Cayeux-sur-Mer and Le Hourdel
To the lighthouse
Le Hourdel is a hamlet in Cayeux-sur-Mer featuring a striking green and white lighthouse which marks the south entrance to the Somme Bay. You can reach this little fishing port by bicycle by way of a safe cycle path. It's the ideal place to watch the Somme Bay seals.
Cayeux-sur-Mer means "Pebbly-on-sea", but the resort has much more to offer than that. It also boasts old-fashioned beach huts, a trail through dunes, pine woods in Brighton (yes, there's one in France too!), fresh air and a huge sandy beach visible for 1½ hrs at low tide.
