A Guide to JERSEY'S BEST BEACHES

You’re never far from a beach in Jersey and the island has some of the best in the business.

Jersey has beaches for everyone whether you want to swim, surf, explore, wander, or just build sandcastles in the sunshine. Head north for quiet coves and hidden harbours whilst the east is the best for sunrises and stunning views over the French coast. The south offers golden sand and safe bathing for youngsters and out west is the place to be for surfers.

Best Jersey beaches for families


St Brelade’s Bay has it all. South-facing with lifeguards patrolling in the summer, the beach enjoys day-long sunshine and slopes gently down to the water. You can rent kayaks and pedal boats to get out on the water, try rock pooling with the little ones and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

Just ten minutes’ walk from St Helier, check out Havre de Pas. Its large tidal bathing pool fills with fresh seawater at every tide and you’ll be charmed by the lido’s 1920s Art Deco style, think Instagram. There’s also a children’s pool nearby and lifeguards are on duty in the summer.

The gentle waves of La Haule in western St Aubin’s Bay, protected by harbour walls, will give the youngest beach-goers the confidence to splash in the sea. They’ll love the soft sand, as you enjoy the beautiful views of Elizabeth Castle.

The tiny harbour of Bonne Nuit Bay, sheltered by green hills, will surprise as low tide reveals a pretty sandy beach. Take a picnic to this north coast favourite or drop in at a café.

 

 

Most popular beaches in Jersey


Many visitors say St Brelade’s Bay is the best beach in Jersey. It’s probably the most popular on the island, with its south-facing golden sands, busy promenade and a great choice of places to eat.

If you fancy getting active, why not rent a kayak or paddle board or investigate the rock pools at low tide.


St Ouen’s Bay on the west coast has something for everyone. Surfers love riding the Atlantic swell but families will enjoy the traditional resort style of La Braye. Walk out to Corbiere lighthouse at Jersey’s south western tip but don’t be caught by the incoming tide.


Queen Victoria was impressed by Grouville on the east coast, it’s also known as the Royal Bay. Sunrises are legendary here with Instagram-friendly views of Gorey Harbour and Mont Orgueil Castle together with plenty of cafés and restaurants.


You’ve probably already seen Beauport Bay on the south coast as it often features in Jersey’s publicity material. Climb down from the car park to this crescent of golden sand which captures the best of the sun and there’s also a nature reserve behind the shoreline. Best bring a picnic to this secluded spot.

Best Dog-friendly Beaches in Jersey


Dogs are welcome on Jersey, you don’t need a doggie passport if you’re travelling from the UK, and there are plenty of beaches to choose from but, remember, you’ll have to pop them on a lead from May to September between 10:30 and 18:00.


If your dog enjoys a good run, they won’t be disappointed by St Ouens Bay. It stretches for miles along the west coast and you’ll find cafés along the way for a quick snack and a bowl of cooling water for your four-legged friend.


Two-mile long Bouley Bay on the north coast is peaceful and pebbly, under the island’s tallest cliffs. You might like to visit the Black Dog pub, named after an ancient ghostly beast who walked the streets at night, frightening locals with the sound of its chain rattling on the ground.


There’s plenty of room for everyone at St Aubin’s Bay. It runs right along the south coast with a road alongside so you can choose your perfect spot to park up, stretch your legs and enjoy some sea air.

 

 

 

Jersey's Best Hidden Beaches 


Just a few steps away at low tide from busy St Brelade’s Bay, you’ll find Ouaisné beach, facing south-west and backed by pine trees. Join the locals at the Smugglers Inn when it’s time to rest your feet.


Tiny Plemont Cove in the north-west enchants with its sandy beach and rocky cliffs. There are caves to explore and rock pools to investigate at low tide and its sheltered location means it’s a favourite with sunbathers.


Descend the steep steps to Portelet Bay in the south-west. You’ll see the Janvrin’s Tomb, an island tower named after a local sea captain who returned home during the plague. It was forbidden to land and died on board. Today, you can enjoy pizza at the Portelet Bay Café or visit the Portelet Inn.


Skim some pebbles at Archirondel on the east coast and don’t miss the red and white Martello tower, a favourite with the Instagram crowd.

Best Surf Beaches in Jersey 


The best beaches in Jersey for watersports are in the west.


Three mile-long St Ouens is a paradise for surf riders – the first surf school opened here in 1914. Sea breezes from the southwest, challenging currents and the rolling Atlantic swell provide thrills for experienced surfers and kiteboarders and you can even learn how to do it from the experts.


La Braye in the most sheltered part of the bay is perfect for sunbathers and families and lifeguards are on patrol.
When it’s time to chill out, enjoy a sunset BBQ on the sand or join locals and visitors at the ever-popular Watersplash Beach Bar and Diner, established in the 1960s for the surfing crowd.
