Our opinion on the Dike Beach

Adresse of the Dike Beach : Front de Mer 62179 Wissant

Near the beachfront of Wissant, downtown, we find Dike Beach. Bordered by a nice pedestrian promenade, this large sand beach at low tide (the beach disappears at hight tide) is protected by a dam. The area does not have a lifeguard (only the beach to the north east has a lifeguard). A few shops and restaurants can be found around the dam.

The beach is agreeable and there are not too many visitors (people generally go to the North beach which is bordered by dunes). The view is lovely from both sides, with a nice view of Cape Gris Nez to the south.

Parking is quite difficult in the summer in Wissant. We find a parking lot to the north of rue Jacques et Pierre Wissant.

Near downtown Wissant, on the seafront, we find a large promenade on the dam with a beach below. This beach can be visited at low tide (the beach disappears at high tide). Further, we see the dunes of Amont and Cape Blanc Nez.
