Merlimont Plage



The town of Merlimont Plage is a seaside town in Northern France located in the Pas-de-Calais region, just off the English Channel. It is well known for its beautiful sandy beaches and stunning coastline, which has attracted visitors from all over the world since the 19th century. It is 5 miles from the popular seaside resort of Le Touquet.It is a simular distance to the town of Berck sur mer on the D940

We visited the town just before the start of the Summer holidays.It was also mid week and about to rain so the seafront area where I took my photos was deserted. Plus it was about 12.30 pm I still can not get use to most thing shutting down between 12 and 2 everyday. We had no problem parking so we had a walk along the sea front and a couple of streets off.Before it started to rain quite hard so it was back to the car.We headed off to a place that is open the Mcdonalds at Etaples.The fishing port is a 10 minute drive away.
