From the town of Etretat, steps leading from the south part of the beach takes you to the top of this amazing alabaster cliffs. There is a view point at different levels so not to difficult for most. Several paths wind around taking you to different view points making it very enjoyable.

A walk along the cliffs takes only an hour or so. Nothing too strenuous, but the views back along the coast are breathtaking. A local guide accompanied us, pointing out how the rocks were formed, and various local sea bird species - well worth having a guide if you can

This was the first time in many years of French travel that we have really struggled with parking (0ne can usually find somewhere even in resorts). By midday all car parks in the town were full, but there is no advance indication of this. Combined with tiny lanes and complex traffic lights, this results in 1000s of cars (including ours)... More

What great views and sunsets! Bring good hiking shoes, can't climb in flip flops. Walk along the cliffs, th shore or even the 10th hole of the golf course...

When we reached there all the parking slots were full, but they have provided a ground with 'Free parking". The distance from this parking slot to main beach area is around 2 kms.We spent that evening in the beach.The beach with Pebble stones was... More

The view was spectacular. Must walk to the top. Lots of photo ops. Must walk up a lot of steps to get to the top. Take your time. Town was nice, lots of shops.

It is a nice walk up, good views, but not different from many other places nearby. Just more tourists.
