On June 6th, 1944, the Normandy coast was the scene of the allied troops’ maritime landing, who came to fight Nazism and restore peace in Europe.
Jetty Port of Arromanches
The famous beaches of Omaha Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach, Utah Beach and Sword Beach are lined with beautiful memorials.
At the heart of the June 1944 landing beaches, Arromanches owes its fame to the ruins of its artificial harbor. The amazing sight of this unique place is as beautiful as it is haunting.
The military cemeteries honour the thousands of soldiers who died fighting for peace: visit the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer or the German cemetery of La Cambe.
The Caen Memorial, the Museums of Arromanches, Ohama Beach and Bayeux all tell the stories of the D-Day dramatic events and shed more light on the Battle of Normandy.
L’Escapade**** Campsite is located about 40 minutes (30 kilometers) from the best sights of the Landing Beaches .
