Gold Beach at Arromanches-les-Bains.

An emblematic site of the D-Day landings, in part due to the construction of an artificial harbor by the Allies on the evening of D-Day, June 6, 1944, Arromanches beach is still home to the last remnants of the harbor, which you can approach at low tide.

A viewpoint on the heights of Arromanches gives a better idea of the extent of the artificial harbour, while a 360° cinema dedicated to the day of the D-Day landings offers a unique and total immersion experience.
