Omaha Beach is famous for its American Military Cemetery where 5,000 soldiers, fallen in the name of liberty, are laid to rest.
This famous D-Day Landing beach is located on the western Bessin coastline, twelve miles to the north west of Bayeux.
Its plateau, punctuated by two valleys, gently slopes towards the sea in the form of a dead cliff, bordered by a damp saddle and a narrow line of dunes. The site's interest lies in the great variety of natural environments it entails, characterised depending on their distance from the sea, their orientation and the nature of their subsoil.
Access to Colleville-sur-Mer.
