The weather wasn't the best, but it has not been a good August.... We would have been here at least one time in July, but operation stack had gridlocked Kent (and I live near Maidstone), and I hate to think how much money that cost the traders in Folkestone and other Kent seaside towns, let alone Calais. I love the... More

just right for a stroll in the sun, goes on for miles..... walk out to the lighthouse can get a bit breezy but the view of the beach is worth it

This beach is easily accesible from the town of Calais and is very clean, with free (seasonal) public toilets and a camper van service site nearby. There are bars and reastaurants close to the beach and in the summer, it's great fot sunbathing a beach sports. The sea always seems rough however and doesn't look great for a dip!

Nice clean beach, with life guards in attendance. Things for the kids to do and good selection of parks/playgrounds. Lovely ice cream vendors.

Normally we just drive through Calais but the beach is definitely worth a visit. A long expanse of sand with shallow water, ideal for paddling. It's a lovely spot to watch the boats and while away some time, whether you're waiting for a ferry or fancy a quick trip to France, you need go no further!

Very large clean beach with parking and toilets close by. Great for families while waiting for the ferry that is only a few minutes away.

Stunning beach, well worth making the time to stop if you are early for a ferry. Our second visit, free parking is a bonus!
