Our opinion on the Slack Dune Beach

Adresse of the Slack Dune Beach : D940 62930 Wimereux

Slack Dune Beach is between Wimereux (next to the golf course and at Pointe aux Oies) and Ambleteuse (at the mouth of the Slack). Slack dunes border this vast sand and pebble beach on the edge (it is a protected natural site, one cannot get off the beaten track, the dunes are protected). It is totally wild and swimming is not monitored. It is also a very famous kite surfing spot in the north of France.

There are two areas. The one in Ambleteuse is accessible through the D940 towards Wimereux. There is a trail on the right after the bridge over the Slack with a free car park. Access to the beach is a bit long (about 1 km on foot) but the scenery is magnificent; it is an opportunity to enjoy a nice family walk.

The second access is close to Pointe des Oies in Wimereux. From the city center of Wimereux, take the D940 towards Ambleteuse. At the golf, there is a first car park at Pointe des Oies and a second one 600 meters away on the left (the beach is easily accessible from this one via stairs (200 meters on foot).
