For what reason was Normandy beach selected for d-day?

Answer:

The beaches of Normandy were selected for D-Day as they had a long series of flat beaches that would be easy to storm, were a short distance away from England, and were also not as well defended as other locations such as Calais. They were also nearby to some large European ports, such as Cherbourg and Le Havre, which were vital to the landing effort.
