Where is the Opal Coast ?

The Opal Coast or Côte d'Opale in French, just across the French-Belgian border, is located in Northern France and extends across the French North sea coast with its 120-kilometre beach, dunes, cliffs and charming villages such as Bray-Dunes, Hardelot and Platier d’Oye. It is part of the Hauts-de-France region.

Enjoy the peace and quiet, the beaches, the natural beauty and the famous French gastronomy with unique fish dishes and fresh sea food. Relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. 

Weather in Northern France

The coastal cities have a clear oceanic climate. Thermal amplitudes are low, winters are mild and summers rather cool, except during heat waves. The days of frost and snow are few, so it is not necessary to bring your pair of skis!

Prevailing winds from the south-west and west bring relatively clean air and push the clouds towards the coast. Moving away from the coasts, the climate becomes more continental, with less wind and greater temperature variations.

Best beaches in Northern France

Northern France is full of beautiful long sandy beaches, perfect for walking and sunbathing (weather permitting!).

Best sport activites in Northern France

The sport that cannot be ignored on the Opal Coast is without a doubt sand yachting. Thanks to our large sandy beaches and the omnipresence of wind, the practice of sand yachting is particularly appreciated.

Other nautical activities such as kite surfing, paddle, windsurfing and surfing are also possible in Northern France.

Horse lovers will be pleased to visit one of the equestrian centres where it is possible to ride along the Cap Blanc Nez and Equihen Plage in particular.

Things to do in Northern France

When we talk about the Opal Coast, we think of the sea, wide natural spaces, stretches of fine sandy beaches, seagulls and fish, holidays... But the "Côte d'Opale" is much more than that...

This coast in Northern France is the image of the Region Hauts-de-France, a friendly land where the gastronomy warms the hearts and engages the exchanges, nothing like a fried mussel and a good beer to start a stay under the sign of conviviality, where walks along the beach can take your eyes full. The view from the cabins in its seaside resorts, the walks in the dunes or along the Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez site and the changing sky allow dozens of souvenir photos, not to mention the great events taking place there: the kite festival, the enduropale of Le Touquet Paris-Plage, the sea festival in Boulogne-Sur-Mer...
Each season has its own charm, the Opal Coast is not only a place to decompress in summer... The magic of the Cote d Opale also happens in winter! To find yourself facing the natural elements, the invigorating wind perfect for sand yachting, the freshness on your face, the children running on the beach in their boots and then always this ritual... The convivial refuge at the restaurant where the welsh is the perfect accompaniment to your local beverage!

Evancy is looking forward to welcoming you in our holidays parks in Northern France !
