The town is just north of Boulogne at the mouth of the river with the same name. It is one of the biggest seaside resorts along the Opal Coast, it is also called the 'Blankenberge' of the Opal Coast. On the north side there is a rocky coast. When the weather is good, you can still see the white cliffs of Dover from here.
