Travel Tips from people who've been to Nord-Pas-de-Calais
Wissant, c'est un bon village avec un très bon terrain de camping. Wissant est près de calais et à la plage. Avec une bonne vue, vous pouvez vue les falaises de dover !

Boulogne-sur-Mer has a very nice youth hostel. The bars aren't that good, but with some booze, you can have a lot of fun at the beach at night.
