Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Seine-Maritime

Criel-sur-Mer - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Seine-Maritime

The highest cliffs in Europe chalk (106 m on the Mont-Joli Bois) framed majestically Criel pebble beaches and Mesnil-Val, overlooking the fishing grounds: the tides, the fisherman on foot and picked mussels winkles, in currycombs dislodges cakes and rocks, and traps in his "pushers" shrimp and bouquets.

Criel-sur-Mer and the valley of the Yères... Two hours from the Paris region, on the coast of the Alabaster Coast, Criel and its valley offer nature lovers and fishing the exceptional meeting of the coast yet wild and unspoilt green countryside. A paradise for hikers, away from industrial and commercial pollution, the valley of Yres (first category river), offers breathtaking panoramic views in a succession of rural villages and mills.
