Pas-de-Calais travel guide

4.1
Aquariums · Landmarks · Beaches
Situated on the English Channel at the point closest to the English coast, Pas-de-Calais is a region bordering Belgium with small seaside towns, beaches, and resorts. The regional nickname "Bassin Minier," meaning "Miners' Basin," is popular among inhabitants. You can visit the marshlands near St Omer with a guided boat tour, or swim and relax on the 25 mile stretch of white, sandy beaches between Equihen-Plage in the north to Fort Mahon-Plage to the south. This densely populated region serves as a major continental economic and transportation hub with Dover of England a mere 42 km (26 mi) across the Channel. Destroyed in part by both world wars, home to heavy industry, and cold by French standards, this is not a major center of tourism. However, countryside is beautiful, and you will find fine local foods and beers and many historical attractions. War history buffs in particular will find much to see, and the lack of crowds can be a plus if you desire a more peaceful holiday. Unlike many regions, wine is not the most widespread regional drink here--beer is actually more popular. Try "bière de garde," a type of French pale ale. While in a local restaurant or pub, be sure to try escargots, a traditional regional appetizer.
