Located on the coast of Picardy, La Baie de Somme is the second largest estuarine complex in the Northwest of France after La Baie de Seine.
It opens on the Channel between La Pointe de Saint-Quentin North and the South Hourdel, 5 km apart from each other. It extends 9 km from Saint Valéry sur Somme at the forefront of Hourdel, and has been named the "country between land and sea."
Historically, the ecological interest of La Baie de Somme is known and recognized. Indeed, it is now the largest French colony of harbor seals who chose the Somme as a place of tranquility.
But there are also 65% of migratory avifauna European stationed there each year. Now, the recognition of the Somme is linked to a flawless beauty of the landscape and its lights, and has earned the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO, to appear in the club of the 30 most beautiful bays in the world and more recently to be a great national site!
La Baie de somme is also a subtle blend between a generous nature and men. More than 300 feet fishermen live off of resources offered by La Baie de Somme.
