Boats are moored in the harbor at Le Tréport, on Normandy's Alabaster Coast.

Le Tréport, Normandy Coast

Le Tréport, northernmost town of the Côte d'Albâtre, is quite old yet still fairly small with a population of around 6,500.

Without the sprawl of modern construction around it, the town retains much of the antique architectural character. Without the sprawl of modern construction around it, Le Tréport retains much of the antique architectural character.That said, it has been quite developed for tourism and is a busy resort with lots of partying during the summer. We went there in November and were happy to have missed the crowds. The dramatic cliffs of Normandy’s Côte d'Albâtre, some rising over 120 meters (almost 400 feet), begin here and stretch southward to the Cap de la Hève at Le Havre.

Approaching from the north via the adjacent commune of Ville de Mers-les-Bains, one of the first things we noticed was the popularity of fishing along the quays that ring Le Tréport's harbor. The beach is popular with surfers (both wind and wave), and there’s also lots of amusements and activities for kids and adults on both banks of the Bresle River.
