Our opinion on the Cran au Poulet Beach

Adresse of the Cran au Poulet Beach : Hameau Haringzelle 62179 Audinghen

Cran au Poulet Beach in Audinghen is one of the secret beaches near Cape Gris Nez.  This pebble beach, fairly easy to access with well-maintained stairs, leads out of the great beaches of Côte d’Opale and end in a protected place away from the crowd. There is no monitoring or tavern here; one comes to enjoy the sea. At low tide, one can even reach Cran aux Oeufs 500 meters north.

To get to this beach from Audresselles, go north by the D940 and follow the directions to the Atlantic Wall museum. There is a free car park nearby. One goes into the woods to Haringzelles (the latter is totally artificial, it was planted by the Germans during World War II to hide bunkers There is nowadays a war museum in a former bunker - Battery Todt).
