Etretat is really great for fans of cliffs and extreme rock formations. High cliffs can be admired on both sides of the settlement. Moreover, the approach is relatively simple and safe - of course, it's always a good idea to pick decent shoes and keep...More

Absolutely worth the stop. We booked in at the Hotel Falaise which is right in the center of the town. The views are spectacular. You could probably hike up both sides in a day, but we split it up over two days to take in...More

We basically drove one hour just for the view and it was worth it. I took some really nice pictures. We want there in April and be prepared for some strong and cold winds. Not sure if it gets better in summertime.

Etretat is a small seaside town with a shingle beach situated between stunning coastal cliffs. The scenery is spectacular. You can enjoy it from the beachfront in the town, or go on one of the walks along the clifftop.

This is a must stop in visiting Normandy. We came from Giverny through a beautiful way, full of nice villages and green hills and mountains. We didn't plan well enough to allow at least 5-6 hours for Etretat. The clifs are remarkable.

The view is free. If you drive up to view it from the church overlook, parking is free. If you view it from the beach, there is free visitor's parking at the beach as well.
