This was one of the must-sees on our trip and it proved to be a gem. The view from the cliffs is amazing and even our photos of the places look stunning. All in all if you are anywhere near there, you should go and visit. Parking was a bit harder to find, but it was worth walking a bit.

We drove into town, but we should have parked outside of the city center and taken the little train. (It was just too much walking for our children (ages 10-1) to walk to the ocean & then up the cliffs.) Adults & children in our group all enjoyed the walk up to the top of the cliffs for the amazing... More

An iconic setting with stunning views. Incredibly romantic, you can take a walk that takes you to the top of the cliffs. Watch out to not stray off the path as it can be quite dangerous. It is quite a climb, but well worth it for the view. At sunset, head over to the other side where there is a... More

One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The green sea, the rocks, the beach, everything is amazing. I actually had tears on my eyes when I saw the sunset. The town is also amazing, with nice architecture and good restaurants. Going to France and not visiting Etretat is like going to the Louvre and not seeing Monalisa.

This place is absolutely marvelous! You have to climb both cliffs that surround the city to see the wonderful alabaster coast in all its beauty. The climb is easy, but take into account that on the cliffs it is quite windy. All in all, I was really amazed!

We landed at this place randomly while a roadtrip through France. Located in Normandy the beach with its backdrop is simply breathtaking. Loved the place and a must see in my perspective :)

Bring food and drinks - and come early morning. Traffic is huge - prepare to walk a lot so bring comfortable shoes.

A must visit place in Normandy. A bit far from Autoroute but once you arrive there it's magnifique. Plenty of options for car park. The one near to city centre is very good but a bit costly. Why not try another car park nearby on the left after traffic light towards city centre. The rate is 5€ for 10 hours... More

A very nice walk (not too hard) to have the most amazing view on the cliffs. You will see "l'aiguille creuse" from all the directions and point of view!
