Dunkirk is another ferry port East of Calais.  By getting the ferry here instead of Calais you are shaving off some miles from the route.  This is a good option if you are short on time.  Dunkirk itself doesn’t offer than much in terms of tourist attractions so we suggest you opt for a cheap no frills bed close to the port to get some good quality rest before doing some serious miles!

Hotel Ibis

The IBIS hotel is a clean, modern and comfortable hotel a stones throw away from the town centre.  Prices start from only €57 and it includes a buffet breakfast to set you on your way.

Best Hotel

This is a budget 2 star hotel 4 miles from Dunkirk and 8 miles from Calais.  This is a good middle option if you haven’t yet decided which ferry you are getting!  The staff are friendly and used to accommodating cyclists and their bikes.

Aparthotel All Appart

The Aparthotel is right on the Dunkirk waterfront and is super modern.  The accommodation includes small kitchenettes which is great to keep food costs down making this an ideal choice for groups.
