A nice trip to discover the Baie de Somme and some nice villages. Very laid back and relaxing. Gives you the opportunity to visit a couple of places without the hassle of driving/parking.

Very relaxing trip around the bay. Quite a long walk into Le Crotoy at the other end but good views all along the journey
