The Normandy coastline

what is it?

Normandy is formed with 600 kilometers of coastline, including 140 kilometers for La Côte d’Albâtre that stretch from Le Tréport to Le Havre in the department of Seine-Maritime.

On the side of the Côte d’Albâtre, you will find a totally different landscape from that of Calvados: pebble beaches (ouh la the little feet), a wild nature and vertiginous cliffsfacing the sea, plunging into the waters withchanging colors inspiring painters and poets.

Touring this multifaceted coastline will offer you rich natural discoveries and sumptuous landscapes to admire.

So stop for a moment, breathe in the smell of the tide, listen to the cry of the gulls and travel between land and sea…
