We stopped by one morning on our way out of the area. You can really appreciate the engineering that went into building the temporary harbor. Especially if you arrive with little knowledge of what happened here. It is a great spot to take some nice pictures. It looked like there might be a museum but we were here before anything... More

When the tide is out several sections of the Mulberry harbour can be visited. In the distance you can see the shape of how it was put together. In Aromanches you can see a section of the pontoon bridge that was used to bring the many vehicles ashore. It is amazing just how narrow these are and what a task... More

It is amazing what can be achieved, when with no other choice, we never relised the size of this structure and completely portable, WOW. The whole Normandy WW2 experience is amazing and a must do, seeing this was one of the many highlights.

Some of the pieces of the Mulberry Harbour have drifted in over the decades. Some are still quite far out. Low tide allows you to walk up and touch a section- to better understand the size. In 100 days, 220,000 soldiers, 530,000 tons of supplies and 39,000 vehicles were brought into France from this site.

Wow! After seeing first hand what it took to make these artificial harbors, I am in awe of the success of this mission. The remains of the harbors can be seen at low tide so check those tide charts. You can walk up to these Mullberries and several are scattered along the beach. Some are still anchored out in the... More

These remains of the Mulberry Harbour are an incredible reminder of the war effort. When viewing the small town of Arromanches and the surrounding countryside it is difficult to imagine the sacrifice and scale of human tragedy that took place in this part of the world. A very humbling experience

A piece of history that made it possible to supply the troops landed on D-Day. The remains give a taste of how important this was to the success of the War, very much worth a visit

As said extremely windy so could not inspect them as much as I would have liked but the weather gave a good indication as to how good they must have been back in 1944.
