Frances northernmost town has a good variety of activities to enjoy, whether you are a foodie or a history buff. If you are a fan of history, take a trip to see the Duchesse Anne, the last remaining full-rigged ship under French flag. Another significant historical attraction is the Malo les Bains beach, where more than 300,000 Allied troops were evacuated during the legendary Operation Dynamo in World War II. Gravelines, a picturesque town encircled by moats and ramparts, is just half an hours drive away. Calais, which is known for its delicious local cheese, wine and meat, is just 40 minutes journey by car.
