Juno Beach is one of the 5 beaches chosen for the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944.
In Normandy, in Calvados, between Graye-sur-mer and Saint-Aubin-sur-mer, this 9 km long area was given to Canadian and British troops.
In order not to arouse German suspicion, each sector was given a code name: Omaha, Utah, Sword, Gold and Juno. The latter should have been called ‘Jellyfish’ but this proposal did not meet with unanimous approval! Juno’, the name of a lieutenant colonel’s wife, was therefore chosen.
In this section, you will find a lot of information to help you prepare your stay in the Terres de Nacre, and more particularly to discover Juno Beach.
