Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After visiting many Allied WW11 sites, this really puts into perspective how difficult the DDay invasion was.

It was much busier here than I expected but there is a very large car park, small tourist information and free public toilets. Check the walking trail map, then head for the 4, mostly intact, bunkers. There’s lots of signage along the way regarding the bunkers - how they worked, how they were built and to think the guns could shoot 19.5 Kms out to sea. You can actually walk in behind the guns.

Perpendicular to the bunkers is a path to the cliff side. There is a Tobruk here, an inground structure that one soldier could stand in and shoot in a 360 degree direction, then further along, the command post with a perfect view of the channel. Looking east, you can see the temporary port at Arromanche. Then continue walking back to the car park.

This is so worth a visit, to really see the German perspective along their heavily fortified Atlantic Wall.

These WWII Atlantic Wall bunkers are mostly in good condition and are a must for any history buff. The German coastal guns are still setup inside of most of the bunkers - condition varies, but it gives an insightful perspective. Parking is nearby for free and you then follow a gravel/dirt trail around to the gun emplacements and observation posts. Excellent chance to see things up close. Entry is free.

The extent and condition of the site really gives you an insight into the history of the area. Some of the batteries are more intact than others but there is so much to see and look round - both in terms of the structures, the surrounding land and the views over the cliffs and beaches. Definitely worth a visit when touring Normandy and historical sites.

It was interesting to see this German gun battery site. Germany clearly was prepared for attacks from the Allies coming from the Atlantic. Thankfully the Allies had a very strategic plan that worked. If it hadn't, it's likely we would be living in a very different world where all Jewish people would eventually been killed and all of Europe would be speaking German.

Longues-Sur-Mer is a great example of a well-preserved piece of the Atlantic wall. Free to view and well worth the stop.

This was a wonderful monument of German battery units fighting against the Allies trying to land on the beaches of Normandy in 1944. A lovely walk with several preserved battery displays.

Arrival there was ample parking and free toilets good accessibility and only a short walk the batteries were in remarkable condition considering age could have been better signage and more information reference how the damage was done and if the batteries were used to see any ships something you have to Google when you there.

Decent car park with equal space for buses as cars (too many bus spaces in fact) so some folks parked on the road out. A new information centre here with an observation platform on the roof and more importantly, toilets. A marker describes how the Allies used the fields for air operations and what squadrons operated from here. At the info centre ask for the free plan which shows how to tour the site, they state that to walk around the mapped out rectangle takes 30 minutes.

The casemates are in various states after the action, but have artillery pieces associated with them. The views from the cliff tops do reveal remnants of the mulberries at Arromanches. In the fields near the cliff tops are various concreted machine gun pits.

Our favorite part was being able to go right up to these guns and bunkers. To imagine yourself defending or taking them over. To walk through, touch the walls, touch the guns, it was quite an experience.

This site is worth a visit, good on site parking with a tourist / visitor centre on site, it was closed at the time of our visit. The gun emplacements are quite impressive.
