Beaches and life as far as the eye can see

The Côte d’Opale’s 120 km of beaches, dunes and cliffs unfurl between Calais and Berck-sur-Mer.

It’s a landscape full of contrasts, mixing the bright green of its meadows with the blue-grey of the waves: a region which lives from the sea and plays with the wind.

The Côte d’Opale is traditionally both influenced by the sea and rooted in the land, an alliance that, although often violently broken throughout history, has always been repaired, to form a fragile balance between the waves of the Channel and the furrows of the fields.

Calais : City of Lace

From the top of Calais’ lighthouse, you can contemplate the sea that blows you away towards the English Coast.

The fine sandy beach is the perfect setting for a myriad of thrilling activities: fly-kiting, sand yachting, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, but also for a family picnic or a walk between sea and land.
Not far from there, the Burghers of Calais by Auguste Rodin are the guardians of the city hall’s belfry, listed as UNESCO World Heritage site.

The fortified town of Calais is famous for its citadel and suspended fort built up by Vauban.

The IXth century “Bassin du Paradis”, located at the heart of Courgain Maritime district, is also a place to visit which gives a better understanding of the lives of fishermen from past to present. But Calais holds even more surprises… The International City of Lace and Fashion is an outstanding museum where lacemakers and fashion designers savoir-faire is celebrated.

Calais is a fantastic getaway destination and the starting point to your journey through Pas-de-Calais.
