Baie de Seine
(Redirected from Bay of the Seine)
The Baie de Seine (Bay of the Seine River) is a bay in northern France. It is a wide, rectangular inlet of the English Channel, approximately 100 km (east-west) by 45 km, bounded in the west by the Cotentin Peninsula, in the south by the Normandy coast and in the east by the estuary of the river Seine at Le Havre. The coast alternates between sandy beaches and rocky promontories and, in general, it offers little shelter for shipping. At the western end of the bay are the Îles Saint-Marcouf.
