Etaples tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Etaples is a dynamic little fishing port which has survived many a fire and invasion.  It is a good spot to discover the reserve naturelle de la Baie de la Canche with over 420 plant species.  You'll really get a feel for estuary life here which is reinforced by the presence of the Maison de la Faune et de la Flore which has some impressive aerial photos of the area.

Those who enjoy seafood will be truly spoiled in Etaples with fresh fish being sold directly off the boats and at the fish market on Tuesdays and Fridays.  La Gainée is a local dish in which four different types of fish are used.

With such authentic charm it is hardly surprising that so many artists have been attracted to Etaples over the years!
