Our opinion on the Marais Beach

Adresse of the Marais Beach : Ch du Marais 80550 Le Crotoy

Marais Beach in Le Crotoy is located north of the city center and stretches to St Quentin en Tourmont. This totally pristine area is one of the wildest areas in the Somme. It is very pleasant for a stroll but swimming is more difficult (no seabed, violent changes in sea level, currents can be strong, mud at low tide). However, the beach is south oriented, ideal for sunbathing.

There are several accesses to get to this beach. The most convenient in our opinion and the most central is to go to the end of Jules Noiret dike (parking and playground for children).

This beach north of Crotoy is a wide stretch of sand with a totally wild environment. This picture was taken at high tide, so there is sand left to lie down. However, the sea withdraws very far at low tide.
