Situated in the Nature reserve of the Bay of Somme, the Marquenterre park is a wild birds paradise. You’ll enjoy miles of sandy beaches and dunes and 250-hectare of nature at its best, composed of marshes, dunes, and forests.
The bird’s reserve hosts around 350 species of birds and animals. Since you packed light, you can rent binoculars and hide in one of the 13 observation posts that allow you to easily observe birds from all over Europe or back from Africa. All along the route and in the observation posts, guides will help you watch and identify the birds.

Frequently Asked Questions
Best Time To Visit
The best time to visit France is in spring (April-May), summer (June-August), or fall (September-October).
Spring season is pleasant across the country, with fewer crowds and temperatures ranging from 55F to 68F (13C to 20C). Temperature can rise up to 84°F (29C) in summer, but it’s still not too hot to keep exploring France. Autumn is warm and cozy, with temperatures between 61°F and 77°F (16C to 25C), where you’ll find vibrant views as the leaves change color.
France enjoys mild temperatures, although you can expect some differences between the different regions. There’s a Mediterranean climate in the south and wetter weather in the north. In August summer vacation, most of the country closes down to chase the sunshine in the south. If you’re ok with the cold, winter is one of my preferred times to explore Paris, as there are fewer tourists, yet the restaurants are still active with locals.
Remember to check the weather forecast few days before the trip and before heading to the airport.
