Admire the white cliffs of Dover from the other side! Calais is the perfect spot for people watching on the beach. Chic ports, culture in spades and plenty of family-fun to boot. Come and say bonjour to the beach in this northern part of France.

A city in northern France within the department of Pas-de-Calais, Calais has many stories to tell. It overlooks the Strait of Dover, the narrowest point of the English Channel, and has the main port for transport between France and England. It is visited by more than 10 million people annually and holds many points of interest, owing to both its old and new quarters. It has been part of both England and France, contributing to both economically and strategically.

Once called “the brightest jewel in the English crown”, Calais was key for the trade of tin and lace. It bore the brunt of heavy shelling during the World Wars and many buildings were destroyed. The city has since been rebuilt and the monuments have been salvaged. Economically, Calais still relies on trade although tourism is also important. Situated near the channel tunnel, Kyriad Calais Sud Coquelles hotel - Tunnel sous la manche is the perfect starting point for your holiday.
