Beach at Arromanches in northern France which is more known under the name "Gold Beach".
Gold Beach was the codename for one of the invasion beaches during the World War II Allied invasion of Normandy, June 6, 1944. It is situated about 24 kilometers east of Omaha Beach and was the first assault zone in the Britisch sector during Operation Overlord on D-Day.
Arromanches was selected as one of the sites for two Mulberry Harbours built on the Normandy coast, the other one built further West at Utah beach. Sections of the Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches still remain today with huge concrete blocks sitting on the sand, and more can be seen further out at sea.
