There are plenty of possibilities to go see the remains of Port Winston or the Mulberry harbour. I think the best spot is walking from Arromanches harbour and up on the cliff. Second and easiest place to stop is the 360 cinema, but there is a parking fee. Otherwise there's a spot to the west of Arromanches where you can... More

From the tops of the hills adjacent to the channel and/or on the beach the remains of the mulberry harbor can be seen showing innovation at its best. The view and the massive magnitude of the project can best be seen from the hillsides for both pictures as well as an overall feel as the port spanned miles along the... More

Time has eroded the landing supports, though some can still be seen and the enormous hull of a landing raft in the middle of the beach which nearly disappears at high tide are incredible feats of engineering. The landing supports were connected by bridges one of which can be seen at the side of the mueseum. The enormity of what... More

This is not to be missed in a visit to Normandy. Enough remains so you can still see, and at low tide walk around these impressive structures. There are also bits of the steel roadway on the landslide, and these are not to be missed. Go to the museum and it is all visible with an excellent detailed model. This... More

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.
