French Connections

The Port of Dunkirk (also called Dunkerque) is located north of Calais and so is ideally situated for visitors to Paris and Brussels as well as destinations further afield in Northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The Port of Dunkirk is used for both cargo and passenger traffic and has been undergoing some rejuvenation in the last few years to offer a wider range of improved facilities. Passengers are now able to benefit from new 24/7 refreshment, entertainment and comfortable seating facilities on the first floor of the terminal, which has been completely refurbished to a very high standard.

For things to see and do in the area there is a Port museum that has a rich collection of Maritime history as well as a museum of fine art. You can also enjoy dinner cruises in the port, water sports and a bustling city centre, or explore the long sandy beaches famous from the Dunkirk evacuation of World War 2.
