Seeing the sand cliff...
Seeing the sand cliff that the rangers had to scale, I can't even imagine how in the world they were able to do that. Seeing the craters in the ground from the shelling was surreal.

Utah & Omaha Beaches D-Day Group Tour from Bayeux
We went in middle of May. Bring a warm jacket because it’s windy and cold in the morning off the beach. You see and learn a lot on this tour. Jordan was an excellent guide. We were a group of 18 and the Mercedes van was plenty big enough for us all. Highlights are Omaha beach, Pointe Hawk, Saint-Marie Englise, Paratrooper museum and the cemetery which was very emotional and humbling. Omaha beach was too. Utah beach was cool too.

Our guide, Olivier, had not only tremendous knowledge about D-Day and the story, but imparted it with great passion. His storytelling of the individuals and the sacrifices was spellbinding. Omaha Beach Cemetery and hearing Taps while there will be a forever memory.

How to Get There

Omaha Beach is located along the coast of Normandy in northern France, 15 miles (24 kilometers) northwest of Bayeux. Although buses run to the beach from Bayeux, the easiest way to visit is by private transportation or as part of a guided tour. The American Cemetery lies above the beach, from where a long walkway heads down to the beach itself.

When to Get There

Tours run to Omaha Beach year-round, but it can get busy during peak summer season. If you’re visiting in July and August, try to arrive early morning or early evening to avoid the large groups of day-trippers. The most moving time to visit is during the annual D-Day Festival, which commemorates the anniversary of the Allied Landings with a program of memorials, parades, and beachside picnics.

The D-Day Landings

Omaha Beach was the location of one of the most significant battles World War II. On June 6, 1944, American troops were given the task of securing Omaha Beach as part of a strategy to land Allied troops along five points on the coast of Normandy—an operation code-named D-Day. Due to unforeseen tidal forces and stronger than expected German defenses, the American soldiers suffered massive losses—2,400 casualties in a day of bloody fighting. However, the landing was eventually successful with 34,000 troops securing the area for the Allies, and thus beginning the end of the war.
