34 Vintage Photos of People Having Fun on Deauville Beach in France during the Early 20th Century

Deauville is a seaside resort on the Côte Fleurie of France’s Lower Normandy region. An upscale holiday destination since the 1800s, it’s known for its grand casino, golf courses, horse races and American Film Festival. Its wide, sandy beach is backed by Les Planches, a 1920s boardwalk with bathing cabins. The town has chic boutiques, elegant belle epoque villas and half-timbered buildings.

The main attraction, though, was the wide sandy beach, which offered opportunities for sunbathing, donkey rides, aerobics — and roving photographers to capture those moments from the early 20th century.
