We arrived in Etretat, took a ' tram' up to the top to view the chalk cliffs and stone arches. Otherwise the walk would be quite long. What a marvelous view. Well worth the time to visit.

Positive: Nice cliffs and lovely scenic walks along the coast in each direction. Negative: The town has gone all out for commercialism and eliminated most of it's charm. The Mayor should have done more to limit the amount of shops selling tourist tat, and glaring...More

When we first arrived in Etretat, we almost turned around due to the incoming traffic, narrow roads, and almost non-existent parking. Don't leave!! There is overflow parking above the town. A short walk will bring you to the shoreline and the wonderful scenic cliffs (falaise)....More

This is an amazing landscape, totally worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood. It can be very windy over there, and the sea is quite wild. We climbed to the top of one cliff, the paths are well done and quite easy. We...More

The weather was changing from rain to wind. But it does not matter for me. It was one of my big dream to see this place from Monet paintings. I arrived to Étretat from La Havre by bus (takes about hour and just 2 euro)....More

The view is free. If you drive up to view it from the church overlook, parking is free. If you view it from the beach, there is free visitor's parking at the beach as well.
