If you enjoy ferry-watching this is a good place to be. Regular Tai Chi classes also take place here and are good to join in and to watch. There are wide open spaces and a long esplanade offering views along the coast. Some of the facilities are a little run down or old fashioned but there is enough variety and... More

It was not hot, it was not cold - just beautiful colors you wanted to catch in a picture. Some ships were leaving the shore for another country, some old couples were walking on the beach. There was nothing special, but I did like it.

Lovely sandy beach, with stones and shells close to the sea. It's a lovely place to sit and watch the boats coming and going from the harbour. Obviously good weather helps to enjoy the day.It is close to the city centre and has plenty of parking

Personally I cant stand Calais town, to many day trips in the past. Even with school etc. The beach however beautiful, how can such a bland town like Calais have such a beautiful beach. If you love sandy beaches this has to rank up there with one of the best. Watch though as it does tend to get packed during... More

When we went to the beach, the wind was blowing fiercely, so that may have put a damper on our experience. Better weather may have made it more enjoyable. The beach is fine. It's clean; the water is pretty enough to look at. The biggest draw, I would think is that you can see the cliffs of Dover across the... More

The Calais beach is very wide spread, clean and spacious. THe water is for a long way shallow so also excellent for smaller children. We loved it!

Nice clean beach, pretty with beach huts and beachside play areas for the kids. We fell upon a vw car rally which was great. Cafés were expensive.

I always forget how lovely the beach is in Calais, it's a shame the area around it is a bit ropey, but early evening the light and the colours were lovely on the beach.
