Finish your maritime heritage visit with a monument, Etaples-sur-Mer, the fishermen’s museum, and a picturesque marina. Trawlers can no longer moor in Etaples due to silt blocking the Canche bay. But fishing continues here in an exceptional heritage site. Which you will understand after visiting Maréis, the sea fishing museum. When the main fishing ports - Dunkirk, Boulogne, and Calais emerged, the town chose to specialise in herring. In November there is a two-day festival of music and activities and entertainment permeated by the scent of herrings. And all year round there are musical events, blessings, shows, and in October, boat races “joutes à canotes”.
