Our opinion on the Ecault Beach

Adresse of the Ecault Beach : Ch de la Warenne 62360 Saint-Étienne-au-Mont

The beach of Ecault on the municipality of Saint Etienne au Mont is part of the secret beaches of the north of France. At the edge of the national forest of Ecault, the preserved dune massif offers a beautiful sandy beach on almost 2.8 kms between Equihen-Plage and Hardelot-Plage. There are cliffs said dead covered with dunes. The site is exceptional and can be the occasion for a nice walk through the different trails (the most interesting is by the path of the Jews where we can see the remains of the Atlantic Wall built by the Germans with the help of Jewish prisoners during the Second World War – departure next to the castle of Hardelot).

Several paths allow to reach the beach. The fastest coming from Equihen by the D119 is to follow the direction of Arena (nvironmental Interpretation Center) by Warenne road. There is a first parking just before the center. Another parking is situated at the end of the road (but parking is limited – however access to the beach in 5 minutes). The bravest can leave from the castle of Hardelot by taking the path of the Jews. We can also easily reach the beach from the parking of Equihen-Beach by going to the south.
