protected wetland and a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers. Drive east for fashionable Deauville and picturesque Honfleur or head inland to visit the quaint villages of the Pays d’Auge and stop off at a Calvados distillery. The site has recently been acquired by the Seasonova group.
