If you want to explore the real location of one of World War II’s most important military manoeuvres, also known as the “Miracle of Dunkirk”, you can sail directly to Dunkirk Port from Dover in just two hours.
Whilst there, you can visit the Dunkirk War Museum, located in Bastion 32, the headquarters for the French and Allied Forces during the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo.
Other places of historical interest include the three famous World Heritage sites in Dunkirk, which you can climb to the top of. They are the Gravelines bell tower, the Saint Eloi lighthouse and the watchtower of the Town Hall.
Dunkirk’s 15km of sandy beaches, of course, are not to be missed. Aside from their historical significance, they are wonderful to stroll along, and if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, then you might want to try kitesurfing, land sailing or even mountain boarding over the beautiful white sand dunes.
Access to the Port of Dunkirk is easy and fast, due its size and location and you can be on the main arterial roads straight from the ferry in a matter of minutes.
The Port’s location, around 20 miles east of Calais, means that it is a perfect point of entry for onward travel into France, but also to neighbouring Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. A busy port, Dunkirk welcomes 3.2 million passengers each year’
