Band of Brothers was based on what happened around here for parts 2 & 3.
The 82nd & 101st airborne troops parachuted into the area with St Mere Eglise just 6 miles away.
Further up the coast the other invasion beaches are all easy access and well worth a visit. The museums, memorials and information are superb with films in most museums, all of them are really worth visiting...we highly recommend the 360 degree cinema at Arromanches. There is so much to do here, not just the invasion beaches....we have a lot of folk that have come back for a 2nd visit, 3rd...our record is 8 times so far!
Other Activities: Bird watching,dolphin & seal watching, boat trips round the invasion beaches, sand yachting,para wind surfing, beach combing
Golf: Golf here is quite fantastic...

Omaha Golf Made up of three 9 hole courses, the outstanding views of the d-day landings beaches from this course make the whole trip worthwhile. An excellently maintained undulating cliff top course, some of the shots possible are not for the faint hearted.
Barneville Carteret An outstanding links course with undulating fairways, sand dunes, water hazards and narrow greens, this 9 hole course (soon to be developed to 18) benefits from outstanding views of the channel islands
An 18 hole links close to the quaint town of Agon-Coutainville and only 5km west of Coutances, Coutainville is a challenge for golfers of all abilities particularly in the wind.
