You have to give at least 3 hours to visite this place. In the begin of the path you can find the time table , if you want to walk at the beach - please follow this table, because it's can be dangerous.

Imagining what happened here during the WWII is very impressive. There are still some remains of german bunkers. You will have to walk quite a lot, and there is a difference of height. Be prepared for that! If you manage to conquer this hill/mountain, you...More

You will fall in love with this place, very nature and romantic place, the formation of the Etretat WOW. You can walk from top to bottom as there are many restaurants there.

This was not a climb for seniors even if in good physical shape. The path is uneven, rocks can be slippery and it is a steep climb. I was only able to get up halfways but it was worth it. I wish I could have...More

Definitely a hike worth the view. We hesitated climbing up, but were glad we did once we were up there. It's not strenuous, nor long, it just winds you but it's a winding thats well worth the view, without a doubt.

A must do. Wear walking shoes and bring a camera. Pathways not flat and steep climb. Views amazing. Recommended.

It takes a little effort (walk uphill) but the view is amazing. I would recommend doing it when the weather is nice, the rocks might get slippery if it rains.

One of the 'most do' things to do in Normandy if you like to walk. The downside is that you have the climb up windy cliff paths first but worth it for the stunning views of the cliffs, arches and rock formations
