Travel Tips for Arromanches-les-Bains

Any means you have to get around

by ranger49

I thought this might be a Transportation Tip - but not really!
Do look out for less usual ways to arrive and get around -you will see buses, mini-buses, motor bike and cycles, taxis and private cars.

But you may see many other means of transport.
I have selected only a couple of extras seen on a late Sunday afternoon at the beginning of October.

"D-Day Tour - Mulberry Harbour & Gold Beach"

We visited this small town as our first stop of our tour of the Normandy D-Day beaches. We took our time to explore Gold beach, where you can still get a close up view of part of the famous Mulberry Harbour. These huge harbours made the beachhead D-Day landings such a success.

The principal purpose of the trip was to visit the World War II beaches of Normandy. The beaches cover an area of over 60 miles and so we based ourselves in Bayeux, which put us in a fantastic central location.

We packed into our short stay the following villages and towns Arromanches-les-Bains for Gold beach and the Mulberry Harbour, Sainte-Mère-Église for the church, Utah beach and the US Airborne museum, Maisy for the batteries at Maisy and Pointe du Hoc, Colleville-sur-Mer for Omaha beach and the American Cemetery, Courseulles-sur-Mer for Juno beach, Bénouville for Pegasus Bridge and the Memorial Museum, Ouistreham for Sword beach, Merville-Franceville-Plage for the gun battery and Ranville for the CWGC Cemetery.

Arromanches was liberated on the first afternoon of D-Day 6th June 1944, by the 1st Battalion Royal Hampshire Regiment (British Army).

It has a D-Day Landing museum by the beach which tells in great detail the story of the Mulberry harbours. Another place to visit would be the 360 degree cinema on top of the hill.

We stayed for the afternoon and had lunch at one of the many small restaurants dotted around the town and then headed off to our B&B in Bayeux

"D-Day Tour - Mulberry Harbour & Gold Beach"

Gold Beach at Arromanches gives you an incredible feeling of history. This is because of the enormous remains of the Mulberry Harbour and the piers that still remain at the site.

There were two transportable harbours, each the size of Dover harbour.

They were brought across the channel and were situated here at Gold beach and also at Omaha. The harbour at Omaha was destroyed by storm only thirteen days after D-day but the one here at Arromanches survived.

D-Day, the WW II invasion and the Mullberry port

by Pavlik_NL

"For a moment the most important port in the world"

Arromanches is a small village that played a huge role in the D-day landings of 1944. It was part of the British landingzone and found suitable for the Mulberry port that was necessary for bringing over heavier equipment to the conquered area in Normandy. It became even of vital importance, when the American Mulberry port was swept away in a autumn storm and Arromanches for a while became the most important harbour in the world (in tons of goods handled). In the sea many leftover pontons and bridgeparts are scattered on the seabed still. Silent memories of enormous business going on here in 1944.

"A village full of history in present days"

Now-a-days the village of Arromanches is a small place with lot's of seaside charm and packed with monuments, leftovers and museums commemorating the turbulent days in 1944. In the streets cosy little café's and restaurants battle with packed souvenirshops for the many visitors that arrive from all over the world. Looking for the grave a fallen familymember, interested in the historic events that took place here and some even ... just to take a sunbath on the beach.

ARROMANCHES

by BerniShand

It was strange, sitting in the hot August sunshine looking down at children playing on the beach, to think that almost 60 years ago the beach was a battlefield, there was no sadness there that day that we could see, but the rusting remains of the artificial harbour put there by the allies gave a reminder of what had been

We were very lucky as we sat at the lookout point eating our pic-nic lunch, an American family and their guide arrived and we shared the guides talk about the D Dat landing and the history of Arromanches, if that was your family, thank you very much !
