The Baie de Somme is well served by SNCF 'Intercity' trains (on the Paris/Amiens/Boulogne route) and by the SNCF TER local services for the Picardy Region. The SNCF station at Noyelles-sur-Mer is located in the heart of the area served by the 'Réseau des Bains de Mer' (the 'sea-bathers' railway') which is operated by the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme. In addition, there is a bus service between the SNCF station at Rue to Le Crotoy.

Don't forget the Trains à la Mer (see the relevant page), offering a day by the sea at reduced prices on certain days during the holiday season from SNCF stations in Picardy!
To come by bus, you can find information on the site of the 'Réseau des cars départementaux de la Somme' (Conseil Général de la Somme – Trans'80). Look for prices and timetables for buses serving Le Crotoy, Noyelles-sur-Mer, Saint-Valery-sur-Somme & Cayeux-sur-Mer on the Trans'80 site.
The Baie de Somme is located close to the A16 motorway between Paris and Calais, via Amiens. The A28, which leaves the A16 at Abbeville, leads to the Baie de Somme and its historic railway, the 'Réseau des Bains de Mer'.
Finally, take the D40 to Noyelles-sur-Mer.
You can join the train from this station, or you can choose to follow the directions to Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, Cayeux-sur-Mer, or Le Crotoy. For all of these stations, permanent signs are in place: follow the signs for the "Chemin de fer touristique".
Don't forget to come at least 30 minutes before the train is due to depart. Now all you have to do is get on board. Have a good trip!
