“Nice hiking possibilities”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We were lucky with the weather, and had a very clear view on the British coast. Unfortunately we couldn't spend the time we wanted to, but if you like hiking in the nature there are very nice possibilities. Mind that there will be lots of other people if you stay on the main trails.

“Wissant Beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Great beach, good for wind surfing and kite flying but not too windy that you cant just sit and relax. Free parking too although suggest getting there early on a Saturday or Sunday as the locals go there and can get busy. If you are into WW2 there are a couple of bunkers too to explore at the back of the beach in the dunes.

“Breathtaking views”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Loved the long beaches and the dunes, which were kilometres of White sand. You can walk to the top and see the obelisk, with 360 degree views.

“going to the cap”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is geography and history combined. The clarity of the descriptions in French and English are good. You get a strong sense of the strategic importance of this site to the occupying Germans in WW1 and WW11. Fascinating.
