The best place to understand everything that went on in this location in June of 44 is to visit the museum. A very detailed explanation of how this all came together and the men and women who participated.

I have read about the construction of the Mulberry Harbors for many years but even with pictures it was hard to envision the scope and engineering these harbors required. They truly need to be seen to be fully understood and appreciated. They were absolutely crucial to the ability of the allies to funnel supplies and reserves to the front. There... More

This was the harbour used to drop all troops and supplies in the period following D-Day in World War II. The edges of the 'harbour' still show the remains of the equipment used, here the name of this attraction. Great town to stay in while exploring the beaches. 1804

What a feat of engineering. It shows how well it was constructed for it still to be there over 70 years later.

I really think that every American should visit the D-day beaches sometime in their lives! This harbour and its remains are a sobering reminder of the reality of what happened here. It's hard to imagine it because it's in such a sleepy little village. A definite must-see

One only needs to walk along the beach to appreciate the momentous task of setting up the artificial ports (mulberries) during the D-Day landings. You can see these ports in the distance; you can even see them from the battery at Longues-sur-Mer. Walking along the beach is free, but do stop at the nearby Musee du debarquement to appreciate the... More
