4.9/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web
Discover the majestic chalk cliffs of Falaise d'Etretat, which inspired artists like Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet, and Claude Monet. These world-renowned cliffs are home to many species of plant and animal life, including seabirds such as herring gulls, arctic fulmars, and peregrine falcons. At low tide, you can walk out onto the beach and see oyster beds dating back to the 17th century. Look for a hole in a cliff known as "trou à l'homme." Sea cabbage and red grass are protected species that grow along the coast. Many caves line the coast, with several that are accessible only by boat during calm weather.

  • When you arrive to the beach and see the landscape you loss your breath with such a wonderful view. The white cliffs are magnificent. 
  • Hotel very well located. Room small but for time as it spends c is. Attention to the shower can quickly be burn. And the breakfast is too expensive for what it has proposed to do so despite the argument of the bio

  • It seems a little difficult at first glance, to climb to the top of these cliffs which shots are exceptional but once made ascension it is won by the panorama that opens up to you
