The port of Le Havre is the second largest commercial port in France after Marseilles. In terms of cargo handling, it is the tenth-largest port in Europe.
With the setting sun, we cross the Seine river and we make our way to the sea, immediately after the hotel check-in.
At the sweeping beach we find a number of inviting restaurants for dinner.
The red glowing sun and the kite surfers convey a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere. Due to the extensive sandy beach and the wide boulevards, the city could make a name for itself as relaxation and vacation spot.
The next morning we begin our exploration of the city right at the port. The remains of the Atlantic Wall from World War 2 are still present at the docks everywhere.
The most important turnover of the port is made with Mineral-oil products. Some refineries take care of the processing.
Besides that, however, Le Havre is also an important container and passenger port. The largest container ships can call at the port without problems, as can be easily observed at the CMA CGM Alaska.
Furthermore, Le Havre has a large marina and a small fishing port. Not only cruise ships like the AIDAcara but also ferries from and to England, use the passenger port.
