I wanted the cliff to be imposing. There will be two large bunkers that hang over the cliff and either side of the bunkers will be trails that lead up the cliff face (so a total of 4 trails leading up the cliff face). I've included a picture below from Saving Private Ryan that shows roughly what I mean by the large cliff face bunkers.
Picture below taken using my phone camera (some with flash, some without).

|My inspiration for the cliff face bunkers. Each will have|
an approach/trail up either side to reach the top of the cliff.
|The cliff is 7.5" above the sand. I'll be painting|
the foam black so it looks more like a finished product.
|I really love this particular terrain mat - especially since|
it will be very easy to store and transport.

|I've started on landing craft assembly - here you can see|
one of my LCA's ready to land some armour on the beach.
There will be a sand berm a little before the cliff that will be lined with barbed wire and hedgehogs. Any infantry section that makes it to the berm can spend an action to detonate a Bangalore torpedo to create a gap in the wire and a crater that will provide light cover. Bangalore torpedoes will be able to be used twice during the game (creating two gaps in the berm obstacles).
I have a ton of beach obstacles to assemble now ... so moving on to that stage.
