Petit Futé's opinion on THE LOCKS

Vintage plate 2020

It is here in the port of Ouistreham that the Caen Canal ends in the sea (which, celebrated its 160 years, in 2017). In order to facilitate navigation, locks had to be built. The first was born at the end of the eighteenth century, the second in 1903 and the last in 1963. 225 meters long over 28 meters allows for the passage of 30,000 tons. In 2013, the lateral walls of the west lock, known as baits, were subjected to major works. Thus consolidated, the work essential for port activity allows an increase in the attractiveness of the port of Caen-Ouistreham and gives a little more amplitude to the boaters to pass the airlock (at least one hour thirty according to tides). During opening hours, the show and animation are friendly.

Agréable ballade sur les écluses d'une rive à l'autre pour visiter non loin de là le port de plaisance et ses régâtes de voiliers sur le canal de l'Orne aux beaux jours. Sur la rive côté agglomération le marché aux poissons des pêcheurs locaux vous attend avec ses produits frais. Vous pouvez voir le ferry à quai, son départ et son arrivée. Agréable ballade agrémentée d'un grand parking à proximité.
