Welcome to LFAK visitors
Dunkerque and the french Flanders. The airfield is located along the border with Belgium, between the villages of Ghyvelde and Les Moëres, approximately 5 kms or 3 statute miles south of Bray-Dunes, the nearest resort on North Sea french coast.
(See map on the right side ===> ) Bray-Dunes is definitely the closest ride from LFAK for a lunch along the beach. A bit farther, Dunkerque and more specifically the district of Malo-les-Bains, offers a casino and a lineup of bar and restaurants along the beach, called "Digue de Mer".
