The reserve is a lovely place to visit if you like bird watching, which we do but it is not child friendly. Doesn’t open till 10 o clock, late for bird watching! Long queues to get in as families hiring binoculars, maybe 2 queues would...More

A wonderful find. Had already got rather excited by sighting three spoonbills at Le Crotoy but that was no more than a taster before the feast. A fabulous place with three different paths from 1.5km to 6km, 15 bird hides and plenty of open water....More

We visited this park yesterday and were amazed how many different birds we got to watch. The different routes were well sign posted. We chose the longest and stayed over 4hrs. We could have gone round a lot faster but just kept spotting new birds....More

This was our second visit and it was a lovely day out. The park is so well designed and beautifully maintained. Do take or hire binoculars as there are very many different species of wild birds to see. The bird hides are excellent and the...More

For those who loves nature, especially bird watching, nice walk - can go with or without a guide. Can do other activities near-by like horse riding, cycling, visiting the base de Somme with the tides gone for miles etc. A wonder

Organized like National or State Parks in North America, with large parking lots, picnic area, restaurant, visitor center, bathrooms. We enjoyed watching wildlife throughout the day, and started we a guided tour without additional fee. Trails are very well maintained with a dozen watching areas...More

Great nature reserve for bird watching. Depending on seasons, migrations and tides, many species can be easily observed from the bird hides. You can share and learn with staff along the trail and informations are provided in several languages. Note that it opens at 10...More

I suggest searching for the full title, 'LE part du marquenterre'. I have posted a more detailed review there but trust me, it's good.

We stumbled across this place on a rainy morning. We'd check as we arrived and knew there was a cafe which opened at 12. Timing was perfect as the rain stopped at 1pm by which time we'd had the chance to enjoy the wonderful food...More

This is probably the best day's birdwatching I've ever experienced. The site is well maintained, quiet and the variety of birds and closeness to the hides is fantastic. For waders (ruff, lapwing, stilts, avocets), storks, spoonbills, egrets & herons and even a flamingo - plus...More
