Juno Beach and the D-Day Beaches
Courseulles-sur-Mer and Arromanches - places of remembrance
In Courseulles-sur-Mer lies Juno Beach, located between the British Sword and Gold Beaches. This was part of the Canadian sector, and it has since been dedicated to Canada as an homage to its army’s intervention. After you visit the museum there, walk along the beach and picture yourself in the events that took place here in 1944, whose memory is ever present. You’ll also be able to swim along Juno Beach and walk amid the dunes in a natural area that is among the most characteristic of Normandy’s Côte de Nacre.
Thanks to its location on the coast, our hotel in Courseulles-sur-Mer is the perfect place from which to discover the other D-Day beaches. Come and discover places full of history, which are unique testimonies to the Second World War. There’s Omaha Beach in Colleville-sur-Mer and its American cemetery and the German battery at Longues-sur-Mer (a major part of the Atlantic Wall). Just 13 km from the hotel is Gold Beach and Arromanches-sur-Mer with its artificial port, the D-Day Museum and Arromanches 360, a 360° cinema experience plunging you into the Battle of Normandy. There’s also the British cemetery in Brazenville, Graye-sur-Mer (whose beach depended on the Juno Beach sector), and Sword Beach, east of Courseulles in Ouistreham with its Atlantic Wall Museum The Bunker.
