A beautiful coast that's worth a visit. We walked along the beach from one small city to another, and along the coastal road on the way back. Beautiful sites. Bring your walk shoes because it can get a bit rough.

Walking atop the white cliffs near Étretat was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. Summer weekends and holidays are absolutely packed so try to go in the off season or during the week.

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.
