I'd do the daytrip which is what we did. Honfleur is a lovely little town although one afternoon and evening is plenty -- but it has lots of restaurants and is lovely. I'd probably add a day to some other destination like Bayeux and spend 2 nights in Honfleur with the day for the trip to Etretat or else use one of the two days you will have to visit some of the other beach towns in the area. You can see our Honfleur and Etretat snapshots in my photo journal in the Normandy section.. Etretat is a favorite artistic subject of the Impressionists and that is how we learned about it. So glad we went.
I think I would do one night in Etretat just to increase the chance of getting some good weather there.
Select the itinerary that you wish and the details will be displayed to the right of the screen.
I am curious. Since you have asked about a taxi, there is an implication that you will be without a car. If so, how will you get to Honfleur, which has no railroad station?
Good luck with your planning.

Oh if you don't have a car, I would definitely spent the night in Etretat. You don't want to rush.
Thank you Mrs. JAS.
We are coming from India so for us that'll be the wrong side of the road. We tried driving once in Cannes and it was a bit of a disaster. :) So now we prefer to take public transport. We will end up taking the bus around these parts, though of course it'll be a lot slower! We are going from Paris to Rouen where we will spend two nights. Rouen to Honfluer, another two nights there. One night in Etretat as suggested by you, and then we take the train from Le Havre to Paris where we spend 6 nights... So excited! Do you think the taxi will be roughly the cost of the bus when we take into account there are three of us, or still way more expensive?
Thank you! Does it rain a lot end June?
No car, so will do that! The hotel has a view of the beach so should be beautiful! :)
If you have questions about weather there are loads of weather websites easily found on google where you can get average temps, rainfall, sunshine and any other data. Check the forecast a day or two before you leave and pack accordingly. There are no rainy seasons in France like there are in India. Temps will be nice but there is no telling whether it will be sunny or rainy while you are here.
