The Picardy Coast
THE BAY OF SOMME
The Baie de Somme is located on the coast of the Picardie region in France. It extends over 70 km². It is of great ecological wealth, particularly as a bird sanctuary.
In 2011, the Baie de Somme was awarded the Grand Site de France label. It attracts walkers and weekend sportsmen. A cycle track allows you to go around the bay, from Le Crotoy to Saint Valery.
Three fishing and/or yachting harbours adorn the bay: Le Crotoy, Saint-Valery-sur-Somme and Le Hourdel.
The old town of Saint-Valery-sur-Somme has a remarkable medieval heritage.
