Wissant

Map on/off

Wissant is a small town on the English Channel whose stretch of beach is popular with windsurfers and kitesailers from all over France. Nearby are the vertical white cliffs of Cap Blanc Nez. (1996,2007)

The north French farmland ends abruptly at the cliff of Cap Blanc Nez. Walking on the stone flake beach along the base of Cap Blanc Nez. Inside the small village of Wissant including its church and town square. The area is quite a popular windsurfing site. My friend's family owns a cabin on the beach and as seen here he is often to be found out sailing on the water.
