Our opinion on the Calais Beach

Adresse of the Calais Beach : Digue Gaston Berthe 62100 Calais

Calais Beach is one of the best kept up beaches in the north of France. Bordered by several chalets (about 500, some are sold from time to time for about 1500 to 5000 euros depending on the area and condition, they serve as bathing huts; people come for the day but do not live in the chalets) the sand beach extends toward Sangatte.

The view to the west is very nice with high dunes. However, to the right, we have a direct view of Calais harbor (departure point for England, the incessant dance of ferries could be an eyesore).

The beach has a lifeguard in the summer and is handicap accessible.

Note that dogs are not allowed on this beach during summer (tolerated from October 16 to May 14).

At the edges of the beach we find several play areas for children (adapted for different ages), ping-pong tables, a basketball court, a beach volleyball court and a picnic area.

We also find several free parking lots around the beach.

We are on the dunes of Blériot-Plage. Further, we see the harbor and the dam of Calais and its beach (in the foreground are the chalets in Blériot).

Near the dam of the harbor in Calais, we can see the immensity of this beach which extends as far as the eye can see toward Sangatte. At the end of this beach, high dunes appear.

On the edge of the beach we find several bathing huts. However the atmosphere is very urban with many buildings. To the left, we see a first-aid station.

On the right side, we have a direct view of the Calais harbor. This is a departure point for England. The coming and going of boats could be bothersome.

Chalets on the Calais beach

Looking to the left, the view is becomes more agreeable with the many little chalets on the beach. Further, the Sangatte dunes bring a more natural side.

We find many alleys on the edge of the beach with lines of chalets. They are used as bathing huts.

Boats from Calais

The many boats that make the liaison between Calais and Dover (England) will surely amuse children, but at the end of the day it could become bothersome!

Handicap beach in Calais

This beach is handicap accessible with a ramp near the first-aid station. Access across the beach to the sea is also handicap accessible. Ask the lifeguard for a Tiralo beach wheelchair.
