Normandy featured so much in the World Wars and these landing beaches within about 10km of each other in are moving for the whole family
Closest beach to Les Fieffes. As well as sense of history the stretch of beach by Colleville is lovely for a swim on a hot day.
No D-day trip would be complete without a visit to the haunting Omaha Beach. Best earlier and later in the day when the coach parties have gone and you get to appreciate even more the scale of the endeavour and the sacrifices made on that fateful day.
There are many D Day beaches and tours all within just over an hours drive. Depending on when you are here will depend on events being held. Please check online for details. Museums often charge entry fees.

“This lovely place in Grandcamp is a real treat. It’s good for any group but particularly good value in terms of kids set menu. Food is consistently excellent and service is also very accommodating. You need to book in advance, it’s very popular. ”

“The American Military Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer is the most famous war cemetery in Normandy. The long lines of white marble Latin crosses and stars of David symbolise the sacrifices that the Allied nations - and here in particular the United States of America - have made for our freedom. The cemetery is an exceptional site, not in the least because of its impressive location dominating Omaha Beach, where the Americans suffered their worst losses. It take around 45 minutes to drive to the American Cemetery from La Forge and is well worth a visit.”
