The Alabaster Coast, or Côte d'Albâtre in French, is a stunning 80 mile stretch of the Normandy coastline made of magnificent white chalk cliffs and pebble beaches. Its name is derived from the alabaster white limestone, making the cliffs white in appearance. Beloved by the 19th century Impressionist painters who came here to paint the ever-changing light. The coastline in this region is dotted with charming fishing villages and seaside resorts. Less well known than other parts of the region, this unspoilt coast is the perfect destination to take in the sights, sounds, and culture of this part of Normandy.
