The D-Day beaches
Just an hour's drive from the campsite, the Utah, Omaha, Sword and Juno Beaches take you back to the middle of the 20th century. A trip to the D-Day beaches is an open invitation to reflect on that dramatic time, through the visitor trails, museums and commemorative monuments. The village of Sainte Mère l'Eglise lies only 40 km away.
Explore the Pointe du Hoc at Cricqueville-en-Bessin, a narrow Normandy headland with cliffs towering 25 to 30 metres above the waves. An exceptional site where the concrete bunkers remain almost intact and its crater-riddled grass bears witness to the ferocity of the battle. Or take a moment to enjoy its pebble beach, perfect for a walk with family or friends.
