This place will take your breath away just in the sacrifice that so many made for us. The level of perfection as it’s all laid out is also incredible. Amazing a must see.

I never thought of reviewing a beach, but upon reading some of the ‘negative reviews’ I felt I should. People complaining it’s not preserved, homes built along the coast, French haven’t represented that we saved them bla bla bla - it’s a beach! As a...More

We were really lucky to visit Omaha with a great weather in January. Sun was shining, no wind an +7 degrees celsius. We were a bit disappointed that there were no german defence facilities but its understandable that everything was destroyed.

Thus is a must see location on a D-Day beach tour, although it's more developed than I'd prefer (this is referring to the beach as located on the map... not the cemetery). The cafe's and gift shops make it harder to imagine the D-Day invasion...More

Omaha Beach is one of the key landing beaches of the D-Day Normandy assault of 1944. Although there aren't that many specific sights there are some memorials and there is a museum dedicated to the D-Day landing.

There are no charges to go to the beach or the cemetery. I there are bike trails but I would suggest that you drive as its a pretty far journey from one end of the beach to the other. Dont think you need reservations... More
