A charming little French village with a old and magnificient cathedral. Don't miss eating crepes in one of the many nice cafes around the old city center.

A great B&B close to the D-Day beaches. Great breakfast, excellent English spoken and a few minutes away from the charming village of Grandcamp-Maisy. It's an old farm and offers a magnificient experience and value for money.
La Maree is in many ways a great restaurant. It's located in the small village of Grandcamp-Maisy in the harbor. Food is great, especially the fish dishes. It's also mentioned in the Michelin guide. It's quite a small and relaxed restaurant still, very much like the village it is located in. Prices are cheap too. It's definitely a place not to miss if you want to try a real French restaurant away from the tourist masses.

Some bunkers, a lot of shell craters and cool cliffs. One of the best places on the D-Day beaches but still not very inspiring. If you're around here and want to see the beaches then don't miss Point du Hoc.
juha from Finland wrote about Omaha beach 4 years, 11 months ago
I was somewhat disappointed with all of the D-Day beaches. I had high expectations for sure but still it was quite boring to see the same stuff everywhere: old uniforms, weapons etc. in different small museums. Nothing new in any of those. The most interesting place was the US military cemetary close to Omaha beach with its visitor center and exhibition. That's definitely not to be missed. Otherwise if you've read about the invasion and want to find something more you'll be disappointed in case you've been a few military museums before.

Definitely THE place in Normandy when it comes to the D-Day beaches. Especially the free exhibition in the visitor center beats all the museums (that are not free) pants down.

I didn't visit this but it's the only place in Normandy where the guns are still in place in the battery. Similar bunkers probably to Point du Hoc but with guns in place. Should have gone there, probably...

Don't bother going in and paying the entrance fee. Just more uniforms and guns. Go to the visitor center at Omaha beach US military cemetary instead. It's free and better.

Just barely worth the money it costs to enter. They have a model of the Mulberries and quite a lot of info on them which is nice. Otherwise still more guns, uniforms and other stuff like that. You can see the Mulberries in front of the museum in the harbor which is the coolest thing.
One of the great engineering achievements of World War II. Some of the pontoons still defy the waves after 60 years which is quite amazing. The best thing in Arromanches.
juha from Finland wrote about Pegasus bridge 4 years, 11 months ago
After reading about the events of the Pegasus Bridge it's a bit of a disappointment in real life. It's very small and not even the original bridge, which is located in the museum next to the bridge site. Again if you've read about the events the museum is rather unuseful. You can also see the first building liberated in France on the other side of the bridge. Still it's worth the visit if you're in the area.
