If you are a nature lover, you will find all sorts of family activities. Enjoy these magical places and treat yourself to a unique stay.

Explore the Grand Site Les Deux-Caps

The emblematic site of the Hauts-de-France region is the jewel of the Opal Coast and is located between Boulogne-sur-Mer and Calais. This protected area is remarkable for the diversity of its landscapes, the variety of natural environments and authentic coastal villages. It constitutes the coastal strip of the Regional Natural Park of Caps et Marais d’Opale. Its location at the gates of the Strait of Dover offers an exceptional view over England.

Meet the seals

While they had almost disappeared from the coasts of northern France at the end of the 1970s, you can now see up to a hundred seals in the Baie d’Authie. They can be spotted 2h30 before low tide, resting on the uncovered sand banks.

Dive INTO THE BIGGEST AQUARIUM IN EUROPE

Get ready to face the immensity of the deep blue sea and experience the new “Journey on the High Seas”: Nausicaá, Europe’s biggest aquarium, invites you to discover one of the planet’s last unchartered territories. Thanks to effective scenography and an immersive experience, you’ll feel like an explorer delving into the mysteries of the high seas.

Sand yacht in Le Touquet

At low tide, the beautiful 7km long sandy beach becomes the ideal place for a few bursts of speed aboard a sand yacht. Hair blowing in the wind, everyone can try their hand at piloting this sand vehicle, which glides under the sheer force of the wind.
