Can't believe it until you see it

Humbling and awe inspiring. I wish we could have seen it at low tide. You get a totally new perspective on what an undertaking D-day was. I hope to return.

Not much to see. Mainly for those familiar with D-Day history. Mulberry Harbor was critical to supplying allied forces advancing inland from D-Day beaches.

We stopped here on our return journey from southern Brittany to Calais. Parking can be a little difficult as it is a small resort, but worth it if you can make the effort, as the welcome is very warm, particularly to British and Americans. The history of what took place here during the D-day landings is well presented. This was... More

Amazing to see the mulberries right out in the water. Beach is open and when the tides are low you can walk right out to some.

Visit here in the afternoon when the tide is out & you can walk out on the beach & look, touch & explore the remains of the Mulberry Harbour put in place by the Allies shortly after D-Day to facilitate the unloading of military forces & equipment. There is no cost to do this.

This was a superb example of military engineering the scale is amazing and to stand by the Cassion reminds of how huge the effort would have been We will remember them.

My generation knew all about the Mulberry harbour and it's very interesting to see it in the flesh. No charge just wait until the tide is out. Good view from the hilltop or promenade. The museum explains what it's all about if you don't know.

Not until you see the remains of the harbour will you appreciate the scale and enormity of the Mulberry Harbour project, and its contribution to the D Day landings. The remains serve as testimony and memorial to the engineers.
