The village of Wissant

close to our hotel and restaurant

Wissant is a charming little fishing village nestle between two capes, the Cap Gris and the Cap Blanc. You’ll love its family beach with fine white sand, 12 km of wide, curvy coastline. For sporty types, Wissant is the perfect place for board sports, being one of the most prized places in Europe for windsurfing and kitesurfing. If you love fresh air and open spaces, the footpaths of the Cap Blanc and the Cap Gris Nez will allow you to explore the surroundings of Wissant and the Boulonnais back country.

The village still has an old-world feel, with its fisherman’s houses and villas from the last century giving Wissant a certain feel. It’s also the last dry harbour in use in France, and you’ll be able to buy sea produce directly from the fishermen and women. Close to Wissant, our hotel in the Pas-de-Calais is perfect for a unique break.
