We’ve taken you to the Isle of Wight and its lovely landmarks, it is now time to explore Le Touquet. Let us hop on board of a Wingly plane for a splendid flight sharing experience to the jewel of the French beaches. Here is our rundown of the top 10 things to see and do in Le Touquet.
1 – Le Touquet Beach
This gorgeous beach is one of the most popular places to visit in Le Touquet. The beach itself is enormous, with the softest and clearest sand imaginable. With so much space to roam, there will always be an ideal place to settle and bask in the sun. Make sure to hurry there right after landing from your flight sharing experience to book a nice spot by the sea.
2- Rue St. Jean
Rue St. Jean is the traveler’s paradise. It is a beautiful street filled to the brim with market stalls. Not only will you be treated to the gorgeous French architecture of the houses and buildings, but you will feel as if you are part of the French culture as you mingle with the locals. Shop until you drop at the market and finish the day by visiting one of their memorable cafes or bars. This street will surely be the pinacle of your flight sharing experience.
3- Musee du Touquet
The Musee du Touquet is the ideal place to stop for lovers of fine art and culture. Their collections include contemporary art, photography, and restorations of famous works. These collections are comprehensive and truly impressive. For children and families, the museum offers educational programs during the school holidays. The museum will convince you to bring your children along on your flight sharing experience.
4 – Casino Barriere du Touquet
If you didn’t get enough adrenaline with your flight sharing experience, this is for you. Pop down to Casino Barriere, where gambling is the name of the game and more engaging than you could ever imagine. The attractive casino is lit up in the evenings.
5 – Le Touquet Lighthouse
For photographers, or those of you who love a good view, book a trip to the top of Le Touquet Lighthouse. It won’t take you as high up in the sky as your flight sharing experience, but it’s definitely worth the trip. Children will love climbing the 274-step-spiral staircase, and once you reach the top, you will be able to see for miles and miles on a clear day. The views are truly spectacular. This inland lighthouse is fascinating and features a little museum explaining its history.
6 – Marche Couvert
Marche Couvert translates to the “covered market” After giving it a visit you will be thoroughly satisfied, as all your bargain needs will be met here. The market features permanent stalls for their fresh fish, cheese, and vegetables, but they also have temporary stalls selling books, clothes, and furniture, so you will always find something new and exciting. This market is also very popular with the locals, so if you like to mingle this is the place to be. Another way to meet new people, just like flight sharing.
7 – Aqualud
If you are doing your flight sharing experience with children, visiting Aqualud is an absolute must. It features more than 2000 meters of water slides, warm pools and, most importantly, it is sure to provide plenty of fun for the whole family.
8 – Thalassa
This beautifully situated spa is all you will ever need when it comes to winding down in Le Touquet. Their luxurious suites have grand windows, providing its visitors with a brilliant view of the ocean. Overlook people partaking in water sports and paragliding from their indoor pool, with decking chairs lining the window, so you can lie back and enjoy the sight of the ocean. This spa will relieve your stress and make your holiday one to remember. The perfect conclusion to your flight sharing experience.
9 – Mini Golf du Touquet
Looking for family friendly fun? Visit Le Touquet’s Mini Golf center, where you can make your way around the course at a leisurely pace. It is located close to the seafront, so you can pair the experience with some ice cream and a walk along the sands to finish off the day. The course isn’t too challenging, so it is perfect for younger members of the family.
10 – Centre Equestre du Touquet
Since you will have been riding a plane on your flight sharing experience, we figured you would like to ride a horse. This riding center in Le Touquet features 65 acres of lush land, the hippodrome, and jumping courses with obstacles. As such, it can suit riders of all levels, including the experts who are looking for something a bit more challenging. For children, they have activities to suit every age, including pony games and vaulting. The private walks they offer through the lovely countryside shouldn’t be missed.
