Choose Calais, seaside resort of the 21st century
Calais is increasing its initiatives to consolidate its attractiveness and status as a seaside resort. The city can therefore draw on a number of assets: beautiful landscapes, preserved natural areas, fine sandy beaches and historical heritage. The redevelopment of «Calais LA Plage» is based on three federative levers. The playful dimension for an intergenerational appropriation of the place, sport historically linked to beach life, and finally culture with the permanent urban theatre of our machinists..
Calais la Plage unrolls its boards on the seafront with a host of activities! Walkers find themselves there between the dike along the beach, the jetty advancing into the sea or the Perré Risban along the entrance to the port, but also the brand new belvedere. Rest areas are also planned, including a large solarium. For families and children, playgrounds are also available, not to mention sports: fitness equipment, workout area, city stadium... Calais LA Plage also hosts the largest skate park in Hauts-de-France (4000 m2)
