Only two hours from Paris, London or Brussels, discover the 120 kilometres of fine sandy beaches, sand dunes and cliffs that stretch along the Côte d’Opale from Calais to Berck-sur-Mer.

Along the way stop and see the charming fishing villages like Audresselles or Wissant and the seaside resorts with their Anglo-Norman style villas like Wimereux, Hardelot or Le Touquet Paris-Plage.

On foot or by bicycle, wrapped in a warm pullover or just a swimsuit, discover the variety of landscapes of the Côte d’Opale with its ever changing rainbow coloured skies pushed along by the wind which sometimes blows so hard that it’s hard to catch your breath ! The majestic "Le Grand Site National des Caps", two immense cliffs that overlook the busiest navigation channel in the world. On a clear day you can even catch sight of the British coastline (just 34kms away), as well as the flotilla of "flobarts" (local fishing boats), trawlers, pleasure boats and car ferries, that bob up and down on the sea, under the watchful eye of the look-out post located on top of the "Gris Nez" cliff.
