WARNING! TESTING GROUND FOR EXTREME SPORTS!
5 beaches, 5 seaside resorts, and just as many watersports centres! Dunkerque Flandre Côte d’Opale is a paradise for watersports. From Gravelines to Bray-Dunes, there is a 20-kilometre-long, uninterrupted stretch of beach awaiting you!
You'll find two ideal kitesurfing spots here: the Petit-Fort-Philippe beach in Gravelines, and the Dunes de Flandre site in Dunkirk. The latter boasts the only kitepark in France, with a watersports-only zone that allows you to sail in complete safety. Petit-Fort-Philippe is great for beginners because, at high tide on spring tides, a "miniature sea" is formed, where you can practise in very shallow water and complete safety.
If you love watersports, then you've definitely come to the right place! Kitesurfing apart, there's plenty more on offer in Dunkerque Flandre Côte d'Opale, whatever your level: windsurfing, sailing, catamaran sailing, stand up paddle, etc.
So stop dilly-dallying, get your wetsuit on and come on over!
