The Marina

With 590 moorings spread across 3 docks and several facilities available for recreational boaters, the marina at Boulogne-sur-Mer is a fantastic base

...from which to explore the delights of Boulonnais. 

What a pleasure to be able to moor up your motorboat or 25-metre sailing boat at the edge of the largest fishing port in France and on the doorstep of a city rich in 2,000 years of history! The other huge benefit in addition to the marina’s large reception capacity in Boulogne-sur-Mer is being right in the centre of an amazing city. The app ‘App'y marinas Côte d'Opale’ will help you plan your sightseeing and is ready to use, via geolocation, as soon as you enter the port. It will tell you all about the facilities at the port as well as tourist outings which are available in the area. You can choose between four themes: culture, nature, cuisine and sailing.
