On the west coast of the peninsula are the ports of Port Bail and Carteret with many views to attract the artist.

The 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.
