Location and orientation
When we talk about holidays in Pas-de-Calais, we usually mean the region between Calais in the north and Boulogne-sur-Mer in the south, which extends along the Opal coast. At the narrowest point of the English Channel, Cap Gris-Nez, the distance to England's chalk cliffs is just 33 kilometres - and in good weather you can even see the cliffs!
Calais loves the Christmas season! In mid-December, the festive lighting is switched on, there are numerous Christmas markets, a competition for the most beautiful Christmas decorations in the shop windows and much more.
Top 3 travel tips
Between Calais and Boulogne-sur-Mer lies the Cap Gris-Nez, or "Cape Grey Nose". This headland on the Opal Coast offers one of the most beautiful and best views of the chalk cliffs from opposite Dover. And this is also the opinion of the coast guard, because the 50-metre-high lighthouse monitors the entire shipping traffic on the Strait of Dover. Nearby there is also the Todt battery, a German gun emplacement from the 2nd World War.2. Relaxing at the Opal Coast
Swimming or walking along the beach in good weather, discovering small fishing villages and feasting on fresh fish and delicious wine in romantic restaurants - the Opal Coast, which stretches from Dunkirk to the mouth of the river Somme, attracts visitors with its beautiful sandy beaches, which are guaranteed not to be overcrowded. Here you will certainly find a great vacation rental if you want to spend your holidays outside Calais and Boulogne-Sur-Mer.3. A visit to Le Touquet-Paris-Plage
"The pearl of the Opal Coast" - this is the nickname of the seaside resort Le-Touquet-Paris-Plage, which lies about 40 kilometres south of Boulogne-sur-Mer. In addition to the 12 km long and even at high tide still wide sandy beach you will find a casino, a wide selection of gastronomy and not only one, but several golf courses.
