Go for a walk on the beach or just park on the side when the weather is cold and eat your sandwiches. A nice little stop.

Calais beach is along the main promenade. One thing I did notice is that it is very clean in that there was no litter left about.It's nice to sit & watch the ferry coming into the port. The beach at weekends can get very full ,not just of tourists but the locals who have a family day out.Some nice little... More

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
