What to do on the Opal Coast
Between Calais and Berck-sur-Mer, the Opal Coast stretches out its 120km of beaches, dunes and cliffs. The term Opal Coast was coined in 1911 by Edouard Lévêque. This painter, writer, botanist and native of le Touquet gave this coastline its name in tribute to the light that is so singular and ever changing. Nowadays, the coast distinguishes itself with its well-preserved landscapes, its varied architectural heritage and seaside resorts, and its savoir-faire with regards to fishing.
