Noyelles-sur-Mer is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.



Noyelles-sur-Mer is situated on the coast, facing the English Channel, on the D11 and D40 junction, some 13 kilometres (8 mi) northwest of Abbeville.


Noyelles has a station on the Boulogne - Amiens line. There is also a heritage railway at Noyelles, the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme, which formed part of the Réseau des Bains de Mer system. A dual gauge line goes to Saint-Valery-sur-Somme, and a metre gauge line continues on to Cayeux. Another metre gauge line goes to Le Crotoy. A further metre gauge line, now closed, went to Forest-l'Abbaye, where it connected with the line between Abbeville and Dompierre-sur-Authie.
