Loads going to see and do on the Sunday, even good on the Monday in strong winds. Frite stalls, ice creams for all and best of all FREE CDAR PARKING.

We've only bypassed Calais from ferryport or tunnel in the past but this year circumstances meant we had an overnight stay and a morning in Calais. This gave us an opportunity to visit the town and the beach was the best bit. So much so we made sure we spent some time on the beach again on our last day... More

This is a flat, sandy beach that stretches for a good distance. The beach is in easy reach of snacking places , entertainment for children and amenities. It's a bit wind exposed at times but not a bad place on a calm day.

Ok visit. Large beach. Sand ok. Brown water. Not lavish. Lots of families of a weekend. Ferries coming and going in the near distance.

You have to walk far out to even get water up to you waist. Wonder fool to take a swim or just get wet in. Lovely soft sand. The price at the ice cream truck is low.

If you're stuck for something to do but your not wishing to stray too far from the chunnel before departing for home, a low cost option is taking a short drive to the beaches south of the port entrance. There's a mixture of beach huts and plenty of parking just in front of some white sandy beaches. Nice for a... More

not a bad little beach, a 10/15 minute walk away from the town centre, soft sand not to over crowded and busy. the only downside if it is one is all the passing ferries.
