Jersey’s Fantastic Beaches

 

2003nm018-jerseyThere is a beach for everyone in Jersey. Although only a small island, there are large expanses of sandy beaches  ideal for walking miles, beaches with hundreds of rock pools for children to explore, small sheltered beaches to enjoy a private picnic, beaches that can only be accessed from the sea or by narrow, steep steps, a town beach just steps from the shops and hotels and beaches with all the water sports facilities expected in a holiday island.

 

Which beach is for you?

St Brelade’s Bay is arguably the most beautiful and is Jersey’s busiest beach due to its south facing aspect.  Boasting golden sands with high cliffs at one end and a tiny parish church at the other, the beach is sheltered and very popular with families as the bathing is safe at all states of the tide.  Well served with water and beach sports facilities, cafes, car park, public toilets, shops and beach kiosks. St Brelade’s Bay is a very popular beach and best for families with small children.

 

St Ouens beach is also known as the Five Mile beach for obvious reasons! Literally miles of golden sand on the west coast with Atlantic rollers crashing in, this is the beach for surfers to match any beach anywhere in the world.  Ideal also for sand yachting and kite flying and wind surfing – this is the beach for cool dudes!  There are several cafes and pubs along the stretch of beach, public toilets, plenty of car parking, surfing shops and beach kiosks but to be honest, this beach never feels busy as there are just too many miles of sand.

 

On the east coast Gorey beach is dominated by the imposing Mont Orgueil castle overlooking the pretty little harbour ringed with shops and cafes.  There is car parking near the common with access directly onto the beach and a playground. Gorey watersports operate in the summer and offer waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayak hire, banana rides, speed boat trips, self-drive motor dinghy hire etc.  They also provide wetsuits, life jackets and tuition so this is the place to come for an action-packed day if that’s what you want.

 

On the north coast the most accessible beach is at Greve du Lecq with excellent facilities and car parking.  Featuring high surrounding cliffs this beach is sheltered with golden sand and a stone jetty with distant views of the surrounding Channel Islands.  This beach has safe bathing most of the time, public toilets, cafes and pubs. The Moulin de Lecq lies in a valley just off the beach and features a water wheel.  Kayaking and coasteering can be pre-booked and there are lots of other water and beach sports available.  You can also visit the Devil’s Hole.  This beach is rarely crowded, more of a local secret.

 

So you can choose beaches on the south, west, east or north of Jersey plus there are dozens more smaller ones with fascinating names like Ouaisne Bay, La Rocque, Archirondel and Havre des Pas.  Jersey expands every day, twice a day when the tide rushes in and out covering the beaches with up to 40 feet of Atlantic Ocean.
