Where do we start? Le Touquet has it all, the beaches, the nature walks, every sport under the sun, superb shopping, great food… and the best people watching on France’s stunning Côte d’Opale.
Where else could we start? Le Touquet beach has a retro feel, like a small old-fashioned seaside town, with white wide sands and shimmering tides. Don’t let the placid view fool you, this town has so much to see and do that it’ll be hard to keep up with your Instagram posts.
Unique boutiques, quirky crafts and cafés go hand in hand with the relaxed-chic vibe of Le Touquet. Everywhere you turn there is a perfect spot to take a civilised break and people-watch, like the Abaca florist-tea shop combo where locals wait for their flower arrangement to be put together while they sip a mug of custom-made herbal tisane.
There are two 18-hole courses and a 9-hole course in the renowned, and newly revamped, Golf Le Touquet, with wonderful vistas as far as the eye can see, and a fabulous club house with an incredible bar and restaurant.
In the fast-living period between the two wars, Le Touquet was the mecca of the chic and famous, evidenced by the hotels and spas, like the iconic Westminster, that were set up to host their guests’ escapades in style. No wonder it is known as the ‘most elegant beach resort in France‘.

Broad sandy beaches are a characteristic of almost every resort on the beautiful Côte d’Opale, but in Le Touquet what is even more special is that both ends of the popular beach taper away into natural wild dunes that create a gorgeous photography backdrop.
Le Touquet is a paradise for sports lovers with lots of choices of activites. One of the absolute top favorites is a one-and-a-half-hour ride on a horse along the forest, dunes and beach, in a group or solo, available for all levels of horsemanship from beginner to expert.
Solo, in a group or racing in a regatta, the beach is perfect for land sailing char à voile and the photo ops go from the thrilling to the hilarious.
There is a thriving restaurant scene in Le Touquet for every taste and preference, but as for visual impact few can compete with the seafood platter at Pérard’s. It is not only mouth-watering, it is presented like an edible work of art.
