Somme Bay ranked as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. Take a walk or bike ride and enjoy the fresh air, explore the beaches and many available trails and cross the golden sandbanks at low tide. The bay also benefits from being one of France’s essential stopovers for migrating birds, settling alongside the harbor seals and other animals profiting from the bay foods variety.
