Yport Things to Do

  • Falaises d'Yport.

    Sur la Côte d'Albâtre les falaises situées au nord-est d'une plage sont appelées "falaises d'amont" et celles situées au sud-ouest "falaises d'aval" alors que amont signifie normalement la partie d'une rivière située près de la source et aval celle située près de l'embouchure.A Yport la falaise d'amont forme une longue bande de falaises d'environ 5...

  • Cabestans électriques.

    Dans les années 1960 les cabestans furent remplacés par des treuils électriques cachés sous la caisse en bois que montre ma photo. Le câble de halage passe par un système de poulies réparties sur la largeur de la zone d'échouage de telle sorte que chaque embarcation est tirée à sa place.Quoique électrique le halage d'une barque n'est pas si simple....

  • Les cabestans d'Yport.

    Yport a su garder pour le plaisir de ceux qui comme moi s'intéressent aux choses de la mer plusieurs vestiges des engins, cabestans, utilisés pour tirer les barques de pêche au sec sur la partie haute des galets.Des cabestans anciens sont toujours en place (photo 1). Il leur manque cependant les grandes barres de bois que l'on appelle "vireuses"....

  • "Doris" & "Plates".

    Je ne sais pas si les "doris" sont encore utilisées pour la pêche côtière à Yport ou si elles ont été remplacées par les "plates" qui avec leur tableau très large permettent la fixation d'un moteur.Quand je détaille mes photos il me semble voir les deux types de barques à fond plat hissées sur les galets de la plage d'Yport. Les doris, barques à...

  • Stay a while on the beach

    Beach and sea activities are - of course - the main activities in Yport. The beach is created by rounded stones and the surf is not that intens (when hard winds are not make them stronger). Swimming is great, but for children the seabed is rather quickly going deep.

  • Yport along the "Cote d'Albatre"

    The French coast is roughly running from Fécamp until Le Havre. Cote d'Albatre means the Alabaster Coast and one can see why, when one drives along the horizontal rising white cliffs that sometimes have reached the stranged forms, by the sea's constant erosive processes. Yport offers the visitor a wonderful place from where footpaths lead along and...

  • Eglise de Yport

    This is the nice church of Yport built in the 19th century. I'm sorry but it was closed when I was there.

  • Painters on the beach

    The thing that has mostly struck me of this city has been to see many painters paint on the beach. It seems me to return back to the epoch of Monet, where this zone was one of the most famous of the whole France.

  • The Beach and the cliffs

    The small town of Yport has got a nice beach between two cliffs. During the weekend the beach is very overcrowed, but if you want to preciate it I suggest to go there during the weekdays.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The town is reached by the D211. The road continues through the town to reach the pebble beach, about 300 m large, between the cliffs.
    There is a free parking on the left side of the beach for about 100 cars.
    Begin May there was room enough but I would not expect things to be as quiet on WE and vacation periods.

Yport Off The Beaten Path

  • Vaucottes.

    A deux Km à l'ouest d'Yport par la D211 on aboutit à une petite plage de galets (200 m de large) (photo 1) non aménagée et peu connue sauf des résidents. Une petit parking est aménagé à 300 m de la plage qu'on atteint à pied par une petite route typique qui suit le vallon arboré, une "valleuse" (photo 2) , bordée de quelques villas du siècle passé....
