  • Family-friendly site with direct access to Stella-Plage beach/dunes
  • A 15-minute walk to Stella-Plage town and 20 mins' drive to Le Touquet
  • Playground on site; sand yachting, kayaking, surf lessons at the beach
Spend your next hol dawdling in the dunes at Camping de la Mer, a seaside site where the sands of Stella beach in Pas-de-Calais are accessible directly from the grounds. Making a quick dash over from Britain? It’s also within easy reach of ferry ports, with Calais about an hour and 10 minutes’ drive away. Once you’ve arrived, activities to get stuck into are plentiful: this prime park in northern France has partnerships with many a local tour organiser, so you can learn to surf, kayak across the sea or take a walking tour of nearby bays in search of seals. More interested in hanging out with horses? An equestrian centre is a 20-minute drive away to the north in the larger town of Le Touquet, also home to a golf course and waterpark. Heading south instead, make for Parc Bagatelle for rides and rollercoaster to suit the younger enfants in their travel squad; the parkland here is also ace for picnicking. Back on base (with an ice cream in hand from the on-site vendor in high season), check in with Camping de la Mer’s friendly staff to get their top tips on the things to do and sights to see in the local area. For extra info, also chat to the chaps at the tourist information office in Stella-Plage town, a 20-minute walk away past the supermarket.

Liked: Sehr schöne Gegend

Disliked: Für eine Übernachtung ist es Ok aber für Camping auf längere Zeit ist es nichts. Es gibt kein Geschäft noch nicht einmal Baguette oder sonst was zu kaufen. Die Nasszellen werden abends abgeschlossen und erst Morgens geöffnet.

From the manager: Good morning, We thank you for your comments...when you arrived we explained our services to you as well as how to open the showers if you go to the wrong door it makes sense....the toilets are basic, no toilet seats in fact for hygiene no campsite have this kind of equipment.

From the manager: Bonjour, Nous vous remercions de votre commentaire, concernant la fermeture d'accés des barrières des entrés et sorties nous sommes en droit de respecter les nuisances du drive et circulation au sein de l'établissement . Les restaurants dans le centre ville ainsi que les bars de plage étaient ouverts surtout un samedi étant une station balnéaire oui en effet peu être complet vu l'afflux touristique vu le beau temps sur la côte d'opale. Nos toilettes sont propres et les points d'eau sont de l'autre côté du bâtiment, nous vous avons fit l'explication de nos commodités et réglementation des votre arrivée. Cordialement La Direction

Local attractions

If you’re swayed by the idea of learning to sail, do it on the sand instead of sea at a school in Berck 20 minutes’ drive south of the park. Or is the water where you’ll want to be? If so, a place for renting standup paddleboards, pedal boats and jetskis is around 10 minutes away. Have an ocean experience without getting wet at the aquariums of the Maréis - Sea Fishing Discovery Center (20 minutes’ drive), or go to take a look at the thousands of underwater creatures at the Nausicaá National Sea Center 50 minutes away in Boulogne-sur-Mer. Inland and outdoors is Montreuil’s old town (25 minutes) and the Vallée de la Course (35 minutes), for flitting around a pretty landscape dotted with farmhouses, posh mansions and churches. Castles are (of course) around here too – drive half an hour to Château de Recques-sur-Course to mosey around a stately Louis XV-style structure.
