Sunsets in la Manche: treasures of the west
Clifftops and headlands: sunsets from the heights
In the Cotentin Peninsula, sundown is not to be missed at the Nez de Jobourg. Here, the sun sets over rugged cliffs that are some of the highest in Europe. A bit further on in La Hague, the Bay of Écalgrain is the perfect place to take in a superb sunset from an elevated position.
From the top of the headland in Carteret, there’s a stunning 360 degree panorama. Opposite you, the Channel Islands are silhouetted against the sun, while the endless dunes in Hatainville glow in the evening light. Turn your head to take in the lovely view of the old church ruins.
In the Granville region, there are several spots you can head to for an outstanding sunset. From the Lude valley or the cliffs in Carolles, the horizon takes on a golden hue. Sit back and enjoy the show as the sun slowly sinks over the Cabane Vauban. Look carefully, you might see the silhouette of Mont Saint-Michel in the distance.
