The natural rock arches, bright blue water, and white cliffs makes this walk one of a kind. Follow the white pebble beach to view these three natural arches. The cliff lacks railings so this path is not suitable for small children.

Two options for this hike from the beach of Etretat: a round trip on the peaks or go on the ridges and return to the sea (continue on the crests to go down the valley of Antifer and come back to Etretat by the beaches). Be careful the return is close to the low tide and has steps on the pebbles, passages tunnels, ladders and a small de-escalation ending in small jump. But it's beautiful and fun!

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.
