Can't even describe the feelings of site, the expanse and the enormity of the site. Totally a must see and plan on a hike because you need to see from the beach but also from the top.

A touching experience on a serene February afternoon, looking down the windswept cliffs at the distant ocean. An understated contrast to the horror here on June 6, 1944, when Allied troops invaded a 60-mile length of beaches in Operation Overlord. A must-see beach, actually a must-visit tribute to all the D-Day beaches across Normandy, enjoying the endless tidal landscape, feeling... More

It's hard to describe the feeling when walking over this historic ground. Against impossible odds so many lost their lives fighting for freedom for the world.

The beach area is a beautiful and peaceful place which was brought about by bloody battles. As you visit the beaches, climb the cliff, explore the bunkers and walk the streets ponder what all took place in June of 1944.

The bravery and sacrifice of the men on D-Day make this truly hallowed ground. The modern day beauty and peace of the beach stand in stark contrast to the violence and brutality of that day.

To me, this is the most historic place one can see. Every time I've seen the landing on firm or in a documentary, I always wondered about the feel of the place. What's underrated is the sheer beauty of the beach. Take your time, get the feel of the monuments, imagine the soldier's struggling up the beach, fighting for our... More

Such a beautiful place today, and a place of such terrible slaughter on D-Day. I arranged my own tour of the Normandy landing beaches and other places of that part of history. I have so much that I could review, all of the beaches, Point Du Hoc, and much more. I think that this type of tour should be on... More

So many sites to see along Omaha Beach. From the beach itself to the American Memorial Cemetery and Visitor Center, to the many gun placements spread throughout the region. Easily spend a few days exploring and discovering the reasons this has such significance for Americans and how the invasion shapes our existence today.

We visited Omaha Beach as part of a tour and I was very moved by the memorial here to the US soldiers who landed on D Day in WWII.
