Part 1 of a great adventure

This was the first step in our d-day excision and it is amazing! This is where the allies made a Barbour to get our troops the supplies they need!

Visited here on our way home to UK. Our schedule meant we were here at high tide but still plenty of the remaining harbour structure to see. We arrived just as an English language film was running describing the history- absolutely fascinating for me as someone having no previous knowledge of this. The museum itself was rather disappointing and much... More

One feature that allowed the Allies to be as successful as they were was the terrific planning, cooperation and engineering. It is mind boggling to realize that an artificial harbor with all it entailed was assembled in such a short time. Walk the beach and touch history.

Arromanches is a sleepy village in March when we visited but worth the trip. The view is amazing and the coast line impressive. Seeing the remains of the mulberry harbour is very impressive if you realise how many troops off boarded here in such a short period.

If you are in Normandy doing a trip around the famous landing beaches, Arromanches will be on the agenda. There is a very good museum, and the history of the harbour is quite incredible.

Humbling and awe inspiring. I wish we could have seen it at low tide. You get a totally new perspective on what an undertaking D-day was. I hope to return.

Not much to see. Mainly for those familiar with D-Day history. Mulberry Harbor was critical to supplying allied forces advancing inland from D-Day beaches.

We stopped here on our return journey from southern Brittany to Calais. Parking can be a little difficult as it is a small resort, but worth it if you can make the effort, as the welcome is very warm, particularly to British and Americans. The history of what took place here during the D-day landings is well presented. This was... More

Amazing to see the mulberries right out in the water. Beach is open and when the tides are low you can walk right out to some.
