  • On France's Côte d'Opale
  • Near the family-friendly seaside resort of Merlimont-Plage

Between a French village and the sea, and set on the Opal Coast of northern France – what un bon locale for Camping Les Jardins de la Mer.

    The pool was excellent. Overall the campsite felt clean.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets - I never saw them cleaned and they did not provide toilet roll so you have to take your own over every time.
    The facilities except for the pool were all closed, even though it was leading up to, and over the bank holiday weekend, that we went. I would have expected them to be open. The sandy pitches meant we kept having to sweep our tent out and the pitches were too close together with barely room for a tent and a car and very close to neighbours. There were barely any staff around.

From the manager...

Hello
We thank you for your feedback that helps us to improve.
Toilets and showers are cleaned twice a day, but some customers are not really respectful of this hard work.
You came at the end of august, that is consider -due to low affluence- as low season, this why you paid low season's prices ;) Nevertheless, theswimming pool was opened until this end of august.
Best regards

    Swimming pool fab

    Disliked: 

    No entertainment, no bar.....advertised as open July and August but was closed early so nothing available

    Toilet block...terrible! Not clean at all, had to clean with spray prior to using as excrement on floor, walls and seat! Yuk and umfortumately my son was quite unwell

From the manager...

Hello,
Although your comment is very harsh, we thank you for your review.
Indeed, in this period (end of august), and because of low affluence, we consider it in low season. This is also why you paid the low season prices! Nevertheless, swimming pool was opened until the end of august.
Toilets and showers are cleaned twice a day, but customers are not as respectful of this hard work. We are disappointed you explain it on the internet instead of telling us at your departure.
Best regards

Local attractions

Camping Les Jardins de la Mer is about a kilometre and a half from the nearest beach and it's a short drive to more of the same at Le Touquet Paris Plage and Berck-sur-Mer. More of the same? The Côte d'Opale has around 120 kilometres of glittering sands, dunes, beaches and cliffs.

Back at base, make for the Bagatelle theme park and aqua park of local seaside resort Merlimont if you're around with the kids; another waterpark, Aqualud, is at Le Touquet-Paris-Plage.

You could also have a look at the National Maritime Museum at Berck-sur-Mer, wander around the fishing port of Etaples, or get active in the area with cycling, hiking, kitesurfing, paddleboarding, fishing, golfing and more.
