Étretat – Normandie

Étretat is on the Alabaster Coast in Normandy, and is known for its cliffs, including three natural arches and the pointed “needle”.

The beach is composed of stones that have been smoothed by the waves of the English Channel and the town is set just beyond the beach.

These cliffs and the associated resort beach attracted artists including Eugène Boudin, Gustave Courbet and Claude Monet, and were featured prominently in the 1909 Arsène Lupin novel The Hollow Needle by Maurice Leblanc.
