Hiking around Fécamp

A hike around Fécamp to discover the town and the surrounding cliffs.

An easy hike around Fécamp lasting 2-3 hours, the only drawback is that it runs along the cliffs and that it is normally forbidden to walk along the cliffs because of landslides. The sign indicates that "the municipality is not responsible in case of accident". At low tide, you can still stay away from the cliffs and enjoy the magnificent spectacle they offer. Otherwise the rest of the hike is not difficult, it goes up a bit but the path is easy and tarred. The return to Fécamp is well indicated. You can also continue to Yport or even further at the crossroads.

Cette randonnée est très dangereuse car la falaise s’éboule régulièrement. Ce matin un pan de 30 mètres est tombé à Grainval. Déconseillé.

We can start the hike at the beach of Fécamp. For information the picture represented on the photo is Crinolines sur la plage - Jules Noël - 1871

Well, the problem is simple, the hike goes along the cliff to reach the beach of Grainval and it is normally forbidden to walk at the foot of the cliffs because of the rockslides.

It is still interesting to see the cliffs a little closer.

It is clear that from time to time parts of the cliffs collapse. At low tide you can stay away from the cliffs.

Magnificent pebble beach with this so characteristic noise of the pebbles which clash the ones the others. In the distance we see Fécamp that we have just left.

We can leave the beach by this path a little steep but well maintained. We continue straight to take again the path of hike.

It is not the most beautiful beach but it is embedded between two cliffs which gives it a lot of charm. Considering the difficulty to reach the beach it is not very frequented.

After the ascent of the beach, we arrive at a crossroads where signs indicate the directions, just follow the direction Fécamp.

The return is rather fast, it is done while going along the road.

It's time to eat after this little walk. The prices in Fécamp are reasonable and are not those of Deauville.
