Visited on Veterans Day 2017 and gained a thorough appreciation of the experience allied troops faced during the invasion of Normandy. This is a must see historical attraction.

This is why you travel to Normandy - to see Omaha Beach and visualize what happened in 1944. This is a really wide and long beachfront. Hard to believe that this tranquil place was a place that thousands died.

Wide expanses of golden sand. It is difficult to believe now, that the same sand was soaked in blood on 6 June 1944. The site of the most Allied casualties during the landings.

Stopped here while on recent cruise and Normandy tour. It’s a must place to see. Very moving and puts a lump in your throat and brings tears to the eyes. It’s quite a large beach and the walk along the promenade was nice. Highly recommend.
This is both moving and sad. It is well worth a visit and it is lovely to take a long walk on the promanade. It is sad to think of all the poss of life that occurred at surch a lovely setting.
We had a very quick stop at Omaha beach during a full day tour of Normandy. The beach is amazing and huge. Very moving to actually be in such a historical place. Beautiful memorial too.
