Our opinion on the Phare Beach

Adresse of the Phare Beach : Quai Léonard 80550 Le Crotoy

Phare Beach in Le Crotoy stretches from the fishing port to the lighthouse opposite the Somme. It is the southernmost beach of the seaside resort. The environment is very pleasant with a view of the opposite bank, which stretches around the tip of Hourdel and Saint-Valéry-sur-Somme. Note that this beach is not monitored.

One must be careful when swimming because currents can be very strong. One cannot swim at low tide. The beach is mostly used for pleasure outings or to play.

Traffic in Crotoy is largely one-way. Follow the signs to the port. Access to the beach is via Leonard Quay.
