Alabaster Coast

Running from Etretat in the south west nearly to Dieppe in the north east, the Alabaster Coast in Seine Maritime is so named because of the whiteness of its chalk cliffs, which in places reach 120 metres high.

The cliffs are scarcely unbroken for the whole of their 120 kilometre length, but the few valleys descending to the sea hold pretty little ports such as Yport, Fecamp and Veules les Roses which are well worth a visit for the contrast between their tidy architecture and the huge vertical cliffs surrounding them.
