Le Cormoran is a delightful campsite with the beach just across the road from the entrance. It is situated just a few kilometres north of Utah Beach. There are around 100 touring pitches but more mobile home pitches. Pitches are of a good size and average at least 100 sq mts but there are some quite a bit bigger, all are separated by hedges. Electricity (10 amp) is available to all pitches with water points in each section. There are several unisex toilet blocks dotted around the site all of a very good standard. The toilets are do not have seats and no paper is supplied. There is a nice swimming pool complex on site. Children are well catered for. There is a Bar which doubles as an Ice Cream Parlour. Whilst there is no restaurant they do have a takeaway although this seems mainly to sell pizzas. Next to the bar is a small shop where you can buy bread and some essentials. Motorhomes are well catered for with there own hard standing area. The site also offers a special price of €15 for motorhomes that arrive after 18.00hrs and leave first thing in the morning, this price includes electrics and waste disposal. WiFi is available at a modest hourly rate and can be received in the touring areas. Camping Cheques are accepted at this campsite. Date of visit, early September 2007.
One of the main attractions of this area are the close associations with the Normandy Landings in WW2. Ste Mere Eglise has an excellent Airborne Museum and on the coast near Ste Marie de Mont is the Utah Beach Museum. Entrance charges for both are at reasonable levels. For shopping there is a Super U in Ste Mere Eglise. Other wise there are miles of sandy beaches!
