“White Cliffs amazing view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

After a long drive from Belgium through the jungles and wide lands colored with yellow flowers, we didn't expect to face such amazing cliffs in the coast. It is definitely worth to visit this place. It is close to the Mont-Saint-Michel as well. Try the ice cream over there specially the apricot taste ;) one more notice, don't be surprised if you get back to your car and face tones on Seagull chicken-pee spread on it!!
Anyways, the weather is amazing in April and if you be lucky, the sun weather would make your day unforgettable. Have a blast.

“Beautiful view and memorial to a tragedy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The views are amazing from the top of the cliffs by the chapel but do take a moment to look at the strange white spike! This is a memorial to two brave Frenchmen who died in a mysterious tragedy. Etretat was their last view of France. Nungesser and Coli were two pilots of a tiny plane attempting the first Paris to New York flight.
