Park around Etretat
In order to anticipate the arrival of many visitors, solutions are put in place
- Bénouville: temporary car parks with signs and footpaths have been installed to go from the center to the Aiguille de Belval.
- La Poterie-Cap-d’Antifer: parking is provided at the level of the town hall and pedestrianized and secure access leads to the lighthouse.
- Les Loges: closure of the Valleuse d’Etigues car park for safety reasons.
- Parking lots and motorhome areas are dedicated and organised, in particular on campsites, in the municipalities of Saint-Jouin-Bruneval, Le Tilleul, Étretat, Les Loges, Yport, Fécamp and Bordeaux-Saint-Clair.
- And because it would be a shame to leave a beautiful day on the coast with a report on the windshield, be careful not to park in awkward places, in particular on certain parts of the edges of departmental roads: road de Criquetot (at the entrance to Étretat) and at the entrance to Bénouville (D11).
