TOWN, SEA OR COUNTRYSIDE… THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

Breathe in that sea air! A coastal territory, Dunkirk gives you 17 kilometres of fine sandy beach. Easy to access by bike from the town or surrounding countryside thanks to the cycle path network, it’s the perfect place to practice a wide range of water sports and yachting. Plus, it’s a well-known spot for land sailing or kitesurfing.

As soon as the warm weather arrives, the sandy stretches of land make the perfect place for your family picnics and aperitifs with friends.
