Just a short hop away from the seaside resorts of Villers-sur-Mer and Houlgate, these unusual dark cliffs will make quite the impact.

Over 100m high and covering a distance of 4.5km between Villers-sur-Mer and Houlgate, these unique cliff­s stand out with their dramatic dark rock faces and stark natural beauty. This site, constantly eroded by the tide, is famous for its Jurassic and Cretaceous fauna. Many fossil remains have also been found here, including the remains of dinosaurs!

The colour of the cliffs leaves a lasting impression
