Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

A16 Junction 40 Cap Blanc Nez dog walk near Calais, France



An ideal spot to stretch your legs and exercise the pooch before or after a channel crossing.  The white cliffs of Dover glisten in the distance while the long sandy beaches of the Opal Coast stretch for miles in both directions.

The visible history of the last 100 years marks the landscape, although the concrete structures built to support the heavy guns that once imperilled channel shipping are now more likely to house tractors and hens.

Whatever the weather, there's always something to enjoy here. And it's a big bonus that the paths are surfaced so you don't have to start a journey with wet muddy feet.

Very Convenient For The Tunnel

Very easy to find and very convenient for some excersise before or after crossing The Channel.

Once we reached the obelisk we wanted to turn left but found someone had put a gate across the pathway and the righthand path looked as if it had some steep drops so we walked back towards the car park and then took a path off to the left and this was a great place for some off lead excercise. We just turned back and retraced our steps when we were ready to leave.

DwD Team - many thanks for this useful update. We're not sure whether there's an erosion problem and hence the gate. It's the GR120 path so there must be a reason!
