Calais
Gravelines
The Vélomaritime leaves Calais, the leading French port for crossings to England, guiding you towards Le Platier d'Oye Nature Reserve, a major European ornithological site. Welcome to the Pays des Wateringues, a part of the wider Flandres Maritimes area (French coastal Flanders)! This stage ends at Gravelines, the port's fortifications, designed by Louis XIV's great engineer Vauban, superbly preserved and a pleasure to walk around.

The route

From the beach at Blériot-Plage, you then cross Calais using a variety of cycle ways. Between Calais and Oye-Plage, the cycle route will be laid out in the course of 2021, using segregated cycle lanes and rural tracks. Between Oye-Plage and Grand-Fort Philippe, quiet parish roads allow you to cycle along close to the Platier d'Oye Nature Reserve before reaching Gravelines. "
