We looked at this impressive cliff from the pebble beach down below. You can walk up and around, and you can spend a short or long time here. It was beautiful to be and sit here.

Along the golf course, you climb up to one of the prettiest scenery of Normandy, up the cliffs and 2 or 3 very famous views. Cliffs are 200 mtrs high. Take a wind beaker in any day, this is normandy, dont forget!!

Make sure you don't just take a photo from the beach but do explore all the three cliffs and caves as well! They have an amazing view and you can do it within 2-3 hours!

From Étretat there are two amazing ways to admire these miracles of nature from the top - one to the Falaise d'Aval and the other to the Falaise d'Amont. Both are steep but very worth to be taken, very worth to be climbed. On both...More

A must if you are in Etretat. Beautiful scenary and lovely walks but very weather bound. A bit slippery when wet. Plenty of restaurants near by and you can by local specialities such as calvados.

We climbed Falaise D’Amont, which was on your right side if you face the ocean. There also is a separate set of stairs about 300 meters to your left called Falaise D’Aval. We climbed the stairs of D’Amont and reached the top in only about...More

What a treat to admire these cliffs!!! And with the sunset this was even prettier. The car park on top of the hill is free of charge and one doesn't have to walk much in order to have access to these stunning views. There is...More

I’d park in the center of town right by the beach. That way you’d be close to both cliff sides.

You can walk everywhere in Etretat. It is very small. We parked our car and never moved it the whole weekend. Enjoy!

Really sorry but you will be pushed for time. I would check and see what train connections are through Rouen into Le Havre. That may cut down the travelling time but getting from Le Havre is about an hour or a very expensive... More
