Maréis is located in Etaples-sur-mer, next to Le Touquet.

Maréis uses an original concept so that you can discover the surprising work of today’s sea-fishermen as well as the various species found in the English Channel and North Sea. Marvel at over 500 creatures living in their reconstructed natural environment.

Behind their 7-centimetre-thick glass walls, you’ll come face to face with the treasures of the English Channel and North Sea, from 2-metre congers to sea horses just 10 centimetres tall.

Lose yourself in the rapture of the deep, follow the gaze of the underwater camera from the beach, and take a last look at the ray eggs ready to hatch.

Finally, pluck up the courage to plunge your hands into the touching pool to join in the ballet of rays and other fish.
