Dunkirk and the Flanders dunes
An inspirational dune landscape
As you cycle from Dunkirk to the Belgian border, 15 kilometres (9 miles) of sandy beaches unfold, with over 1,000 hectares (2471 acres) of natural spaces, on this distinctive stretch of dune landscape, with uncommon features. The whole of the coastal zone is located on a key migratory route for European birds from the north-west.

The Vélomaritime is currently a work in progress in this area. For your safety, we cannot recommend a satisfactory cycle route at this point in time. Check into the website from time to time to check its progress :)
