FAQ Where is Omaha Beach located ?

Omaha Beach is one of the assault beaches part of the Normandy Invasion that took place on June 6, 1944. The beach is located 21 kilometers - 13 miles - to the west of Bayeux, on the coast of Normandy facing the English Channel. The town of Bayeux makes a perfect departure point to visit the D-DAY landing beaches of Normandy and all our shared tours depart from here.

How many people died on Omaha Beach ?

Omaha Beach was the largest of the D-DAY assault areas. It stretched over 10 kilometers (6 miles). The area was assigned to the U.S First Army under Lieutenant General Omar Bradley. From the beginning everything went wrong at Omaha. Special tanks sank in choppy waters of the Channel, no unit of the 116th landed were it was planned as strong winds and tidal currents carried the landing crafts from right to left. By the end of the day, the Americans had suffered 2,400 casualties but had landed 34,000 troops.

Where is Pointe du Hoc located ?

Located halfway between Omaha Beach and Utah beach, Pointe du Hoc is at a distance of just under 30 kilometers (18 miles) from Bayeux. The site is famous for being one of the assault areas on June 6th 1944 Normandy Invasion of WWII. It was a key feature of the German defensive fortifications. The site reminds us of what an artillery battery looked like.
