Omaha beach is a somber and soulful experience not to be missed to honor those brave men who stormed that beach on D Day. The soldiers and troops liberated Normandy and then helped ultimately to end the war. It may bring a tear or two...More

Any American veteran of any era will be moved upon visiting Omaha Beach. You need to just stand there and imagine what it was like. To be 18-19 years old, seasick, going into battle for the 1st time. Scared and not knowing what to expect....More

This visit was a must for my husband as his uncle was in the first wave of paratroopers on D-Day. It is sobering to see and understand the magnitude of the location and of the obstacles faced by Allied forces.

This is one of the top places to visit to envision the liberation of Europe which took place in 1944. Forget the 3D cinema, visit the nearby American War Cemetery instead for a proper historical perspective. Superior Allied technology made these landings a success and...More

I was there in September at low tide, starting at Vierville-sur-Mer, the western end of Omaha beach and then carried on to the east. When you stand on the stand at low tide and look at the dunes you can imagine why it was so...More

DH and I were at Omaha Beach at low tide ... similar to the expanse the landing force had to cover... We just couldn't imagine how all those soldiers could cross the wide sandy beach burdened with personal armor, weapons, and under fire by the...More

Quite a military learning experience. We visited with our currently serving military don and his young family. His knowledge of the D-Day history and that which was available onsite made this a huge event for our family. A must see site.

The memorial on the beach is moving. Other than that this is now a regular beach. It still felt incredible to stand on this historic beach.

We were here at high tide. We wish we could have seen it at low tide. We are told it is even more impressive. Be sure to have a bite to eat at L'Omaha just yards away. It was really good food.

The direct footpath to the beach was closed (locked gates) when we visited. It looked quite steep with a lot of steps anyway to be honest. We walked along the road a little, and then through the dunes and past some bunkers... More

Like the previous answers we travelled by car so it is difficlt to be precise about the distance. The beach is near the cemetery but the main focal point of Omaha Beach is some distance away from the cemetary, probably 10 to... More

There is a beach at the American Cemetery. I remember some people walking it. We drove to Omaha Beach and then on to Arromanches. Parking is plentiful everywhere.
