Caen Ferry Port Overview
Caen Ferry Port lies in the small port town of Ouistreham which is at the mouth of Canal de Caen la Mer (Canal of Caen). This canal is made up of a group of quays and docks and connects the port of Caen to the city of Caen flowing to the town of Ouistreham and the English Channel.

Caen Ferry Port is the newest ferry port on the Channel and is just 15 Kilometres or 7 miles to the north of Caen city accessed via fast dual carriageway. There are excellent road links to Paris, Brittany, the Loire, the South West, the Med and the rest of Normandy.

Caen is the capital of Lower Normandy and lays between two rivers the Orne and the Odon. Caen was one of the many cities to suffer the ill-effects of World War II.

The city was bombed on D-Day and is said to have burned for a week before being liberated. The damage was on a grand scale and the only vestiges of the past to remain were the ramparts of the Chateau and the two great abbeys. These were built by William the Conqueror when he founded the City in the 11th Century.

The beaches are the sites of D-Day landings and some of the best to visit are Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches (northeast of Bayeux) and Pointe du Hoc on Omaha Beach. Caen has excellent shopping facilities and many other historic places to visit.
