|This open air coastal batterie is another beautifully preserved example of the Atlantik Wall and is a very popular tourist spot drawing thousands of visitors every year most notably during the summer months.
It’s very easy to find and a must see when visiting the Normandy region. Located to the west of Aromanches-les-Bains and close to the town of Long-sur-Mer.
Take the D514 west and then the D104 North until you reach the batterie parking lot. Parking is limited but if you are camping there is a camping area just a few hundred yards heading North. My suggestion is to get their early. When I visited this site in 2013 I arrived around 10:00 a.m. within an hour the lot was full but as is the case with a lot of areas in France you can park to the side of the road, safely.
I used two different cameras on the 2013 visit. The Nikon Coolpix 35mm and the Apple iPad mini.
