“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

With the right zoom on Google maps, you can make out the remains of the Mulberry Harbor outside Arromanches-les-Bains. However, you have no clue how huge these individuals structures are until you're there. If you want an up-close-and-personal viewing, go at low tide, where you can walk up and touch them (at least take pictures near them).

“Visit it at different times!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

That is with good weather of course, during the day you can get up close and personal at low tide only. If it is high tide go up to the East of the village towards the 360 museum. Great views and if you walk from the village you don't have to pay for parking at top.
Sunsets are magnificent as the sun sets to the left over the remains of the harbour!

“Amazing views of the remains of the harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We don't call them the Greatest Generation for nothing. The British built a prefab harbor at many secret locations, floated it across the channel, and assembled it under the most trying conditions.

“Impressive site. The remains tell the story”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had a brief visit to this site on a rainy day. The somber mood really told the story of what must have happened here. Saddening, but at the same time inspiring for what our nations have overcome.

“Awe inspiring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Amazing that they are still there more than 60 years later. An astonishing piece of ingenuity and engineering that was such an important link in the invasion plans. I learned all about the Mulberry harbour at school but to see the remains in real life is so extraordinary.
