Malo-les-Bains is a 19th Century seaside town and was described as having "fin de siecle charm". Like my own local beach this vast sandy beach also has a New Years Day swim, I have never been tempted into the water at that time of year, brrr.
Malo-les-Bains is by Dunkirk so the scene in 1940 when the little ships came to rescue British and French troops from this very beach in World War II was very different
as they scuttled their vehicles behind them.I have never been to this part of northern France but always associate it more with the port, like this card
I discovered on the web. I don't know why because there are some fabulous stretches of sand on this coast.
