Normandy: Gold Beach Part II

Hello again! As promised, I’m here to post Part II of Gold Beach, located along the coast of Arromanches-les-Bains. “Gold” was the code name for this landing beach during D-day 1944. Nowadays, this beach is a true tourist attraction, with lots of tourists strolling around and children playing in the sand. The adjoining shoreline is full of souvenir shops and little cafés, as well as a small museum.  I visited the beach in May, so imagine this spot to be even livelier (or crowded) during summer months.

Stay tuned for my next travel post about Normandy, coming soon! If you’d like to see more of what I’ve already posted of my trip, be sure to check out these:
