Information for ferry travellers

Ferry routes in and around France

Thanks to its central location and the adjacent seas, France is an important ferry country. The Channel, in particular, is a busy ferry route. Every day many ferries go back and forth between Ireland and France and England and France. Dover-Calais is the busiest route, with almost 60 daily sailings divided over three ferry operators.

Corsica is France's most famous destination, but you can also easily travel from France to Mallorca, Menorca or Sardinia. The Italian island Elba can be reached from Corsica. In addition, some of the Channel Islands can also be reached by boat from France.

From the ports of Sète and especially Marseille, long-distance ferries sail to Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. They are often older ships, but with some luck, you can book them cheaply (do this as far in advance as possible). That saves a lot of driving. Read our ferry guides for more details and information on where to book.
