school language trips to
The Opal Coast, France

Affectionately named ‘Paris-by-the-sea’, historically, the charming Opal Coast was often the chosen holiday destination of affluent French families due to its pretty promenades, beautiful beaches and colourful beach houses.

Today, school language trips to The Opal Coast offer lively street markets and youthful vibes, all within close proximity to the UK.

Particularly ideal for younger groups, the Opal Coast gives students a whole host of opportunities to put what they’ve learnt in the classroom to the test with the friendly locals. From traditional markets and Le Touquet’s sandy beaches to the sugar-filled sweet and chocolate factories, it’s the perfect destination for a first language trip.
