Etretat

Etretat ©
Etretat is a small coastal village on the Alabaster Coast in Normandy.
Kick off your visit on the 13th (Mon): take in the dramatic natural features at Porte d’Aval, take some stellar pictures from Falaises d'Etretat, and then kick back and relax at Plage-Baignade Yport.

Plan my Etretat trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Etretat is an approximately 12-hour combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Tel Aviv to Etretat. Expect a bit cooler weather when traveling from Tel Aviv in August: highs in Etretat hover around 23°C, while lows dip to 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) so you can go by car to Falaise.

In August 1944, two German armies were encircled and destroyed by the British 2nd Army in their attempt to breakout of the "Falaise pocket" (also known as the "Falaise gap").
