The Opal Coast of France is well-known for the unspoilt and particularly stunning natural environment. Between Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez, long sandy beaches can be found at the foot of huge, sheer cliffs. The more daring among you could attempt to climb the cliffs to really get the most out of the exceptional views. You will even catch a glimpse of the English coastline on the horizon!
Those who prefer to keep their feet on solid ground can explore the dunes and try to find lost treasures. The Opal Coast is a land of legends, brimming with windmills, churches and other ruins of ancient times.
Are you looking for entertainment for the whole family? There is a wide range of water sports on offer along the beaches. Sand yachting, kitesurfing, catamaran trips and much more. Experience something new as a family or with friends during your stay on a campsite in the Manche!
Are you more attracted by the cities than being in the wide-open spaces? Boulogne-sur-Mer is a must-see. This fortified town has an exceptional historical heritage, and is also home to the biggest aquarium in Europe, Nausicaá. Stop by Calais to explore the fortifications built by Vauban, before visiting Dunkirk. The famous Mardi Gras carnival here is well-know across Europe!
