An Engineering Marvel

Although not much remains, after one of the harbours being destroyed by storm, the sheer scale of their construction to this day remains awe inspiring.

What an amazing engineering feat and what a huge boost to morale this must have been to the British to have created this and seen its operation. I would say that it is impossible not to be impressed by this.

Visit Arromanches at the D-Day anniversary. It's a party. War vehicles driven all the way from Britain, enthusiast people wearing the companies uniforms. You can even talk to veterans.

The view of this engineering feet, is incredible, The museum that is on the quay is very good and the 360 cinema on top of the cliff is humbling. The Museum opens in Feb, visit in March April, more of the beach and town should be available.

If you know anything about D-Day, it is sad and overwhelming to stand here and envision the events of that day.

Come here to see the remains of the harbor and not to visit the museum near the beach. You can drive up to the 360 movie theater to get some good views of the harbor. It looks like you can likely get views from the other side, but we did not go there. You do have to pay for parking... More

Was here shortly after D-Day anniversary and it was amazing to see the gathering there to honor the achievements of the Royal Engineers, Royal Army/Navy and Marines. Wreaths were placed on all the monuments; several elderly soldiers were at the site and flowers spelling "peace" were placed in the sand on the beach. The tide was out so you could... More

The movie 'The Longest Day' gives a reasonable account of what happened on D-day 70 years ago, but visiting the harbor and seeing first hand was amazing especially when you can see so much of the artificial harbor that was built so long ago. It is a must.

My wife and I visited the Mulberry Harbor in Arromanches-les-Bains with a group tour of the Normandy area. We both wish we’d known a lot more about the Mulberry Harbor before we went, as our appreciation for the extraordinary accomplishment of its creation would have enhanced our experience tremendously. As other reviewers have mentioned, the tide was out when we... More
