This seaside resort expanded significantly with the opening of the railway to Paris in the early 20th century. The seafront villas and neighbouring streets became a 'Secteur Sauvegardé' (conservation area) in 1986. They are remarkable examples of Art Nouveau. Well worth a visit!
This attractive sailors' district is great for a walk. Crossed by two little parallel streets, it extends as far as the Sailors' Wayside cross with wonderful views over the Baie de Somme. Nicely decked with flowers, the (late 18th century) houses are painted in bright colours - an age-old tradition
