The Bay of Somme

The Bay of Somme is sure to delight lovers of the great outdoors and nature, just as it charmed many painters and writers of the past

"...The Bay of Somme, still humid, darkly reflects an Egyptian sky, raspberry, turquoise, and ash green...." Colette.

Amateur photographers can collect snaps of the Bay and its sandy beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see, like Quend and Fort Mahon Plage.

More athletic visitors won’t go short of thrills, with sand yachting, kite surf, pirogues and the Belle Dune Golf Course.

You can also explore the Bay on a horse ride; the Henson is a gentle and sturdy little horse that’s ideal for beginners! In the area there are many equestrian centres that also welcome more experienced riders.

Then don’t forget Bay of Somme’s Scenic Train: settled comfortably in their seats, young ones will be enchanted by this journey through time, full steam ahead. It will take you to Le Crotoy, Saint Valéry sur Somme and Cayeux sur Mer.

During your stop in Saint Valéry or Cayeux, don’t hesitate to pay a visit to the Picarvie Museum and the House of the Bay of Somme.
