This seafront cliff is located alongside the villages of St Aubin sur Mer and Bernières sur Mer and offers a vast array of fossils of great geological interest. This deposit is an extremely rare section that serves as a reference for the Jurassic period; fossil collection is strictly forbidden. Display case at the St Aubin sur Mer tourist office; guided tours are organised by the association Patrimoine Géologique de Normandie.
