During your camping break, stop in the charming sea resort of Quend-Plage, 35km from Le Walric between the Baie de Somme and Baie d'Authie. Visit Le Marquenterre beach whose sand goes on for kilometres and is a go-to for land sailing with beautiful wild dune landscapes, a huge pine forest and hinterland with magical little hamlets that you can explore on footpaths and bike paths.
Visit Quend-Plage-Les-Pins and walk in the hinterland
After spending time walking in the old town's streets dotted with houses listed as local Picardy Coast heritage sites, look out for a one-of-a-kind belltower and stop at Saint-Vaast de Quend Church. Look left and you'll see a flamboyant gothic chapel dating back to the 15th century. After visiting the town, head for the beautiful scenery between Quend-Plage and Fort-Mahon. The Royon and Colombier footpaths are ideal for strolling or hiking on peaceful and leafy trails. You'll see the Dune du Royon and its many birds then, on the Quend-Plage road from Monchaux, you'll see farmlands, fields, meadows and woods. If you're into bike tourism, Quend is in the perfect place for the Le Tadorne loop (Le Marquenterre hamlets) that runs between the Baie de Somme and Baie d'Authie. You can explore the biggest dune area in Northern Europe at your own pace!
A 15km fine sand beach that makes campers happy!
Holidays in Quend also mean a very long beach that's popular with summer visitors who love covering the kilometres to lay down their beach towel on the resort's famously vast stretches of sand. Families adore the beach near Quend town centre because there's a lifeguard in summer. The dune-lined northern and southern beaches are more untamed and where water sports lovers give into their thirst for land sailing!
