The Bay of Somme - Tourism in the Somme

With its 7200 hectares the Bay of Somme is the largest estuary of the North of France. It is an unspoiled place composed of vast areas alternating between dunes, marshes and salt meadows.

Situated on the route of the migrating birds, the Nature reserve of the Bay of Somme, and especially the Marquenterre park, is a peaceful haven for numerous wild birds stopping here to rest. The Bay of Somme also has the unusual feature of being home to a seal colony.

To discover the rich fauna and flora of the Bay of Somme, head to the Marquenterre ornithological park, and the Bay of Somme and bird centre (Maison de la Baie de Somme et de l'Oiseau) in Lanchères.

The Bird and Nature festival, which takes place in April on the Picardy Coast in Abbeville, offers conferences, exhibitions and outings in relation with Nature and ornithology.

The small steam train connecting Le Crotoy to Cayeux-sur-Mer is a wonderful way to discover the landscapes of the Bay of Somme.
