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 where park rangers will answer any question and offer their binocular to better watch the birds. They are every knowledgeable and passionate for wildlife. We had a really great day in this park.

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 in the morning.

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 on offer. The food was good and the value also. There is a gift shop which has some lovely things for all the family.
So after lunch we paid the 33.80 euro for the family of four plus 4€ to hire some high quality binoculars. There is a choice of 3 walks 2,4 and 6 km.
We did the 4km walk and it was wonderful, the kids loved it and so did mum and dad.
We then went to the town of Crotoy on the way back which was also very quaint.
The cost is high to get into this place but worth every penny.

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 lots of general waterbirds - it delivered on all fronts. The visitor centre at the entrance is comfortable and has a nice cafe - my husband stayed here and read in the sunshine whilst I wandered around the site for 3 hours +. A choice of three trails to follow all of which are well signposted and knowledgeable wardens in some of the hides. Cannot praise highly enough.
