The Somme, a department of France located in the Picardie region , is best known for its part in World War I and the many memorials and military cemeteries which can now be found there, but further exploration reveals a very different side to the area. The Baie de Somme, where the Somme empties into the Channel, stretches for 14km and is one of the best-preserved bays in the whole country.
The area, which is where William the Conqueror hid his fleet before sailing to England, is still very much undiscovered. Despite this, it is often bustling with activity, either from fishermen, watersports enthusiasts or wildlife, depending on where exactly you visit. It is regarded as one of the best places for birdwatching in France, and you may find yourself more likely to see migrating birds than people elsewhere.
