For a small town Le Touquet-Paris-Plage has an awful lot to offer. From 1920s glamour to family fun and even high-octane beach sports, there's never a dull moment in this luxurious seaside escape.
Known as 'Paris-on-Sea', Le Touquet-Paris-Plage is enjoying a popularity revival from its early 20th Century heyday, when it was a playground for the wealthy and the escape of choice for the British literary establishment. Noted writers such as PG Wodehouse, Noël Coward and HG Wells have all taken a promenade along the town's long picturesque beach and basked in its golden sunshine.
Ravaged by the Second World War, Le Touquet-Paris-Plage's popularity briefly diminished, but today its charm and faded seaside glamour has made it more popular than ever, with the chic residents of Paris migrating to its sandy shore every summer.
Take a wander through the town's streets and you'll soon find dazzling examples of 1920s design flair, with an array of colourful historic seaside villas to discover.
