We drove to the top of the cliffs and parked in the lot by the church. The wind was blowing so hard that I was concerned about my mother (who is 84 and weighs just 125) would get blown off the cliffs! I had her...More

Lucky to be in Étretat on a sunny crisp winter day. No tourists and cliff walk to ourselves. Low winter light made cliffs glow with green. Imagine it would be unpleasant at peak tourism season or in the rain.

The cliffs of Etretat are probably the most spectacular in Europe. The sea water sculptured in the limestone rocks fantastic shapes.. The beach is covered by pebbles which have the size of a goose's egg. The views are incredible!

I doubt there is any place else in the world like the Falaise d'Etretat. I took the walk along the path, starting at the beach and heading up and across La Falaise d'Aval. These white stone cliffs rise like behemoths from the water in shapes...More

We also went to the west side and had an amazing time. We took a pic nic with us and sat at the top where we enjoyed lunch and the beautiful view

I’d park in the center of town right by the beach. That way you’d be close to both cliff sides.

You can walk everywhere in Etretat. It is very small. We parked our car and never moved it the whole weekend. Enjoy!
