What better than a little nap
on the sunloungers?

You will enjoy relaxing on the sunloungers in our pool area. Comfortable, there are numerous sunloungers laid out, so that you can always find one free! What better than stretching out on one of these sunbeds to make the most of the sunshine and get a suntan. The Baie de Somme estuary is close by, 2 kilometres from here. You simply have to listen carefully to hear the noise of the waves, as the tide rises, and hear the birds sing…you relax on the Le Ridin campsite…

After the swimming pool
a detour via the beach!

Our campsite is only 1.5 kilometres from the Le Crotoy beach, whose sand sinks slowly into the Baie de Somme. To swim, you therefore have the choice between the heated swimming pool on our campsite and the beach! Here children can build sand castles, do shore fishing and many other activities besides. The Baie de Somme beaches are acknowledged for their natural beauty, but also for the extraordinary diversity of nautical and sports activities that they accommodate. From kite surfing to longe côte (walking in the sea in waders) dug out canoeing, sea kayaking, sailing, horse rides on the sand, etc., to sand yachting, as on the beach at Fort Mahon. During your family stay at Le Ridin, you will be able to both discover and practise many of these leisure activities!

Shore fishing
or picking sea asters?

The beach is not only set aside for swimming or doing sports and nautical activities! You can walk, breathe in the sea air, enjoy the view here as from Le Hourdel or Saint Valéry sur Somme, which afford unique views over Le Crotoy bathed in sunlight, thanks to its being directly south-facing. You can also, as a family and with the children, do shore fishing. A leisure activity which delights children, who can thus discover here and there, detouring via a rock and with the help of a shrimping net, a crab, a shrimp or even a cockle! Watch out though as when the mighty tide comes in again, it is time for you to leave! The countryside changes as quickly as the “ridins”. These ridges of sand from which the campsite takes its name, are shaped by the currents as the tide goes out…
