Reviewed December 25, 2012

Reagrdless the weather, worth the visit. Go up the cliff and you won't regret! Make sure you have decent photo camera! No iphone is capable to transfer colorful view!

“Just amazing !”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

This ws a great experience to do. Unfortunately the weather was not nice but we could imagine it with blue sky. The cliffs are amazing. We recommend to go their with low tide so that you can walk under the arch. But it is also amazing with high tide as the water goes just next to the cliffs. In this case you can walk up to the top of the cliffs. The view up there is unique !

“Attractive”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Although a pebble beach, there are tree gorgeous arches in Etretat, two of them can be seen from the beach. We came towards 7:00 P.M. and the sun graced both arches, making them more attractive than ever! The sea was a bit wild and it rolled its waves like thunder. The cliffs themselves were quite imposing. On the top of one of them was a picturesque church. The town itself had character, but traffic was bad.

“Wonderful views”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Once you arrived in Etretat village it was very easy to get to the cliffs (falaises) and enjoy the wonderful views. The village of Etretat suffered from touristic overload though. Easy to take the bus from Le Havre (only 2 euros per adult).

“Beautiful site”

Walking up the cliffs to appreciate the beauty of the scenery - we were lucky with the weather that we could sit and picnic and watch the boats
