Each year, the city gets in tune with lovers, with numerous events and dedicated decorations. Follow the leader !

The ideal destination for Valentine's Day

Love and Cabourg have long been linked. Is it the romanticism of Belle Époque villas, the beauty of sunsets, stretches of sand or the poetic Grand Hotel who made Cabourg a popular city for lovers? Surely a little of all of this at the same time! 

Still, today, love is everywhere in Cabourg.

As Valentine's Day approaches, the whole city celebrates love. A few days before D-Day, the avenue de la Mer is adorned with pink. More than 1000 heart-shaped balloons adorn the city center. Shopkeepers decorate their shop windows and the Casino Gardens light up, as does the Town Hall, after dark.

Activities full of love for lovers


During the event, goodies are distributed throughout the city and a host of activities are organized. You can share a moment of complicity with your other half during a dance class, an ice skating session or a carriage ride.

The most romantic can post sweet words on the message tree and take pictures in front of the love wall. The more timid can, for their part, declare their love on the city's luminous panel.

On Promenade Marcel Proust, Meridian of Love also famous Cupid, with five columns representing the five continents, exposing sweet words and fiery missives.
