Omaha Beach, Port en Bessin, Normandy

Overview

Parc highlights

You really can take a walk back in time at Omaha Beach - one of Normandy’s enigmatic D Day beaches, itself close to the D-Day Museum in Arromanches.

But this pivotal coastline wears its history lightly; quietly, even - and days at the coast here are invigorating: whether you’re paddling, kite flying or sunbathing. The same is true for the town of Bayeux - its rich history woven as much into its timeless streets as its famous tapestry. Pleasures of a more leisurely nature can be found at the Omaha Beach Golf Club - one of France’s top courses. This residence is just 9km from Omaha beach and just 1 kilometre from the centre of Port-en-Bessin, a charming seaside development with a busy harbour and good cafes serving delicious local cheeses and pastries. The holiday park is a delight - with three swimming pools on site and perfectly designed to fit effortlessly into the rolling Normandy landscape.
