An Afternoon Out in Le Touquet

Light House - Le Touquet

Visit the Le Touquet Lighthouse (Le Phare) for a great afternoon out.

Come and feel the breeze and the cleanness of air as your eyes wander the amazing panorama before you. With 274 steps it’s a challenging climb but perfect for tiring the children out.  The view from the inland lighthouse is stunning and it is definitely one of the top selfie spots in Le Touquet.  Also known as the Canche lighthouse it’s impressive structure of 57.6 meters has guarded the Canche Estuary since 1949.

From the top of the Lighthouse with good visibility you can expect to see the bay of Canche with the Norman cliffs,  the ramparts of the city of Montreuil and, the wooded dunes of the Opal Coast.

On a clear day looking Northwest from the viewing point you can see England and the White Cliffs of Dover approximately 70Km away.

For such a dominating light across Le Touquet you would expect a very powerful bulb. However each lamp is only 250 Watts giving a range of up to 25 nautical miles.
The optical lenses used today were recovered from the lighthouses war damaged predecessor dating from 1900.
