Our opinion on the Central Beach

Adresse of the Central Beach : Bd de la Mer 62152 Neufchâtel-Hardelot

Near place Louis Cordonnier (extremity of avenue du Maréchal Foch) we find the main beach in Hardelot. It is the only zone with a lifeguard and a security post open in the summer (lifeguarded zone is 600 meters, nautical sports are not allowed in this area). The beach seems infinite from one side to the other of the first-aid station. It is bordered by a nice pedestrian promenade dam (with a few cafe terraces, 2 km long). Access to this beach is available by stairs or an elevator for the handicapped (near the first-aid station).

To get here, take avenue du Maréchal Foch. Near the church you'll find the first parking lot (others are found along the boulevard de la Mer).
