Les arches naturelles, les eaux bleu vif et les falaises blanches font de cette promenade un lieu unique. Suivez la plage de galets blancs pour admirer ces trois arches naturelles. La falaise manque de balustrades, ce chemin n'est donc pas adapté aux jeunes enfants.

Unreal walk right on the chalk white cliffs of Etretat. You can look down onto the beaches and sea stacks. I also did the walk north up the coastline, which was equally nice.

Deux options pour cette randonnée au départ de la plage d'Etretat : un aller et retour sur les crêtes ou l'aller sur les crêtes et le retour en bord de mer (continuer sur les crêtes pour descendre par la valleuse d'Antifer et revenir vers Etretat par les plages). Attention le retour est à faire proche de la marée basse et comporte des marches sur les galets, des passages de tunnels, échelles et une petite désescalade finissant en petit saut. Mais c'est magnifique et ludique !

Amazing view! we went from Étretat as this route is described on the cliff top (easy and beautiful trail) and then a bit further to get down by the coast. Then took the coast route back. Absolutely amazing hike that goes over cliffs and through tunnels - some climbing skills are needed. But be extremely aware of the tide. The tunnels are closed by the tide and can close of your route! This only makes the route available during specific hours each day. If possible - go by sunset, which is an amazing light.

Wow! Literally an expressionist view. The high cliffs offer both beautiful views of the ocean and weather worn rock formations, a pretty steady wind, so don’t go to close to the edge. Easy hike and just a wonderful place to examine.
