Ver-sur-Mer is a commune in the Calvados department in the Normandy region in northwestern France. It is located at the eastern end of Gold Beach between Arromanches and Courseulles. The town is 25 km from Caen and 16 km from Bayeux.
This village has a pony club, a small supermarket, a sailing club, tennis court, French bakery, beach, shrimp fishing, a youth hostel and more. It is also home to the America-Gold Beach Museum.
Ver-sur-Mer's lighthouse, still active today, was built in 1908 on the heights above the beach. During World War II, Canadian troops seized the lighthouse swiftly, however, it was badly damaged and had to be restored after the end of the war. Saint-Martin is Ver-sur-Mer's church which was constructed between the 10th-12th century.
