A beautiful coast that's worth a visit. We walked along the beach from one small city to another, and along the coastal road on the way back. Beautiful sites. Bring your walk shoes because it can get a bit rough.

Walking atop the white cliffs near Étretat was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Summer weekends and holidays are absolutely packed so try to go in the off season or during the week.

You have to give at least 3 hours to visite this place. In the begin of the path you can find the time table , if you want to walk at the beach - please follow this table, because it's can be dangerous.

Imagining what happened here during the WWII is very impressive. There are still some remains of german bunkers. You will have to walk quite a lot, and there is a difference of height. Be prepared for that! If you manage to conquer this hill/mountain, you...More

You will fall in love with this place, very nature and romantic place, the formation of the Etretat WOW. You can walk from top to bottom as there are many restaurants there.

This was not a climb for seniors even if in good physical shape. The path is uneven, rocks can be slippery and it is a steep climb. I was only able to get up halfways but it was worth it. I wish I could have...More

Definitely a hike worth the view. We hesitated climbing up, but were glad we did once we were up there. It's not strenuous, nor long, it just winds you but it's a winding thats well worth the view, without a doubt.

A must do. Wear walking shoes and bring a camera. Pathways not flat and steep climb. Views amazing. Recommended.
