Wind and Sea

What's your favourite way to explore the coast? Strolling down the pier, wandering along the quays... taking the helm of a yacht, trying your hand at watersports, rambling through the Dunes de Flandres nature reserve... or simply stretching out on the beach and listening to the sea...

The beaches along the coast are impressively long and wide, especially at low tide. A paradise for watersports and windsports, it's peppered with fantastic kitesurf and windsurf spots, and it's also great for land-sailing. Enjoy the fresh sea air, whatever the weather, walking on the beach or hiking along the coast.

There are 5 seaside resorts along the coast of Dunkerque Flandre Côte d’Opale, boasting 5 beaches, each with its own character: Petit-Fort-Philippe, the 'family' beach; Malo-les-Bains, the 'most beautiful beach in Nord'; Leffrinckoucke, the 'natural' beach; Zuydcoote, the 'wild' beach; and Bray-Dunes, the 'northernmost' beach.

All you have to do is find the one that's best for you...
