History

After his release from Reading prison, Oscar Wilde came to stay at Berneval in June 1897. André Gide met him at the Hotel de la Plage (destroyed during the Second World War). Here, Wilde wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
In the 1960s, a large part of Walerian Borowczyk’s film, Immoral Tales, was set in Berneval’s Grand Hotel, on the Avenue du Capitain Porthéous .
On the night of 19 August 1942, the beach at Berneval was one of the landing locations of the Anglo-Canadian raid on Dieppe. No. 3 Commando landed on "Yellow 1", the beach of Petit Berneval, but got stuck at the top of the cliffs, unable to fulfil their mission. Most were killed or captured, only one managed to escape by swimming back to the boats. Those who landed on "Yellow 2", at the Fond de Belleville, crossed the fields and attacked the gun emplacements, preventing the German gunners aiming at the beaches of Dieppe where the bulk of the landings took place . They all were able to escape by the same route and return to Newhaven.
