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.

Absolutely lovely little place with blue flag beach. Kids loved playing on the waves, great for surfing too. We didn’t stay into the evening but looked like lots of fab places to eat/drink.

Wissant is a town with a fabulous beach. Miles and miles of sand. The town itself can be a bit of a ghost town out of season, presumably there are a number of holiday homes. There has been a lot of work to improve the...More
