This place gives you an understanding of the scale of D-day. Manufacturing a massive harbour, shipping it over to France from England, placing it precisely and then using it to disembark over 2 million men and supplies to feed the allied war machine and eventual defeat of Nazi Germany is a truly epic feat of engineering and man power.

hen you see the remains of the harbour you can see just how big an operation this actually was. It is huge and you can get close to some of the pontoons which makes you realise just how big they are. Amazing.

The site of the Mulberry Harbours, so critical in maintaining the logistic support to the D-Day bridgehead, is deeply moving. Seeing them in their original positions brings home the titanic effort required to break the hold of Nazism in Europe and this should never be forgotten.

To see what was done with this piece of coast to enable the liberation of Europe is amazing. Go and soak up some of the engineering genius.

The attention to detail that the Engineers and Planners of D Day must have had back then is unimaginable by todays standards. To even come up with the idea of constructing your own portable harbour, whilst battling The Enemy on many fronts is genius. A lot is made of the Dambusters bouncing bomb etc, but this project must rank right... More

Reading? You'll never grasp it. Heard about it? Hard to believe your friend is not exaggerating. See the movies in the nearby museums, so you can appreciate the need for the Mulberries, and scale. Then visit this site, and visualize the attitude and effort that led the Allies to literally build TWO fully functional harbors, using pre-manufactured pieces from England.... More

An extraordinary relic of an amazing time in history that turned the tide of WWII. You must also visit the museum on the beach. It is very well laid out with excellent displays and super helpful staff.

Never understood much about this until I went.Blew my mind.Amazing - Americans or not - we wouldn't have won the war without this feat of genius. Designed, built and towed by the British. 2 made, one for us and one for the Americans. Ours was put together properly and it stood the storms and whatever was thrown at it and... More

Arromanches is just a wonderful place to visit. This is where we stayed for our Normandy/Day trip and loved it. This harbor was crucial for the rest of the invasion and incredible history here (and 2 small musueums worth seeing)
