Alabaster coast

Alabaster coast

From Etretat to Dieppe, a distance of about 100 kilometers, the English Channel is lined by cliffs that make up the last headland of the Pays de Caux. They spread across the coast as a stark chalk plateau. Each year, these cliffs recede an average of one or two meters, and it is this rapid dissolving that creates a milky colored water at their base, thus giving them the name of The Alabaster Coast. Nestled in the valleys between these looming cliffs lie ports, seaside resorts, and “valleuses”, narrow, dry valleys that, because of relentless erosion of the coast, seem suspended over the sea.
