Archipelago

Beach
“No D-day trip would be complete without a visit to the haunting Omaha Beach. Best earlier and later in the day when the coach parties have gone and you get to appreciate even more the scale of the endeavour and the sacrifices made on that fateful day.”

Zoo
“Whatever your feeling about zoos, take a picnic and enjoy a day here where the wild animals have plenty of space to roam about. Our grandchildren particularly enjoy the antics of the penguins in their pool - they seem to know when to show off! The zoo is fairly level for pushchairs and extends both sides of the main road.”

“Built on the very beach where the first American troops landed on June 6, 1944, the Utah Beach Museum recounts the story of D-Day in 10 sequences, from the preparation of the landing, to the final outcome and success. This comprehensive chronological journey immerses visitors in the history of the landing through a rich collection of objects, vehicles, materials, and oral histories. Admire an original B26 bomber, one of only six remaining examples of this airplane still in existence worldwide, and relive the epic experience of American soldiers through the film “VICTORY IN THE SAND,” winner of a CINE GOLDEN EAGLE AWARD 2012 and the 2013 CINE SPECIAL JURY AWARD for best museum documentary. By the end of your visit, you will understand the strategic choices for the Allied invasion of Normandy and the reasons for the success at Utah Beach. Thanks to your visit, you will also have contributed to the safeguard of the site and the preservation of the memory of the Allied soldiers’ extraordinary sacrifices.”
