Super beach
Jan 2020
A nice town with a superb beach. The wind makes it a great location for sailing and sand sailing. Very handy for the ferries and if on a booze cruise, good place for a meal before returning.

Beautiful beach
Feb 2020
We visited in February and we were delighted to see horses and riders cantering down the beach...looked like a TV commercial with such a lovely backdrop of the rolling waves on the sea.

Thomas Becket left for England from this beach to face his assassination 4 weeks later.

All the things said about this little town ( almost just a big village) are true and yet a poinient point often missed is its association with Thomas Becket ( 2020 is 850 years since his death with the British Museum exhibition in October) where he sailed from to return to England, to die 28 days later.....

Stunning view
Nov 2019 • Couples
It was a cold, wet blustery day at beginning of November when we stopped here for the afternoon. It’s a lovely walk along the promenade with a few bars and a great view across to England. Lots of windsurfer and people walking along the beach. Would be a lovely place to visit in summer.

Wonderful beach and village
Aug 2019 • Couples
This is a really lovely seaside village not far from Calais. This section of coastline tends to be ignored as Brits rush either from or to the ferry or Tunnel. Huge expanse of beach and wide promenade. We stayed overnight at the Camping Car Aire before a ferry the next day. There was an evening Market in the village Square which added to the ambience. Had an evening walk along the promenade with amazing sunset views. Would definitely recommend.

Very quiet out of season - September
Sep 2019
We loved the charming little village in the summer as it was lively with cafes and restaurants. However the place more or less shuts down in September. A few hotels stay open but a lot of restaurants are closed on Monday and Tuesdays.

Submarine Hunt
Jan 2019
We visited in January to see the submarine which was visible for the first time in years due to the sand banks shifting, It is quite beautiful and both the village and beach are definitely worth a visit.

Wonderful warmth in the people of Wissant
Jul 2019 • Solo
Recently I swam ashore on and English Channel solo swim and landed at Wissant
It was a warm sunny day and the rock wall was full of swimmers
The beautiful cheer and clapping as I swim ashore was heartwarming and that told me all I needed to know about the people of Wissant, can’t wait to visit again for a longer stay
Merci Wissant for your warmth of spirit
