Destinations Europe France

Exploring of the Opal Coast

Back in Europe and unable to move too far due to the Corona crisis, my friends and I made a little road trip to the Opal Coast. The Opal Coast stretches from Dunquerke at the Belgium-French border, all the way to Berck in France. We spent time at the English Channel part of the coast and did most of our exploring by car. Obviously we didn’t have time to visit the entire coast, but this post will get you started on the most interesting highlights of my trip there. Are you ready for some exploring of the Opal Coast?

Equihen (plage)

We actually stayed at a campsite in Equihen-Plage, so this is were we spent most of our time. Equihen has beautiful widespreaded beaches. Looking for some action? Make sure to try some surfing at the L’École de Surf du Nord, a surf school, right at the beach. We rented our own boards, but they also offer classes when needed. A bit further north you will find Equihen (Le Portel). This is the town center, where you can find a weekly market on Tuesdays and some local shops. For a great sunset: settle down at the Chateau de Sable beach club!

Boulogne-sur-mer

Boulogne-sur-mer is known as the largest fishing port of France. It has a great historical center, called Ville Fortifiée (fortified city). The original city walls are still up and you can find a beautiful cathedral right inside. Make sure to check out the bar: La Cave de Monsieur Guy, for some great wines, beers and cocktails. Looking for some shopping-time? Even though Boulogne is not a huge shopping city, you may still be able to enjoy yourself at the Rue Victor Hugo and Rue Adolphe Thiers for a while. Got thirsty (and hungry) after shopping? Check out the La Chapelle wine bar. We had a great aperitivo there! Rainy day? Check out the city’s aquarium (Nausicaá). Entrance fees lie around 30 euro’s per person. So not for travellers on a budget!

Wimereux

Our next stop while doing some exploring of the Opal Coast was Wimereux. A cute town for a quick coffee stop. The boulevard is known for it’s nice buildings and small beach houses in blue and white. There is a small shopping street (Rue Cornet) with some great boutique shops.

Audreselles

Moving on, make sure to make another quick stop in Audresselles. A street market is held every Monday and with good weather you can see the White Cliffs of Dover on the other side of the canal. Pretty cool to be honest!

Wissant

We actually didn’t do much when we got to Wissant. We immediately made it to the beach club: La Plage Wissant. Another one for on the list. The beach club has comfy lounges, offers refreshing drinks and has a large barbecue where fresh seafood is being prepared for you right in the moment.
