Okay, some move on to the coast of Bretagne and others want to add sunshine and warm temperatures to add to their pleasure along the sea. For me however the Normandian coast is of great beauty. In the North you find the white cliffs (Etretat, Yport), further South-West the granite rocks that form a strong natural defence to the constant beating of the Atlantic waves. The extreme tidal differences add to the spectacular changing of the coastal landscape of Normandie. one moment the waves strike hard on the rocks along the shore, another moment the seawater is hardly visible in the far distance behind a wide sandy beach. Differences between high and low tide can exceed over 14 meters (!), something that cannot be met in Bretagne or along the mass touristic beaches around the mediterranean sea.
