Picardy boasts a magnificent coast-line, with its beautiful Somme Bay , one of the most beautiful bays in the world. This marvellous, natural site, an open mouth into the English channel, offers magnificent landscapes, with its expanses of open water, dunes, marshes and salt-water meadows, enhanced by an enchanting light, which inspired a good number of painters, such as Degas or Delacroix. The Somme Bay is one of the pearls of Picardy. It houses an extraordinary variety of flora and fauna, whose existence is regulated by the tides : migrating birds, seals, salt-water meadow sheep, horses. An exhilarating breath of fresh air !.
