We have been here many times and this quaint little fishing town still remains one of our favourite spots in western France. The amazing thing about it is that it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve seen it, it always looks different with the changing of the tides and the light reflected in the bay of the Somme. It is simply a beautiful and relaxing way to finish our holiday, taking a long stroll over the sand dunes above the marshes and along the pier back into town.
If you have a motorhome, you simply must come here. The aire is just by the bay and the marina for only 5€ a day and you’ll be spoilt for choice of fish restaurants, all very reasonably priced. Even in January, there are about 20 campervans staying at the motorhome aire, and it’s not just the motorhomers, whole families with children of all ages come out in the afternoon to enjoy this glorious sight and the sun.
We did not make it to Normandy, as we stayed that extra day at Lake Bounty, but still no fish! So we headed for Brogley on Wednesday to take Beano to the vet’s first thing on Thursday morning before coming to Le Crotoy. Tomorrow is shopping at Au Chan at Boulogne-sur-Mer (exit 31 on A16) and then back to Wissant, where we are hoping to enjoy a nice long and no doubt windy walk on the beach again. It will be an early start on Saturday morning for our crossing back to England in the Channel Tunnel.
Not sure if we’ll come back in February. I feel I’d like to wait till the weather warms up a bit at Easter time and we’ll have more time to go further down south. We’ll see.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
