Côte Fleurie (French pronunciation: [kot flœ.ʁi]) is part of the Lower Normandy coast on the English Channel in the North of the Pays d'Auge, it constitutes the Eastern coast of the department Calvados.
The name is a reference to the green and flowered countryside of the country lying beyond the coastal hills and to the numerous resorts along the coast. From East to West, these are:
- La Home-Varaville
The coast between the towns of Trouville and Honfleur, although part of the Côte Fleurie, is named Côte de Grace. Dives-sur-Mer is on the Côte Fleurie but possesses no beach or seafront. It is the Brigade Piron that liberated the Côte Fleurie in September 1944.
