THE BAY OF SOMMERanked among the most beautiful bays in the world, the Bay of Somme received the “Grand Site de France” label in 2011. From Fort-Mahon to Hourdel, it is an endless succession of cliffs, sands, dunes, pebbles and marshes. Don’t miss the Marquenterre bird sanctuary, or a walk along the Crotoy coast; then admire the charm of the Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme's quaint port. The range of activities possible is limitless in this bay measuring 37,900 hectares, with at times otherworldly light. At low tide, you can see a colony of seals that have chosen to make it home. It is the biggest one in France.
