Located in France, the territory known as ?of Bay of Somme? extends on 70 km ² between the point from Hourdel in the south and the point from Saint-Quentin-in-Tourmont in north. The Sum, river coastal which gave its name to the department, is thrown in the English Channel at this place.
The bay is mainly made up of two mediums: the slikke, covered by the sea twice a day, the salt meadow or?mollières? who is covered by the sea only at the time of the spring tides.
