78th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

Inherited from contemporary history, the Allied landing of June 6, 1944 generated a very high attendance
international tourism to the point of becoming a vital sector of the Normandy tourism economy. Every year, the tourist offices of the Cotentin region join forces to offer you a colorful program near the Baie des Veys campsite in Sainte Marie du Mont.


Last year already, the organizers did a great job! Just ten minutes from the campsite, you could experience the thrill of a parachute drop of 500 civilians and soldiers at Sainte-Mère Eglise, as France Bleu’s Clémentine Vergnaud tells us in this article .

The spectators were numerous to attend the parachute drops.

An extraordinary show in Normandy!
