Merlimont is a charming family resort in the heart of the Côte d'Opale, between Berck and Le Touquet. One of its most striking features are the sand dunes which line the beach which extends for 3 kms between Berck Sur Mer and Stella Plage. The town is divided into two parts. There is the 'beach' and the 'village' and 70% of the houses are in fact holiday homes.
There are four hotels, four camp sites and two holiday centres as well as gites, Bed and Breakfast properties and properties to let.
At the start of the season there are days to discover all the different activities in May. You can experiment with jet skis, quad bikes, catamarans, sailing boats, sand yachting and other activities
If you have had a surfeit of sun, sand and moules frites and want a change of scene and have exhausted the possibilities of Merlimont, the amusement parc of Bagatelle is just up the road with rides, a children's zoo and a variety of different attrations guaranteed to keep the young happy for hours!
The office of tourism is situated in Place de la Gare just near the Tennis Courts. Hélène and Sandrine will be delighted to welcome you and answer all your questions. They can advise you on where to stay, restaurants, cultural and sporting activities, market, antiques and even the 'Weekend of Chocolate'.
