Etretat, a tiny village on the Alabaster Coast of French Normandy, attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world. Some come here to touch the source of inspiration of the impressionist artist Claude Monet, who created a whole series of paintings in these picturesque places. Others follow in the footsteps of popular travel bloggers with Instagram picnics on flat rocks, as if cut off like a piece of cake. Both those and others are eager to touch the miraculous beauty, the harsh northern nature, the ocean salty wind and the white cliffs carved from alabaster.

How to get there?

Etretat can be reached by public transport from Paris. First by train to Le Havre, then by bus. The one way trip takes about 4 hours. By car - about 3 hours on a high-speed toll road. Etretat is usually associated with the perfect escape from Paris for a day: walk up to the red cheeks in a discordant company of tourists offroadadventurefun.com from all over the world, have lunch and leave for the city. An excellent plan for a brief introduction to Normandy. However, if there is time and opportunity, it is good to stay in Etretat for a couple of days.

Where to stay?

If you are traveling without a car, then it is better to stay in the city itself. There are few hotels, but, as a rule, you can always find a room. In addition, if you don’t mind taking a walk along the rocky coast, then Airbnb always comes to the rescue - houses, apartments, rooms are rented a little further from the city. If you have a car ir a bike offroadadventurefun.com/quad-bike-tours/ at your disposal, you can save on housing and parking by staying in neighboring towns.

What to see and do?

The town itself is the size of a thimble: one street, a square with a city hall, several hotels, restaurants and an embankment. All viewing platforms with replicated photo angles and picnic areas can be bypassed in a couple of hours. They are located to the right and left of Etretat beach. It would seem that a day trip is enough for the eyes.

But in fact, it is impossible to break away from these species. I would like to catch every moment of unity with the elements, to listen to the sound of silence, interrupted only by the roar of waves vainly beating against a white section and the piercing cry of seagulls hovering overhead. I want to endlessly walk along the edge of this piece of wedding cake cut by the ocean, opening up new pictures behind each new turn and shooting another slow motion in my head.

The alabaster coast does not end, the rocks stretch along the water all the way to the city of Le Treport, so if you come here for a few days by car, you can visit other equally beautiful places - Fécamp, Dieppe, Saint-Valery-en-Caux, Veul -Le Rose and others. But it will not be so easy, because Etretat does not want to leave anywhere.

Climbing the rocks, you can easily find a place name as desert dubaidesertsafarifun.ae where there will be no one but you and the seagulls. This is an amazing feeling, for which it is definitely worth coming to Etretat for at least one night and not oversleep the dawn. Similarly, the city is empty at sunset. Vacationers, dispersed by the coming evening and the Atlantic coolness, lazily disperse from the embankment to restaurants to try oysters and mussels, or Normandy cider pancakes.
