Superbe point de vue, sur l'un des points hauts de la côte. Vue très dégagée, superbe promenade. Descendez sur le chemin côtier et dites merci dame nature. Merci dame nature

Natural Feature
“Cap Blanc-Nez (literally "Cape White Nose" in English is a cape on the Côte d'Opale, in the Pas-de-Calais département, in northern France. The cliffs of chalk are very similar to the white cliffs of Dover at the other side of the Channel in England. Cap Blanc-Nez does not protrude into the sea like a typical cape, but is a high point where a chalk ridge has been truncated by the sea, forming a cliff that is topped by the obelisk of the Dover Patrol Monument, commemorating the Dover Patrol which kept the Channel free from U-boats during World War I. Cap Blanc-Nez was a vital measuring point for the eighteenth-century trigonometric survey linking the Paris Observatory with the Royal Greenwich Observatory. Sightings were made across the English Channel to Dover Castle and Fairlight Windmill on the South Downs. This Anglo-French Survey was led in England by General William Roy. A few miles southwest of the 134m high Cap Blanc-Nez is the taller Cap Gris-Nez, the nearest point on mainland Europe to Great Britain. Cap Blanc Nez and Cap Gris Nez are separated by a ten-kilometre stretch of coastline known as the Grand Site des Deux Caps, one of the 41 sites in France (including the Pointe du Raz in Brittany, the marshlands of Poitou or Mont Ventoux in Provence) to have been awarded this prestigious label. Managed according to the principles of sustainable development, Cap Blanc Nez has also been designated a “Natura 2000” special protection area by the European Union. As well as enjoying the sea air and appreciating the flora and fauna, you can also feast your eyes on the Straits of Dover, with Great Britain so close on the other side. The continual procession of ships never ceases to amaze, with the cross-channel ferries and the huge commercial vessels further out to sea. Linking the Atlantic to the great ports of Northern Europe (Rotterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, Dunkirk etc.), this is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. This volume of sea traffic is watched over by the CROSS Gris Nez Marine Nationale (Coastguard) station, the strait’s eyes and ears! Cap Blanc Nez is an hour's drive from De Panne. You definitely shouldn't miss it. Go for a lovely walk on the cliffs with great views! At low tide, you may take an easy trail down to the beach. ”

“Décor atypique où fauteuils, tables et tableaux anciens se mêlent à la décoration moderne. « Les Bains », comme on aime l'appeler ici, c'est la brasserie branchée de Wimereux. Un endroit original à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte !”
