The local market
There is a cute and tiny market in the center of Deauville. It is a real traditional market where you can find all products. From fresh foods to jewelry, presented to you in so many colors. After strolling around the Deauville market you can sit down and relax at a restaurant nearby. You can find the market at Place du Marché on Monday, Friday and Saturday morning.
The endless beach of Deauville is pretty and cozy. You can walk around the boulevard to see some locals (and yes, many tourists too) getting a nice tan, while enjoying a class of cider at a beach bar. You can also rent a beach umbrella and get yourself some me-time.
Try your luck at Casino Barrière Deauville. It is just a few steps away from the beach and the building is a real eye catcher. People from all around the area come to Deauville just for the casino. The building also includes a restaurant and bar, and even a theater.
