Visit here in the afternoon when the tide is out & you can walk out on the beach & look, touch & explore the remains of the Mulberry Harbour put in place by the Allies shortly after D-Day to facilitate the unloading of military forces & equipment. There is no cost to do this.

This was a superb example of military engineering the scale is amazing and to stand by the Cassion reminds of how huge the effort would have been We will remember them.

My generation knew all about the Mulberry harbour and it's very interesting to see it in the flesh. No charge just wait until the tide is out. Good view from the hilltop or promenade. The museum explains what it's all about if you don't know.

Not until you see the remains of the harbour will you appreciate the scale and enormity of the Mulberry Harbour project, and its contribution to the D Day landings. The remains serve as testimony and memorial to the engineers.

We happened into town during low tide, which was prime to see the remaining caissons from DDay. Kids loved it, very memorable. Also recommend checking out the museums for more context.

As part of our D-Day tour from the Caen Museum, we visited this site where you can see the remains of this logistical wonder of a bridge built from way off-shore to a Normandy beach to allow the huge number of people and equipment to land for D-Day. After seeing films of the construction and use of the bridge at... More

I would recommend going to the museum first. It will give you an insight into what happened here and what now remains of the harbour the allies built. Quite an amazing place.

Hearing about it all my life was nothing like seeing the actual remnants of this colossal feat of seventy years ago. We walked down to the old sections still there at low tide. It gives you an idea of the magnitude of the Harbor and the planning that went into this feat.

It's amazing these large artifacts from the D-Day invasion are still here. It doesn't begin to give you an idea of what the harbour must have looked like during the short time it was operational (and how it could have been built so quickly)! You can get up close and investigate them, but do be careful. There are sharp edges... More
