Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Haute-Normandie / Seine-Maritime / Etretat / Falaises d'Etretat
Discover the majestic chalk cliffs of Falaises 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. Make Falaises d'Etretat a centerpiece of your Etretat vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Etretat trip planning site .
