The Natural Park of the Bay of Canche, located at the northern end of Touquet, is a magnificent place which extends over an area of over 42 hectares where the smell is of sea breeze mixed with the trees. From here there is a magnificent view of the bay and surrounding Canche. There are three routes that are marked for you to hike: green, with 3200 meters of track, blue, with 2100 meters, and yellow, which is 1900 meters. With each route, you can discover the nature around you and admire the beautiful surroundings. The ride dunes and pine trees will lead you to the mouth of Canche, whose flora and fauna are well worth a stop. The landscape is perfect for photography enthusiasts. There is also a special tour for people with disabilities, allowing them to walk through the pine woods to get to the bay. Those that take the route for disabled people can enjoy a wonderful view and admire the migratory birds that live here.
Le Touquet Paris Plage is a town in northern France an hour from England and Belgium. It's mainly a place for summer holidays for people from Paris. Great beaches, restaurants and bars. Outstanding fish market located in the middle of the village and its library of a strange architectural style. Very nice and quiet for a few days.
Opened in 1932, the museum was initially installed Touquet at city hall and then into the heart of the forest, in a building dating from 1930, the Villa Way Side (built in 1925 by architect Henry Leon Bloch). The museum features more than 800 works comprising paintings, photographs and sculptures. The collection is a great mix of both modern and contemporary works. Most of the paintings date from the late nineteenth century and decorate the walls of the ground floor. On the first floor there is a magnificent collection of hundreds of photos on the walls, all signed by Edward Champion (former deputy mayor and first curator of the museum). You can enter the museum for free to see temporary exhibitions on the first Sunday of every month. Although the museum is open all year, be sure to note that it is closed every Tuesday and also on holidays.
Located not far from Canche, between the airport and the city center, you'll find the equestrian center Bouquet, which is open all year. Built in 1971 on more than sixty-five acres, the site consists of two covered riding arenas, two racetracks, and more than two-hundred and thirty individual boxes. Its main activities revolve around the riding school, though it is also a place in which to house horses and ponies.
And we can not forget its racecourse, known worldwide, in which the town of Touquet celebrates numerous horse racing and equestrian tournaments. Its forty-five miles of marked horse tracks offer great opportunities for walking (from one-and-a-half hours to the whole day) among pines, dunes and sandy beaches at both sunrise and sunset. Open all year, there you can begin your riding experience, or improve your style (they offer individual lessons). They also organize open days aimed at the youngest children(from two and a half years old), with small ponies.
Depending on the time of year, the traditional Touquet market is held on Mondays, Thursdays or Saturdays from 8 am to 1 pm. It is in the main square with the arch, near the city center, and is unavoidable when visiting the area. It's possible to distinguish between the outdoor market and the internal market (the covered market). The indoor market was built between 1927 and 1932. Its has a crescent shape and was built with stone vaults which has earned it the rank of historic heritage monument. As it is a meeting and exchange point, it is possible to find a large number of local, regional produce, seafood and fruits and vegetables in season. The outdoor market is in the market square and is under the arch of the clock. It's essentially textiles, shoes and various stalls that give it a very lively atmosphere.
During my stay at Touquet I had the chance to do a small climb for three days with half board at the thalassotherapy center Accor group. Facing the sea, this place is like a return to the origins, between beaches and fine sand. During my stay I discovered the benefits of whirlpool baths, the seaweed wrap and relaxation treatments, the hot stone massage was great! This treatment is to disperse energy through volcanic stones dipped in oil. And to eat, they have refined dishes in their restaurant that provide you with a balanced diet. After a day of care, I went to enjoy the indoor, sea water pool to swim a few laps. So I spent a few moments of true relaxation and wellness that helped me get back to full fitness. Perfect for getting in shape.
After visiting the city and enjoying its many activities, I wanted to take a break for pleasure and comfort. A few days before I had seen a tempting brochure about Nuxe Spa (Nuxe is a leading brand of cosmetics made from natural products), and finally fell for the temptation and decided to book a treatment. The center is located inside the wonderful Westminister Hotel. On my arrival, the intimate and comfortable cabin and the mixture of smells gave me a relaxed feeling.
It was an unforgettable experience, in a magical and relaxing environment in which one is experiences calmness and serenity. Captivated by the place, the next time I have decided to give myself a full weekend to enjoy all their equipment, including their indoor pool, the steam bath, the sauna, and the Jacuzzi. The rooms are also amazing, and form an integral part of the place's offering of comfort and well-being.
Built in 1904, the golf Bouquet is one of the most beautiful and famous on the Opal Coast. There are two 18-hole courses and one 9-hole course which are among the dunes and forest. The course to the sea (18 holes) is among the top 100 in Europe, and inspired by the British influences. I mean, that is by the sea or in the dunes, and has the distinction of being more sandy and windy than usual. The forest course (also 18 holes) is in the heart of a pine forest, offering protection from the wind and letting you breathe in the tranquility. The Manoir course (9 holes) is suitable for beginners or to improve your style through a course designed over the dunes. The place exudes calm and tranquility, to share great moments of leisure and relaxation, regardless of what your golf level.
