Sustainable tourism in Saint Valery sur Somme
The city of Saint Valéry Sur Somme is a real charm asset and an essential stopover for responsible travellers who visit the Baie de Somme
The village is the most important harbour on the Picardy coast, walking around the small marina is a nice idea. Here the preservation of the Bay and its ecosystem is practised right down to the pontoons of the boats. Indeed, the municipality of Saint Valéry sur Somme has been awarded the Blue Flag since 2011.
Saint Valéry sur Somme is a good starting point to discover the bay and its exceptional biodiversity.
You can visit it on foot, by sea kayak, by bike or even by train. A railway allows the 80-year-old steam train to connect Cayeux Sur Mer to Le Crotoy via Saint Valery sur Somme and Noyelles Sur Mer.
If you can, visit the region with a nature guide, you’ll learn more about the secrets of this bay, its natural richness, its fauna and flora.
The city itself offers sightseeing attractions and some picturesque streets, such as the sailors’ quarter, a medieval town and nice piers to walk around the town.
Don’t miss a taste of local specialities, bought at the Sunday market or directly at the harbor. You’ll also appreciate its many small restaurants, some of which are even eco-labelled.
Nice getaway in perspective!
