Discover the Normandy Landing Beaches and the Cotentin marshlands in Normandy
You will be able to start your discovery of the Cotentin through its historical heritage by going around the history sights of the Cotentin. You should go to the Second World War Landing Beaches, and especially one of the best-known beaches: Utah Beach. It extends from Sainte-Marie-du-Mont to Quinéville. A landing museum has been built at the very place the Americans landed on the sixth of June 1944.
To complete your tour, we recommend you continue your visit with the D-Day Experience, which tells the epic story of the troupes that were carried in by plane, and the World War Two museum, which plunges the visitor into the atmosphere of those troubled times.
After paying homage to our soldiers, why not discover another side of the region, the Cotentin marshlands. Take a boat ride through or walk along the banks of the Cotentin and Bessin marshlands. Let yourselves be carried along by the waves for one or two hours when following the captain of the boat, who will take great care to tell you some anecdotes about the region of Normandy. This is an activity that you can do with friends or family, which is certainly worth a detour.
