So here’s the rest of my short daytrip to Cap Gris Nez and Wimereux.
Wimereux is a small coastal town in the Pas-de-Calais department which is situated just a few kilometers from Boulogne-Sur-Mer. Napoleon I, the Emperor of France from 1804 till 1814, has ordered to build a town and a port here in 1806. At first the town was built for the army and after 1810, more and more family settled down in the area.
Villas and hotels in front of the sea
The beach huts
We were so lucky to have bright blue sky that day
While walking around the town, we encounterd a mix style of architecture, mainly anglo-normand and Belle-Epoque style. I was also attracted to the intense and bright colours of the houses. It really gave the town a vibrant feel.
We arrived there quite late in the afternoon so we hadn’t had the chance to try any of the restaurants. However, from what I see around the main street and the sea front, there are some good ones where you can get seafood and typical northern dishes such as mussels and french fries.
A very nice independent shop with a great selection of preppy and coastal style clothes
Hope my photos give you a glimpse of this cute town. Till next post!
