What to see on the way from Omaha Beach to Pointe du Hoc ?

You will see some remains of the American artificial harbor that was set up on Omaha Beach.

We are going to drive on the coastal road that was one of the objectives of the American Rangers who landed at the bottom of the cliff on Pointe Du Hoc.

Pointe du Hoc was extremely strategic on D-Day because the German battery on top the cliff was made of long range canons that could shoot on both American fleets : Omaha fleet and Utah fleet.
