One of the most unforgettable things you can see at the northern coast of France. There is a small trail that goes up until the very end of the arch, with an amazing view that simply can not be described!

There is a parking area just before the beach, but chances of finding a good parking spot there starts to shrink after 10am

The sea arches in Etretat are amazingly beautiful. Our visit was inspired by a drink coaster set I have of Monet's paintings. One of them is of the Falaise d'Etretat, so I wanted to see where this beautiful scene was. Etretat is a lovely little town, the view of the arches from the beach are wonderful. To really see and be inspired by the view, however, you must go up the tiny road toward the church on the bluff. It is completely worth it, even if it's rainy and windy like it was when we went up. The view is incomparable and you will not be disappointed.

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!

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 !

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.
