To reach this part (from the seaside), is easier compared to the other side (Falaise d'Etretat), as there are some very convenient steps. It took about 10 minutes to reach the top and we were happy with the views and explanations given on the monument.

We were visiting the area with other seniors touring France on a river cruise. This was one of our stops and it was just beautiful. We had an opportunity to take great pictures of this wonderful memorial. Very simple but very moving.

If it was placed elsewhere, most probably the monument would not get 5 stars, but its location and the view from there is definitely stunning. Even if it is dedicated to the first attempted, but unsuccessful, direct flight over the ocean, it is good to...More

Monument itself is not that interesting,but view from the cliff is beautiful! Accesible both on foot (from beach) and by car (narrow street, but free parking near the monument available)

Easy to miss, this Memorial to Nungesser and Colin is a memory of their attempt to the Atlantic. The monument has a history of his own. Colin and Nungesser attempted crossing the Atlantic a few days before Lindbergh, and whose plane were last seen from...More
