Dunkirk Ferry Terminal
Dunkirk Ferry Port offers a frequent ferry service to Dover, England.
Dunkirk ferry port is situated on the northern coast of France, and is France’s third largest port after Marseille and Le Havre. Dunkirk was for many years just a small fishing village and throughout history has been invaded by the Spanish, French, English and Dutch, but has remained in French hands ever since 1662. Dunkirk has some incredible dunes and a beautiful, lively beach with soft sand at Malo-Les-Bains. At the right time of year the sea breeze is strong making Dunkirk a great location for wind- and kite-surfers.
