Photos and links to the places we visited on our many trip down this coast From Calais to Boulogne

The Cote dOpale has some of the best beaches in France.

You can walk miles along the cliffs. You can see across to the white cliffs of Dover and the English coast. The area is dotted with small towns and villages.

We liked the fishing village of Wissant where you could park almost on the beach.

Ambleteuse with its castle on the beach and WWll museum was well worth a visit.

Our personal favourite was the little seaside town of Wimereux. With its promenade, shops and restaurants
