Within Le Treport

Le Treport is small, everything is done on foot. There is a long parking area along the harbour and fish market, and a big and free parking on top of the cliffs next to the funicular.

For the rest, everything is walkable.

TIP: If you are coming by car or campervan (very few other choices), drive to the top of the cliffs, park there for free and take the free funicular down to the town.


There are many restaurants alongside the harbour, all next to each other. In total there are some 40 restaurants in town, with most of them alongside the harbour.

There are no Michelin starred restaurants in Le Treport.


Despite being a tourist destination, not many people stay overnight, since there are only some 5 hotels. The remainder are in the neighbouring towns.
