Utah Beach has easy access to the actual beach. When the tide is out, the beach is expansive. There are memorials and a museum and a few less visitors. It's about an hour from Omaha Beach, but worth going to help understand what occurred here in 1944. Do visit the museum if you have time. Lots of good information and short films.

Utah Beach is such a great site. It’s a memorial site but also has a museum, restaurant that once housed Germans during WWII but also the allies after. You can reflect, learn, and honour allied forces but also picnic and swim. You could really spend the whole day here! Parking and access to the beach is free.

Once again, just like Omaha Beach, this is something everyone should see. Buy your sand bottle before going to the beach. Great gift shop. The monuments are not on the beach. Be sure to look around. It does not take as much time as Omaha. Humbling experience.

To finally get to see Utah Beach was amazing. To know what happened here 76 years ago and the price that was paid on this spot to secure Europe from the Axis powers is hard to put into words.

It is hard to believe all the planning that went into the D-Day landings but visiting the sites helps paint the picture of what it must have been like. The grounds have been well maintained and Utah Beach is one of the many stops in Normandy worth visiting.

Utah beach is the furthest West of the five allied landing beaches. Also, it is the least commercial and encroached (yet) by urban sprawl. It is also the most interesting (Together with Gold beach).
The beach is easier to access and has compacted sand so very easy to walk on and get a perspective of where the troops landed. There is an excellent museum which is not to busy and well worth spending some time there.
There is one excellent restaurant close to the museum, if you are there on a not busy day it easy to get a seat, if there are tour buses there then it can fill quite quickly.

We walked the beach for a short time while in the area. This place is amazing and has so much history. Parking is rare.

The beach is very nice and worth a visit.
Bring your swimming trunks.

Around the beach you find plenty of D-day tourist traps.

We would come again for the beach.

This is a must see as well as Omaha Beach when in Normandy. The memorials that have been erected are amazing and the very heart and souls of those that lost their lives there can be felt.

Amazing place to think what it stood for and what took place all those years ago. It’s a must to truly understand and feel the connection. The beach is clean and easy access with a museum to look round full of interesting facts.
