FAQ How did Utah beach get its name?

Utah beach is the most westerly beach of operation Overlord. It was added at the last moment to the Allied Plan with the aim of seizing the Port of Cherbourg. It was one of two landing areas for the U.S forces, the other one being Omaha located between the villages of Colleville sur Mer and Vierville sur Mer. The names of both U.S landing beaches is believed to have come from the place of origin of 2 NCO's who were working for D-Day ground troops commander General Omar Bradley. The two men were carpenters and were assigned to prepare a London Headquarters for invasion planners. Even though this anecdote has never been proven, it is known that the names were random and that the most important was that the beaches were named with radio clarity in mind.

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.

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.
