Le Touquet one of the most elegant holiday resorts of northern France is home to lots of boutiques and shops, not to mention many hotels and restaurants. The owner of the Paris newspaper, ‘Le Figaro’, created the resort in 1876. Then this was a no-man's-land of low dunes, and forest - part of a hunting estate. It became known as "Paris by the sea", and strict building regulations encouraged the most talented architects to create imaginative and innovative developments.
This pretty resort was popular with the British, and took on the name of Le Touquet Paris-Plage in 1912 slowly turning itself into a year-round attraction with a good range of hotels, casinos, and expensive villas that are spaced out amid acres of woodland, offering every sport imaginable, particularly golf. There is nothing to beat strolling along the promenade, stopping off at patisseries for delicious pastries and cakes, and having long lunches in the bistros that dot the pretty streets. The beaches also offer plenty of activity with kite-surfing and sand-yachting to try.
