There is not much that you can say about looking at some relics lying on the beach/in the water they are exactly that remain of the Mulberry Harbour though there is a metal "plaque" facing the sea above the harbour showing what it looked at the time/

The site is a must for anyone visiting the area to learn about D Day. I would highly recommend you download an app 'Arromanches 1944' before you go - this allows you to point your device at the harbour and you'll see it as it was then with cool animations of vehicles coming off the port - this brings it...

Excellent place to visit and experience the size, bravery and skill associated with the D Day landings. The museum is very good.

The remains of an artificial harbor called Port Winston are just off Gold Beach. At low tide you can walk almost all the way out to one of the mulberries. Seeing it up close made history come alive for my daughter.

This is what we drove to Arromanches to see and I wasn't disappointed. It's amazing to think that there is so much still left after all this time. Worth a visit and free TIP Very difficult to park on a sunny Sunday

My first visit was in May 2001 when we visited the village of Maizieres where our Uncle Eddie, my father youngest brother, was killed in August 1944. Le 8 mai is called La Fete des Anciens Combattants(Veterans Day). May 8,1945 was the date of the end of WW2 in Europe. Our gracious hosts took us on a tour of the... More

Other than seeing the ruins of the failed Mulberry Harbor from my hotel room, I know its history and now what it looks like. These ruins are of a temporary harbor the allies hoped to use to move supplies into Europe after the D-Day invasion. Unfortunately, shortly after its construction, the harbor was destroyed by a storm and its remains... More

The sheer staggering scale of what remains conveys far better than photographs can the scale of the engineering expertise of allied troops The coast line is stunning and the beach sandy with shallow water The town is settled into the cliff face And A DDay exhibit round each corner
