General

  • On France's Côte d'Opale near Le Touquet
  • At the entrance of the family seaside resort of Merlimont-Plage
  • Heated pool, fitness room, playground and pétanque court

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

The village, Merlimont-Plage (it even has 'beach' in its name) is a family-friendly seaside resort where you can try land and water activities from sand yachting and kite flying to surfing or dune hiking. And quite a bit occurs on site too, as the team organises entertainment and activities for guests during high season.

Jardins de la Mer also has a heated outdoor pool (open in July and August), table tennis, a pétanque court and a playground. And if you want to keep your energy levels up? Get busy in the fitness room.

    Maybe some more options in the shop, bbq meats would be very handy! As closest village a little while away.

    The site is large and I’m sure it will be lovely in season. We had a nice quiet stay and it’s well situated for getting around. Le Touquet, Breck and Boulogne in easy driving distance.
    It looks like a lot of people have static units that they visit at weekends. All in all a nice site pitches of all grass and sand but pretty much level.

    Disliked: 

    No facilities off peak.

From the manager...

Hello
We thank you so much for your objective comments.

    Nice and quiet and clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    There was a pool there. Not open over the week only weekends. It showed that there was a bar and games room on the website. Neither of which was open. The ground is very sandy and loose making it very difficult to pitch our awning as the stakes and pegs just kept coming out. Overpriced for the stay, reason we chose to stay here was because of the facilities that were offered on the website. Nothing was open. A lot of money for not a lot of gain.

From the manager...

Hello
Despite of your sad opinion, we thank you for your feedback.
Facilities are only opened during high season. It is written on our website and on pitchup ! Pool is still opened on the weekends during june and september. Our prices are coherent regarding others campsites around with same facilities.
Finally, we are near the beach so pitches are sandy and we can not do anything about this.

This campsite should not advertise for camping pitch,08/12/2019

    The management dealt with our concerns fairly straight away....

    Disliked: 

    Well we booked to camp there for a week but we didn't stay as the pitch is nothing what you will class as pitch. We were given the parking area of the mobile home as a pitch. We couldn't even fit our tent there. As alternative we were given a pitch that they've just removed a mobile home... There still pipes coming out from the ground and it was like a sound dunes.... It was abysmal to say the least

From the manager...

Hello
Despite its severity, we thank you for your opinion. As you point out, we seek to best meet the concerns of our customers. If we attributed this other location to you, it is because the first one that was assigned to you did not suit you. So we looked for a solution and although complete, it was the only one we had left ... Unfortunately, it was either that or we could not accommodate you.
Best regards

    Pool was nice, food was ok and showers ok.

    Disliked: 

    No onsite shop. Asked on booking for pitches to be together but we were placed apart! For 3 nights had no sleep as a large group of people partied till 3am in morning without any thought for other campers, reported it to reception not sure if they dealt with it as they left after our 3rd day. We like to have a good time but that was not on.

From the manager...

Hello,
We thank you for your opinion.
We did have a shop onsite, but we closed it because there is a supermarket at 1.5km that is opened from 7am to 10pm.
Unfortunately, we are not responsible for the nuisance of some unscrupulous holidaymakers with the neighborhood. At night, a security guard is present to ensure calm, and he intervenes if necessary. In case the reception desk is warned of nuisance, we intervene systematically to calm or exclude the recalcitrant.
Best regards

    Disliked: 

    Cleanliness of toilet/shower block
    Cleanliness of the site in general - litter and dog poo left, particularly around the toilet block
    Very loud evening entertainments until very late (1:30pm) - not acceptable for those with young children
    Tent pitch being bumpy and dirty - lots of litter from previous campers

From the manager...

Hello
We thank you for your feedback.
Lavatories are cleaned twice a day, but unfortunaletly some customers are not as respectful for the accomplished work. Eather for dog poo, as we have free bags at the office !! We organize some entertainments to satisfy customers, only on friday and saturday with shows and DJ that lasts à 1h15am.
Hope to see you again !

Local attractions

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. Yet 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.
