Watten is located at the limit of the French Flanders historical county. However, the local Dutch dialect is virtually extinct. The neighbouring villages are Wattendam , Millam, Serques, Éperlecques and Wulverdinghe.
While Watten belongs to the Nord département, it is bordering the Pas-de-Calais département. The village is crossed by the rivers Aa and Colme.
