A lovely sleepy coastal town in Normandy.




One of my favorite little towns on the D-Day beaches is Arromanches les Bains.

Site of Mulberry “B”, one of the artificial harbours assembled for allied invasion forces, this quaint little town consists of only a couple of hotels, restaurants, cafés and crèpe venders. My favorite spot, however, is the vintage carousel that sits right on top of the coastline next to the Arromanches D-Day museum, Musée du Débarquement.

For more information on Arromanches, check out this lovely piece in Historynet by James Ullrich.
