What's Etretat Like?
The dramatic white cliffs near the town are a great place to start exploring your surroundings. A footpath leads you to the top of the cliffs and offers marvelous views of the surrounding area. The trail connects to a longer network of paths allowing you to chose between a quick walk or a more extended hike. Three other rock formations are near the main cliffs and are also worth a look. A small pebble beach is adjacent to the cliffs and is a great place to spend the afternoon, either enjoying the view or taking a leisurely stroll along the promenade. Within the town, several old, medieval houses still stand and several fishing cottages and other, larger houses have stood for centuries. The old market hall can still be visited too, though it's devoted more to shops than produce these days.
