Facing the Strait of Dover, the site of Cap Gris-Nez has a European reputation for the observation of migratory birds. These cliffs, composed of sandstone and marl, stand guard over the sea for about fifty metres. The sea-salted meadows on the edge of the cliff are worth a visit in the month of May, the flowering period of the sea thrift. The tip of Cap Gris-Nez was redeveloped as part of Operation Grand Site in 2008 to support the reception of approximately one million visitors per year. It is now accessible for persons with reduced mobility. Viewpoints offer breath-taking views of the Strait, Wissant Bay and Cap Blanc-Nez. You might even catch a glimpse of the seals swimming below!
