Le Touquet prides itself on the fact that it has been able to maintain its small town charm even though it is one of the most popular destinations in northern France. Within easy reach of England and with top class facilities and entertainment, British tourists have been flocking here for over a hundred years and today the resort is also popular with rich Parisians from across Europe throughout the year.
The architecture around the town is testimony to pastimes that have been instrumental in creating this interesting yet unassuming town. The Town Hall is built on the site of the original castle and is adjacent to a magnificent Belfry, which you can climb for a birds eye view across Le Touquet and the surrounding countryside. The Villa?s display the heyday of the roaring twenties and thirties when the town was a playground for the rich and famous, while the Swiss village and the local churches have been the inspiration for many a local artist.
The impressive promenade leads you onto the sand dunes and the miles of golden beaches that are a draw to many visitors. Here you can simply sit back and relax or take part in a number of activities that are available such as windsurfing, sailing or sandyachting. Away from the beach you can enjoy a number of other sports such as golf, tennis and horse-riding all of which provide fantastic facilities in the local area.

Streets are lined with exclusive boutiques and fashion stores, dotted with quaint cafés serving delicious afternoon snacks and if you are lucky enough to visit in fine weather, many have al fresco seating to take advantage of the sunshine.
