We got off the Dover-Calais ferry and decided to take a walk before continuing our drive. The beach is fabulous, and at the end away from the ferry port I would happily spend a day sunbathing and swimming; however, the portion closest to the pier is much too close to the ferries and I would be dubious about swimming the...

Excellent beach. Water is safe and clean despite being so close to the ferry terminal. Great views to England and during the summer months you might even have the chance to see a Channel Swimmer arrive.
