It goes without saying that this beach is a must see when in Normandy but I didn't even think it would be as impactful as it was. History comes alive, the battles become real, the souls of the lives lost are felt when you step...More

It is such an awe inspiring place and hard to believe that such a beautiful beach was the scene of such sadness.

I'm a Saving Private Ryan movie fan and standing on this beach after seeing that movie gives you such an overwhelming feeling of sadness. It was a rainy morning but that only added to feeling of sadness that you feel here.

Well, ok, a few words.... Nothing can prepare you for the feeling of standing on that massive, deep beach, especially at low tide, when the Allies came to shore, and had to race across what feels like miles of sand, fully exposed to reach the...More

We visited the cemetery until it closed and then took a hike down to the beach. There are several remnants of the bunkers along the way. The walk is steep in many places and slippery on a rainy day. The beach is huge! Go at...More

If you have seen Finding Private Ryan you will not be able to stand on this beach without being completely overcome. There aren't really words to describe how emotional the experience was.

We took a Half Day Tour with Normandy Tours. The trip to Omaha Beach was enlightened. Our guide, Phillip did a wonderful job of laying the groundwork for the afternoon. It was easy to get there and once parked to walk around and view the...More

This is a must do for the history buffs. We stood on the beach looking across the sand. You can't help but think of the horror that happened there. We had already been to see the coastal defenses and knew what was been thrown at...More

Pointe du Hoc is the place to go first. Prior to your visit go to uTube to watch Reagan’s 1984 speech “the boys of Pointe du Hoc”. Our cemetery also overlooks Omaha Beach. Another must visit. If you want to take sand from... More
