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

We had a lovely walk along the clifftop path looking out to sea and at the cliff formations. Etretat itself is rather touristy so we were not that impressed but the walks are well worth it. The seagulls are a bit of a nuisance and...More

It took some initial effort to get up to the cliffs, but the views are so worth it! Once you get to the top, you realize that there is not just the arch next to the Pinnacle, there are several arches along the coast. It's...More

Last weekend, my husband and myself were on a trip to Honfleur. That's when we decided to visit the cliffs at Etretat. It was 1 hour drive from Honfluer (60 kms). The drive in itself was beautiful, it takes you through the villages and fields...More

Very nice (and windy) path that you can climb from the beach up to the Arch and even further. Perfect view from above.
