On the west coast of the peninsula are the ports of Port
Bail and Carteret with many views to attract the artist.
Cotentin peninsula has long, sandy beaches, mostly devoid
of modern development. The area has a balance between
marine life and agriculture, with many visually appealing
villages, towns, and landscapes.
The green and low-lying
landscape to the south forms the Parc Régional des
Marais du Cotentin.

coastal town of Port Bail.
