This was our first time visiting, and we found it an extremely moving experience. And once you read the information on the beach, you start to imagine and reflect on what you believe had actually happened.

Omaha beach - You need to just stand there and imagine what it was like. Everyone, and especially the new generation should see the truth of how the allies liberated France and Europe in WWII. I recommend visiting Omaha beach to honor those brave soldiers...More

Reflective place as it’s one of the sites of D-day landings. If visiting around the Normandy region, it’s one of the landing spots consider visiting.

The direct footpath to the beach was closed (locked gates) when we visited. It looked quite steep with a lot of steps anyway to be honest. We walked along the road a little, and then through the dunes and past some bunkers... More

There is a beach at the American Cemetery. I remember some people walking it. We drove to Omaha Beach and then on to Arromanches. Parking is plentiful everywhere.
