Information


Grandcamp est un village tranquille du Bessin, en Normandie, dans le Calvados, et un port de pêche actif, situé entre les plages du Débarquement, Omaha Beach et Utah Beach. Réputé pour ses coquilles Saint-Jacques et ses poissons frais, on y pêche aussi la crevette dans les rochers découverts à marée basse, et on y cultive les huitres.

Proche de la Pointe du Hoc, Grandcamp a été adopté par les Rangers après la deuxième guerre mondiale comme leur " home away from home".
