The Pas-de-Calais department is best known for the famous chalk cliffs Cap Blanc-Nez and Cap Gris-Nez on the Opal Coast. However, the region has much more to offer, such as the Romelaere nature reserve, the bays of the Canche and Authie and the region of the Seven Valleys and the Ternois. Lots of walking fun not so far from home.
The Somme meanders through the landscape to form a bay in the far west and empty into the sea. The beautiful Bay of the Somme is a patchwork of mud flats and salt marshes, which drown every day in the rising tide. It is also one of the jewels of the Picardy coast with a vast dune area to the north, perpendicular chalk cliffs to the south and some picturesque seaside resorts in between.
