Our opinion on the Main Beach

Adresse of the Main Beach : Bd de la Liberté 62164 Ambleteuse

The main beach in Ambleteuse is located south of the resort in Fort Vauban (also wrongly nicknamed old Fort Mahon). This beach has a first aid station in summer and is covered in gravels at high tide and sand at low tide. The area closest to the fort is the most popular. The beach is non-existent along the dike at high tide. At low tide, one can reach the beach from the dunes of the Slack, which offer a wilder, less urban environment.

It is possible to park in rue du Fort. The beach is fifty meters away. The beach is not equipped for disabled people but a ramp leads to it quite easily with help.
