This historic beach was the primary point of landing on June 6, 1944, for the entry of American forces into World War II and saw some of the most intense fighting in the entire war.

We arrived at the beach a bit before the sunset. Intense atmosphere and incredible beautiful sculpture on the beach. Unbelievable tide, a lot of Km of difference between the parking car (close to the beach) and the place were the waves start. Highly recommended

A visit to Omaha beach even in 2017 is a somber experience when thinking back to June 6, 1944 when thousands of Allied troops began the invasion of Normandy. You can realize the great odds that the troops had to overcome to be victorious.

Visited on Veterans Day 2017 and gained a thorough appreciation of the experience allied troops faced during the invasion of Normandy. This is a must see historical attraction.

This is why you travel to Normandy - to see Omaha Beach and visualize what happened in 1944. This is a really wide and long beachfront. Hard to believe that this tranquil place was a place that thousands died.

Wide expanses of golden sand. It is difficult to believe now, that the same sand was soaked in blood on 6 June 1944. The site of the most Allied casualties during the landings.

There is so much to see along this coast, that to get the full experience it is worth doing a little reading beforehand. Give yourself plenty of time to wander the various beaches, and wonder at the enormity of the invasion.

Stopped here while on recent cruise and Normandy tour. It’s a must place to see. Very moving and puts a lump in your throat and brings tears to the eyes. It’s quite a large beach and the walk along the promenade was nice. Highly recommend.
