Access from Normandy American Cemetery to Beach No Longer Accessible

Jump to last reply

I was just checking the American Battle Monuments Commission website for the time each day taps is played at the Normandy Cemetery (Omaha Beach). The site states:

<Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Due to security concerns, the pathway from Normandy American Cemetery to the beach is no longer open to the public. However, public beach access is available nearby.

Omaha Beach can be accessed by taking D514 west from the cemetery to St Laurent sur Mer. Take the first exit at the traffic circle. This road will take you to the beach, where there is plenty of parking.

Omaha Beach can also be accessed by taking D514 east from the cemetery to Colleville sur Mer. As you enter the town of Colleville there will be a road to you left. Follow this road all the way down to the grass parking lot.>

Unless someone here tells me otherwise, I'll believe the website (although it hasn't been updated since before Memorial Day.) We would like to visit the cemetery then stroll the beach. Does anyone have a suggestion as to going east or west to find parking for a beach stroll?

Thanks!
