Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The temporary artificial harbor at Arromanches was commissioned in June 1944 to facilitate the shipment of heavy machinery and personnel into Normandy after D-Day. Concrete caissons to build the port were constructed in England and towed across the Channel. During the 100 days of operation of the port, 2.5 million men, 500,000 vehicles and 4 million tons of material went thru Mulberry Harbour. Remnants of the port are still visible off the coast. Fascinating!

Visited Gold Beach as part of D Day trip to all five beaches.

There is plenty to do and see here with the remains of the cassons from the Mulberry Harbour still present. You are actually shaking hands with history on this beach.

Whilst dining in the evening a Canadian pipe band marched along the High Street and gave a beautiful concert for an hour at the top of the beach head this was very evocative as the sun set.

A great place to visit with plenty of exhibits on display in public areas.

The cliffs offer a beautiful view of the town, beach and the remains of the Mulberry Harbours, which were the temporary portable harbours used by the Allies during WWII.

Amazing place to see the views of gold beach and the remains of the mulberry harbour.
It’s cost €3 to park in the nearby hilltop Carpark right by the royal engineers memorial.

Great veiws from the cliff tops. Some viewing platforms and viewing devices available for use. Information plaques dotted around. It's all happening on the beaches on the seafront though and take the time to walk down there. Great museum not to be missed on the promenade. Disembark museum.

When we visited we came by train, and had no transportation. The buses are infrequent and inconvenient, which is a shame in this historic area. A taxi would have been expensive, so we walked the beach as the tide went out as far as we could toward Arromanches, then took to the road. It was a super hike up and over the hill in between the towns, and a great viewpoint of the layout of the beaches. In addition we came across some memorials to various units from a grateful French nation. We saw the Lafontaine de Saint-Come-de-Fresne monument and the remains of Port Winston stretching along the seashore. Just before the Cinema 360 as you descend into Arramanches there is an area containing pieces of the framework of the Mulberry. An elevated building has many informational plaques indicating who was where, when, as the invasion took place. It is worth at least an hour right there. Then you walk down the trail to the roads of town and everywhere are reminders, artifacts and museums of collected items now on display. It was a day very well spent. The tide was out by this time so we walked back to Asnelles on the beach.

This once awesome view is now marred by the massive construction site in the former main town parking. The old parking lot is being converted to an expansion of the D-Day museum of questionable need.

the town and promenade are to die for, with great bars and small shops, and while you can see leftover of the pontoons used to create a temporary harbour for the vessel to land after D-Day, a quick trip on the nearby falaise can provide an immeasurably better view

From these cliffs you have a panoramic view of the beaches and what remains of the Mulberry Harbour.
