The village of Colleville sur Mer in Normandy is located in the department of Calvados, 17 km west of Bayeux. It is famous for its Omaha Beach where the allies landed on June 6, 1944. It is here that we find the American cemetery just a few steps from the beach on the cliffs of Colleville (9388 people are buried there). We discover it in the film of Steven Spielberg, Saving Private Ryan.

Colleville sur Mer Beach is shared with two other towns to the west (Saint Laurent sur Mer and Vierville sur Mer) and extends for almost 7 km. In the area of Colleville, the beach is supervised in July and August. At low tide, there is a vast expanse of sand and you can practice sand yachting. The village is away from the sea.

Near Colleville, the village of Arromanches-les-Bains is a “must-see”. You can see the remains of the artificial port (it is the only one in the area that was used after the landing to supply the allied troops, the one at Colleville was destroyed by a storm). Further west, the resort of Courseulles sur Mer is worth a visit for its beautiful beach and Juno Beach museum.
