Overview

Simply Beautiful!
 
Omaha Beach

If the Normandy landings nearly failed anywhere, it was certainly on Omaha Beach at Colleville-sur-Mer. The heavy losses suffered by American troops on D-Day earned it the name of "Bloody Omaha".

Omaha Beach is one of the five Landing beaches. The future of France and Europe was at stake here on 6th June 1944. When you visit this beach which extends, for 8 Km. over Vierville-sur-Mer, Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer and Colleville-sur-Mer, you will obtain a clearer idea of the progress of the battles. The Bessin coastline is composed of steep chalk cliffs, which rise one hundred feet or so above the sea.

On the beach of Omaha are still the remains of the German fortifications. There are also monuments to commemorate the battle.
