- Le Havre (pop. 255 000) is usually thought of as a place to get on or off a ship. There is a bit more to this major seaport however.
The Granville Abbey is worth a visit and the view from St. Adresse Fort is great. The Seine estuary is an impressive sight as well.
If you want to spend some more time you should consider a visit to the Ocean Dock, the Town Hall or the fine-arts museum, which has a good collection of paintings including a good 16th-century collection.
A stroll down Avenue Foch is pleasant especially on a lazy summer afternoon.
If you want to make a day trip, at a distance of only 30 km of Le Havre you will find Etretat with its superlative and often-photographed cliffs.
Nearly 2 000 feet of the mile-long beach belong to the Le Havre commune. The yachting harbour is freely accessible 24 hours a day and has a total of 1 300 mooring spaces. Le Havre is the nearest deep water yachting harbour to Paris. The high chalk cliffs of Côte d'Albâtre stretch from the Seine estuary to the Somme estuary.
