Cap Gris-Nez (literally “cape grey nose;” Koap Zwartenesse (West Flemish)) is a cape on the Côte d'Opale in the Pas-de-Calais département in northern France.You can plan Audinghen trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
It is between Wissant and Audresselles, in the commune of Audinghen.
The cliffs of the cape are the closest point of France to England – 34 km (21 mi) from their English counterparts at Dover. Smothered in sea pinks and thrift, the cliffs are a perfect vantage point to see hundreds of ships, from oil tankers to little fishing trawlers, plying the waters below. On a clear day, the emblematic white cliffs of Dover on the English shore can be seen.
Cap Gris Nez reviews
The closest point in France to England. A pleasant walk from a car park to the lighthouse and the coast which overlooks the White Cliffs if Dover and - less easy to see - Dungeness. Fantastic views... more »
Cap Gris Nez is a very worthwhile detour from the route to Calais. Very fine views across the channel and up and down the coast, with several viewing platforms. Plentiful interesting displays... more »
Don't miss this place when you are in thexarea. Although a bit windy, the view is magnificent especially in a sunny day!
A hidden spot with fantastic view, went there twice and never got enough of it.
