The Petit Train De Calais took us here as part of its 45 minute tour around the city. Like most people we've only ever gone in and out of Calais by boat and never imagined any beach here would be worth a look but in fact it is a great beach. Sandy, wide and very busy. Lots to do with... 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.

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.
