I doubt there is any place else in the world like the Falaise d'Etretat. I took the walk along the path, starting at the beach and heading up and across La Falaise d'Aval. These white stone cliffs rise like behemoths from the water in shapes...More

If near Etretat, a must. The climbs on other side of the pebbled beach are not too bad. Once to the top you will be rewarded with some truly spectacular views. A photographer's paradise. You will get a workout, but well worth it. Both sides...More

One of the many most beautiful places of France! You can admire the cliffs from the beach or the northern side at the top of the other cliff by the little church. Don't miss the fabulous Gardens there: Jardins d'Etretat -see the reviews.

The three main cliffs are enormous and impressive. You can walk close to the tops, two of the left and one on the right (near to the chapel and gardens). You can walk up, but you need to be in a reasonable good physical shape...More

We also went to the west side and had an amazing time. We took a pic nic with us and sat at the top where we enjoyed lunch and the beautiful view
