"The pearl of the Opal Coast", "The four seasons resort", "The gardens of the Channel"... There are no shortage of names to highlight Le Touquet's assets. These include the town itself, with the unusual buildings which characterise the touquetois style. This style, Le Touquet's brand, is a legacy from the 1920s, when a few architects competed with imaginative designs to build several thousand villas. In doing so, they livened up the streets of Le Touquet. A certain number of these buildings have now been listed as historic monuments. These include the town hall, the hippodrome, the market, and the Tata Ice villa, with its pink hue and cubist shapes.
At the lighthouse overlooking the Canche estuary, from the height of its 53 meters, you can enjoy an unforgettable view including the fortifications of Montreuil and a section of the Opal Coast, as far as Artois. You can also visit the old lighthouse keeper's cottage, where you can learn more about the region. Or if you prefer nature reserves, you can enjoy breathing the salty sea air out at the Pointe du Touquet (at the end of the Canche estuary), still a wild area, and the 800 hectares of forest at the site.
Le Touquet and the Opal Coast offer delights for all tastes. While staying in our hotel at the heart of the resort, you can enjoy the boutiques, the restaurants, the two casinos, and the café terraces on the seafront. Close by, there is some magnificent countryside, including the Canche bay nature reserve...
