A little edge of the world nearby
The Authie’s bay wild beauty takes you on a journey through land and sea, and into a landscape that feels like it’s at the edge of the world, shielded from the damaging hand of man. This place has not changed over many centuries, and the animals and marine plants settle and thrive in complete freedom.
The bay extends over 65 miles (105km) along the Opal Coast and Picardy, crossing – north to south – the towns and villages of Berck-sur-Mer, Groffliers, Waben, Conchil-le-Temple, Quend-Plage and Fort-Mahon-Plage. Lovers of the great outdoors will be pleasantly surprised to discover such diverse ecosystems spread over three distinct habitats.
