Omaha Beach is a poignant landmark of World War II, marking a crucial site of the D-Day landings. Visitors can pay tribute at the Les Braves memorial and Normandy American Cemetery, and walk the sands once stormed by brave American soldiers.

Omaha Beach, stretching about five miles along the Normandy coastline, is one of the most famous World War II landing sites. On June 6, 1944, known as D-Day, this peaceful strip of sand became a pivotal battleground as American troops bravely faced formidable German defenses.

Begin your visit at the eastern end of Omaha at Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes, and you'll soon encounter the Les Braves memorial, a remarkable sculpture symbolizing wings of hope, wings of fraternity, and wings of freedom. This poignant piece captures the heroic spirit of the day.

Continue to the Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, just behind the beach. Over 9,000 white crosses and Stars of David honor those who lost their lives during the D-Day landings and ensuing operations. The adjacent visitor center provides insightful exhibits on the soldiers' stories and the strategic planning behind the landings.

Take a quiet stroll along the beach itself, now a serene contrast to its historic significance. As you walk, remember the courageous efforts of the soldiers who stormed these shores in the name of freedom.
