There are only 6 seaside resorts in the Somme department. The last cliffs of Côte d’Albâtre, located in the south of the department, make the beaches of Seine-Maritime attractive. In Ault, one can admire on a clear day the range of chalk stretching to infinity south with some valleuses leaving an opening towards the sea.
From Ault, the beaches of the Somme change. There are vast stretches of sand, a true playground when the tide withdraws. Sports enthusiasts can discover them by sand yachting, emblematic sport of northern France. One goes from one seaside resort to another in an unspoilt landscape with beautiful dunes and especially extra-fine sand. Hikers are not forgotten with many trails through forests and dunes leading to small corners of paradise, not very frequented.
North of the Bay of Somme, there are two small seaside resorts, Quend-Plage and Fort-Mahon-Plage, before reaching the beaches of the north of the department, which are nearby.
