Located in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Dunkirk is a seaside resort that holds a place in history and is deeply linked to the North Sea. The shore is referred to as Malo les Bains.
Despite its geographic location, the city is famous for its coast and more precisely, Malo les Bains which is located in Dunkirk (Dunkerque) like Rosendael, the hamlet of roses where we can find pretty traditional houses. Malo les Bains is nicknamed the queen of the Nord beaches. Along the promenade we can admire superb villas that testify to the time when the beach was frequented by wealthy tourists. On the beach, we can still rend authentic beach cabins and participate in the different activities that are proposed. Walks along the dam are among things that you shouldn't skip if only to admire the view, take the time to discover the local gastronomy in one of the many restaurants, or simply have an ice cream.
The beaches of Dunkirk and Malo les Bains stretch over several kilometers. We find five first-aid stations (Marsouin near the dam, near the casino, avenue de la Mer, Pavois to the south of Parc du Ven and Terminus at the edge of the Leffrinckouke beaches). Very familial, the different beaches are bordered by a pedestrian promenade. Near the Parc du Vent, we find an area to practice water sports, especially kitesurfing. Nearby we find the beaches of Bray-Dunes which border Belgium. Calais Beach is not far, nor is Cape Blanc Nez which protects a very nice beach in Escalles in a totally preserved atmosphere. This is the occasion to discver the beaches of Pas de Calais.
For those who will experience the charms of the city outside of summer, the carnival of Dunkirk is not to miss. Between January and April, many festivities are organized in the entire city and a grand ball brings together thousands of participants each year.
