The third day of our trip through Bretagne and Normandy in the north of france brought us to the white chalk cliffs at Etretat ! These are so impressive !!!
How to find it
Etretat is here, in Normandy:
The small town of Etretat is just in between of two hills, both ending with the white chalk cliffs at Etretat on the seaside. As the number of parking spaces is very limited in town, a huge space has been built on the top of one hill. This is also the perfect spot to start walking around and visiting the cliffs, before going down some hundred stairs to join the beach of Etretat and climbing up again on the other side.
The white chalk cliffs at Etretat are amazing on both sides of the town. But what impressed us most was the fact that there are no barriers, you can walk until the very end of the cliffs !! What a rush !! I as feeling like DiCaprio on the Titanic, the king of the world. It was scarying 😀
Then we went down the stairs to join the beach of Etretat…
And on the other side we climbed up again ! We were so lucky regarding the weather ! We thought it would be foggy and that we wouldn’t see anything of the cliffs ! But look at these pictures !
On the last pic you can see how far you could go on the cliffs ! I have no idea how high is was but the birds were flying in the wind just beside my head ! I had the feeling of flying myself, it was really amazing:)
You can even play golf just beside the cliffs!
The cliffs are so beautiful… we walked around for hours !!
Sometimes you had to walk over a small crête to join the end of the cliff. Not very reasonable 🙂 Don’t do this at home !!!
The white chalk cliffs at Etretat where amazing… they blew us away with their beauty !
Tomorrow I will show you my pics of Honfleur and Deauville:)
