The mayor’s message
— Cayeux-sur-Mer stretches over 14 km along the coastline and faces the sea —
Welcome everyone to Cayeux-sur-Mer
Own town is one of the oldest seaside resorts in France. Created around 1850 at the time when sea bathing was in fashion, it was then designated as a health resort in 1928. The mark of these old times is still visible in town.
Cayeux-sur-Mer stretches over 14 km along the coastline and faces the sea.
Its port, Le Hourdel, is located at the mouth of one of the most beautiful bays in the world the Somme Bay.
Le Hourdel is both a marina and a fishing Harbour which is still active and where you can buy prawns and fish on the quay when the boats return.
From the port, follow the coastline towards the south, on foot or on bike .At the edge of the hamlet, you will see the colony of seals.
Then, ride through the hamlet of Brighton whose name reminds us of its British origin. Visit the wood and discover its subtle scents and go past the lighthouse.
To cross the main beach of Cayeux-sur-Mer, take the 1800-meter-long plank way bordered with cubicles. You will go past the “Benoit Champy” life-boat, the jewel of Cayeux’s maritime heritage and many amenities enabling people to practice leisure and water activities. As you move towards “Le Hable d’Ault” bird sanctuary, you will see a magnificent landscape appear: the cliffs of Le Treport and Dieppe.
You have just travelled a region typical of the Picardy coast through the diversity and beauty of the scenery and through the protection of the coastal environment.
We wish you all very good holidays.
