Why not sail across Baie d'Authie during your future camping holiday in Picardy? Between Pas-de-Calais and the Somme, Baie d'Authie is a miniature replica of Baie de Somme where you will see hikers, people looking for shellfish and hunters. Each year, it attracts almost 500,000 visitors who come here to explore a preserved natural site, the exceptionally rich fauna and flora and some magnificent landscapes made of earth, sand and water.
Guided tour with commentary in Baie d'Authie
To get the most out of your visit to Baie de l'Authie during your stay at the 3-star Les Galets de la Mollière campsite, you can call on the services of a professional guide, since some parts of the bay can be dangerous. Guides can organise hikes on foot, by bike, on horseback or in a canoe, nature outings, and workshops to explore the different environments in the Authie bay and estuary. Depending on the weather, you might need boots or walking shoes, a hat and sunglasses, rain gear or a windcheater and, of course, a pair of binoculars.
The majestic landscapes of the Bay
From Fort-Mahon-Plage in the south to Berck-sur-Mer in the north, Baie d'Authie offers a wide range of landscapes. You will be amazed by the immensity of the Routhauville Point, the sun setting over the Authie dunes, birds in flight above the marshland, the changing colours, from the green of the salicornia to the mauve of the sea lavender... This diversity has led to the development of highly varied flora and fauna on land and sea: seals, storks, frogs, herring, grey shrimp, cormorants, little egrets, stinking iris, water mint, etc.
Our campsite favourites:
- See the harbour seals and the grey seals in the north of the Authie estuary
