You walk through the town of Arromanches to Gold Beach, with the remnants of the Mulberry harbour still visible. I had the privilege to be there on June 6th 2023, exactly 79 years later from the D-Day landings. My father landed on this beach on that very day.
I attended the remembrance service which was held in a square by the beach. Not many veterans in attendance given their age, The square was crowded , the service was very moving, it meant a lot to me and to many others in attendance.
Arromanches is littered with cafes, bar, souvenir & antique shops.

Very interesting to walk through the main square and along the waterfront of this village where the landings at Gold Beach took place during WW2. We were there just after the 75th celebrations of that event, so plenty of visitors still around. Various bits of ordinance and weaponry are mounted for display, and if you look out into the bay you can still see sections of the Mulberry Floating Harbour which the British towed into place immediately after the landings. The Musee du Debarquement is nearby if you want to find out more. Cafes and tourist shops can cater for your food need or souvenirs. Other landing beaches stretch out along this piece of the Normandy coast as well.

As with all of the ww11 landing sites, this is more than just a beach. The historical significance defines it as sacred and as you tread in the footsteps of the brave and the fallen, you can feel the moment but fortunately will never have to endure such horrific hardship, putting this aside, beautiful, absolutely beautiful

I would recommend that all with an interest in world history in general and WWII history in particular pay a visit here. The Allied veterans deserve to be remembered.

Fascinating museum, well re-created models of how the floating harbour was created. Good balance of information and visuals, helps explain and keep the memories of that sacrifice real.

Gold Beach was one of the 5 beaches used by the Allied landings on D-Day. The main task was to build a transition port until the conquest of Cherbozrg, the remains of which still lie in the sea today.
