Places to visit Le Touquet

Although it has never reached a global market place “Paris by the sea” has been popular with rich British and French holiday makers since the 1920s. The land was originally developed in 1876 as a hunting resort, where prior to this all that was there was moor land and wild rabbits. In order to make it profitable they tried making the land in to potato plantations and a distillery, but it never grew until they decided to make it a holiday resort.

This began by planting forestry and brining in architects to design the buildings and Casino.
Le Touquet, or Le Touquet Paris Plage to use its full name is now known as a small picturesque coastal town on the northern tip of France, renowned for its luxurious hotels and villas. It’s a great place to go to wind down and relax on the beach, although there are plenty of activities to keep you and your family entertained.

As well as the odd water sport events and two sailing clubs, surrounding the beach in the summer months are lots climbing frames, trampolines and a merry go round for the children. There is also a small indoor and outdoor swimming pool, equipped with a slide. For older children and adults there is a mini and crazy golf course, as well as Tennis courts.

Inland from the beach is the renowned horse racing course, with stables where you can also have riding lessons or ride ponies.
While the kids are enjoying the activities why not take one of the gorgeous walks through the sand dunes and forest areas?

The adults of the family may also want to visit the famous Casinos in the area, which are said to be the basis for the James Bond movie Casino Royale.

As well as the fine cuisine that is a staple throughout of France, Le Touquet boasts a lovely outdoor market place full of fresh produce and fish caught nearby. You can buy it there or visit one of the many fish restaurants to have it professionally prepared. Why not hire a boat and catch your own on a fishing trip? Around the rue St Jean is a stretch of bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as some nice boutiques where you can pick up some great French designer fashion clothes and accessories.

Many people go on a single day visit just to browse the shops and have a meal.
