Somme Bay and Picardy coast

Somme Bay and Picardy coast

The Picardy coast spreads for about 40 kms from Mers-les-Bains in the south, up north to the Authie Bay. The coast varies. Down south, chalky cliffs from the Pays de Caux spread out beyond Ault before giving way to a vast maritime plain – les Bas Champs – bordered by a pebble bar doubled by a sand bar up north. Large and deep, the “Baie de Somme’s” jagged mouth splits the Bas Champs and the sandy coast of the Manquerre bordered by dunes anchored by the inner pine forest. The Authie’s river mouth ends this domain. This very flat coast was conquered by men and remains exposed to marine invasion with each strong tempest. Despite the inconvenience of the natural filling of the estuary, the “Baie de Somme” still shelters a few ports holding an interesting story. Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, which has seen William the Conqueror depart for England; Le Crotoy on the other bank with a Roman installation that witnessed a prosperous era during Middle Age. Hourdel fishing port located at the entrance of the Bay has a more recent installation justified by its better accessibility.
A preserved world, paradise for migrating birds, this wild coast will surely seduce you. It might be its particular lighting. It might be this world where everything seems still; where the land, the ocean and the sky seem to come together. A complete return to Nature, an intense moment of happiness.
