Calais beach is spacious,sandy and very scenic. You have a selection of beach huts as well. Would be ideal for sunbathing. Wasn’t quite sunbathing weather,but a pleasure to stroll around the beach and admire the fine views.A good stop off point for ice cream.🍦 😀

There are major works changing the seafront which detracts from the appeal of the beach. Hope they finish before the end of the season but does not look hopeful

What a great beach. The beach is very long, wide and clean, perfect for walking along the shoreline. Abundant parking is located close by.
