Plemont Bay Jersey is a must-see destination for anyone visiting the island, with its unique caves and a natural waterfall that runs after a downpour of rain and creates a fresh water stream into the sea. During high tide when the sea is calm, you can swim up through the waterfall and explore the cave behind it.
If you want to explore the beach and sunbathe on the golden sand, make sure to go during low tide. If you happen to visit while the tide is high and the sand is hidden, you can wonder along the beautiful coastal paths around the headland either east to Greve de Lecq, or west towards Gronez Castle. Both footpaths lead from the Plemont Beach Café, the perfect location for a post-walk refuel.
This secret bay is also populated with an exciting array of birds and wildlife. If you look closely, you may just be able to see the puffins that inhabit the cliffs of Plemont Point. Look to the water and you might see some of Jersey’s unusual sea creatures such as the beautiful cuckoo wrasse fish or the short snouted seahorse. If you’re looking on land, the dunes are home to many interesting animals such as the western green lizard (with Jersey being their only natural home), the lesser white-toothed shrew, and the short-toed treecreeper. Summer, when the sun is shining, is the best time to seek out the reptiles or for those with more interest in what creatures lurk within the rockpools, Autumn is best as the sea is at its warmest.
A locally-run beach café overlooking the gorgeous Plemont Bay is an idyllic stop to refuel and make the most out of the fantastic views. The café serves up genuine local produce with Jersey Royal potatoes, freshly caught seafood, coffee beans roasted in Jersey and locally brewed beer. At this café, you even have the possibility of seeing dolphins with a plate of freshly made delicacies waiting on a table in front of you. Could there be a better way to spend an afternoon?
