Sea Cliffs, Etretat, France

Sea Cliffs, Etretat, France

Etretat is famous for its three natural arches and white chalk cliffs that tower high over the Atlantic Ocean. These natural wonders are freely accessible, as is the white pebble beach. Claude Monet and other Impressionists famously painted the arches and cliffs in the nineteenth century. An Arsène Lupin story was based here while Guy du Maupassant spent most of this childhood in the town.

The old town center is fairly pretty too making Etretat a popular day-trip destination from other towns and sights in Normandy.
