Our opinion on the Antifer Beach

Adresse of the Antifer Beach : Rue d'Antifer 76790 Le Tilleul

Antifer Beach or the Tilleul Beach is west of Etretat. It straddles the towns of Tilleul and Poterie-cap-d’Antifer. Surrounded by the cliffs of Etretat, the beach offers a beautiful stretch of shingle with some sand banks which are exposed at low tide. The environment is beautiful with views of the points of the Courtine (on the right) and the Fourquet on the left. It is on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Haute-Normandie.

Access is only by foot. In the centre of Tilleul, take the street to the sea from the D940 (a sign for the beach). At the junction, turn left and there is a car park on the left. From there, take the street of Antifer (accessible only on foot) then go down on the beach via the path (difficult passage - steep). It takes 25 minutes.

Note that there is an area where naturism is practiced between Cap d’Antifer and Fourquet Point (beware, it is tolerated by also prohibited by a bylaw). Access is by the main beach by taking the left (access only at low tide). There is a second access near the lighthouse of Antifer (near the area of La Place). You must follow the path to the right of the lighthouse and then down the stairs.

Dogs on a leash are allowed on this Tilleul Beach.
