Short walk in Ouistreham

A walk to discover the Orne estuary in Ouistreham.

A nice walk along the Orne and the English Channel just near Ouistreham. It is not the most beautiful walk in the world but it is easy and not very long. At the end of the walk you are rewarded with a beautiful panorama on the Orne estuary. There is nothing difficult since you just have to follow the path. It is necessary to pass the houses so that the walk becomes more interesting and the nature becomes wilder.
