Bay of the Somme

One of the World's Most Beautiful Bays

The Bay of the Somme is located west of the Somme département and it is the largest estuary in the north of France covering nearly 7,200 hectares (17,792 acres). Thought to be one of the most beautiful bays in the world, it opens into the English Channel by a very large mouth and for this reason, depending on the tides and the season, the landscape changes constantly, with dunes, cliffs, pebbles shores, meadowland, and marshes where hundreds of birds stop on their migrations.


The Bay of the Somme is certified a Grand Site de France.
