A very interesting, historical place, with a stunning view at the sea. This is where American soldiers climbed a cliff, defended by German soldiers in their bunkers. The results of the bombing are still to be seen here.

This really surpassed our expectations. The story of the D Day landings is beautifully captured - you can walk into the bomb craters and shelters. Fantastic views too.

Unique amongst the Normandy D-day landings. Allied forces (American) had to scale cliffs to engage with occupying forces. Bomb craters can still be seen.

At 2 km from us, a visit to the Point gives you a great sense of the violence of the conflict as well as tells you the moving story of the Rangers who climbed the cliffs on D-Day morning to take the point. You can go in and out of bunkers, and kids always enjoying running around the site.

“Almost 20.000 German soldiers (among them also 17 year old boys) are buried here. It is a must-do to see the difference between this cemetry, and the American one. In all kind of ways fascinating.”
