Our opinion on the Portel Beach

Adresse of the Portel Beach : Quai du Calvaire 62480 Le Portel

Portel Beach stretches from the city centre to the north (limit of Boulogne Sur Mer). This beautiful 1.5 km sandy beach is very popular for its many activities and daily maintenance throughout the year. The southern part is the most popular with entertainments in summer (there is also a park with games for children - extra charge), a snack and changing cabins. It is also possible to enjoy water activities in summer (paddle rentals, towed buoys...). At low tide, the beach is a playground for sand yachting (possible initiation, reasonable price).

The beach is monitored in summer (July and August) and equipped for disabled people (tiralo and sand mats - access by the sea slope at Calvary dock).

Parking is free with several car parks (however, attendance is very significant in summer).
