Beautiful place in all seasons. Visit the coast at different times during the day. Find out the tide timetable and enjoy the sight changing. Always take your wellies and raincoat, but don't let the rain stop you from visiting.

Be prepared with your camera. Some of the best natural cliffs I've ever seen. I never get tired of visiting the cliffs and taking pics. One of the hidden gems along the Normandy coast.

I know it is not the best idea to visit this place on the winter, but the sunset what we saw just made us forget about the weather. It worth the effort to sit there for almost one hour on the cliff, listening to the wind, to the birds and the sea, while waiting for the sun to get melt... More

If you get a chance to venture out here, do so but make sure you are able to take in the sunset!! It is just spectacular. I would not hesitate to make another trip out here to hike the cliffs. You can go up both sides (by the church and golf course). The hike up by the church is rather... More

Wonderful walk along the cliff, from Etretat on one side or the other. the view on the north sea is breathtaking. a good way to take a deep breath, at any season of the year. if you want to see an amazing beach under the cliff, try la plage des loges, it's around 4 to 5 km north from Etretat,...

Etretat is the one of the most amazing places of Normandy. If you climb up the cliffs you can see an awsome panorama.

This place was recommended by a friend, when planning our trip through France. It was a detour from our planned route that was well worth it. The cliffs are just breathtaking. There are several shapes carved into the cliffs. A very picturesque site. The hike up the hills is actually not as daunting as it seems, and is well worth... More

Never such a magnifique view in my life. I felt so free, so alive to visit and climbed in the cliff. If you like to walk this is the best place to see the nature by walking and climbing the hills. And at the end you find the beautiful blue ocean surrounding the cliff. Just an experience hard to forget.

Didn't know the place but was definitely worth the detour. Lovely cliffs, nice place for a walk. Even better if the weather is nice. Take the time to enjoy it...
