Le Touquet Parking

Although Parking in Le Touquet has become more difficult in recent years with the parking zones steadily expanding. The Le Mascaret apartment is  close to a number of  car parks. Free car parking is available in certain areas especially in the mornings until 1pm.

Directly outside the apartment and generally available within the town centre are Free 60 minute bays. These use clever technology to sense when you have pulled up and the timer runs from then. They also make it very obvious when you have overstayed your  limit.

Most of the central area of Le Touquet is now covered by Pay and Display parking with modern meters readily available. All  meters accept cash or cards as payment and are very easy to use. Don’t try and read the instructions just look at the picture icons on on the meter.  Tariff is €1 – €2 per hour depending on where you park. Alternativley you may purchase a temporary permit from the Town Hall or either of the 2 tourist offices.
