Boulogne-sur-Mer is only 50 mins away by RIB or powerboat from Rye Harbour. Why not book a trip for lunch or to stay the night. Boulogne-sur-Mer has some fantastic fish restaurants and great hotels.
There is also a sheltered beach inside the harbour wall which is fab for swimming, sunbathing and kitesurfing. Price start from £90pp for the day trip from Rye to Boulogne-sur-Mer and back. We have good local knowledge of the Boulogne area and can recommend some cracking restaurants such as The Chticharivari Restaurant serving Meat Fondue, Fondue Savoyarde and Raclette. All fine mountain specialities from the Alps ideal after a great crossing of the channel.
