The Black Cow Cliffs are located between Houlgate and Villers-sur-Mer. Their name comes from a sailors’ song. When seen from the sea, these these huge algae-covered blocks of chalk on the beach are said to ressemble a herd of cows grazing at the foot of the cliff.
The great palaeontological and geological wealth has rendered this site of major interest. Another remarkable feature of the cliff is its original ‘bad-land’ morphology, across a succession of ravines and rocky spurs.
The Villers-sur-Mer Tourist Office organises outings throughout the year, with departures from the beach, to offer visitors an opportunity to discover these exceptional cliffs.
