"On a beautiful Monday" Sangatte by Groentje

Sangatte Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 26 photos

Cruising along the French Nord Coast

I had to go to Lille last month to go and buy tickets for a concert over there in October (for those of you who'd like to know which concert: it's the one of Placebo - they rule! as well). Unfortunately they were sold out, but we took a bit of a drive to other small towns and pieces of natural beauty afterwards.
Sangatte will always be known as the name of the refuge center where many immigrants tried to escape to the Eurostar Tunnel to get access to the UK. For me, it's also the name of the place closest to Cap-Blanc-Nez, a truely grand and hassle-free spot. Just look at the amazing picture and feel/hear the wind going right past you!
