The stunning Portelet bay is situated on Jersey’s south coast and is often described as a suntrap because it is sheltered between high cliffs, making it ideal for sunbathers. The bay also has a history surrounding it, perfect if you are on a hunt for a touch of culture - the island tower just off the beach is home to Janvrin’s Tomb. Although, do take care on your way down as there are slightly steep steps that lead down to the bay. This picturesque location has a mouth-watering café that serves delicious wood-fired pizza.

Havre des Pas (only one I could find).jpg

Havre des Pas

Havre des Pas gives a typical seaside resort feel whilst being in a prime location as it is situated near St Helier, the capital of the island. It is the ideal spot for swimmers as lifeguards are on duty from the end of May until the beginning of September and there are Victorian bathing pools that fill up at high tide creating pools of seawater. It is only a short 10-minute walk from the city’s restaurants and bars which is another reason as to why it is such a popular beach. If you are after a unique beach that has a bit of character and ideal for all the family, this is a glorious option!

St. Ouen’s Bay

St. Ouen’s Bay on the west coast of Jersey offers 5 miles of golden sand and is very popular in the summer months, but you can find some quieter parts across the stretch. The beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the high season as it can be hazardous at times due to the strong currents, so you must stay within the flagged zones.

Bonne Nuit.jpg

Beaches in the North

Bonne Nuit

Bonne Nuit beach (goodnight beach in French) got its name because of its reputation as a peaceful and tranquil mooring. It is a tiny fishing harbour so it is not the best location if you are after a long swim in the sea but spectacular for a picnic or if you want to catch some rays. It is sheltered by hills which protect the beach from strong winds, it is a wonderful place to clear your mind. Bonne Nuit Beach Café has a brilliant reputation for serving delicious food whilst you enjoy the breathtaking view!

Archirondel

Archirondel beach is pebbly but during low tide it is sandy, the water is shallow for quite a way out making it the perfect location for children. In the late afternoon, Archirondel loses the sun, this is something to be aware of before planning your trip. Jersey is buzzing with history and the Archirondel Tower is a significant factor of this beach, the tower has been a key point of defence throughout the years and was used as a garrison for artillery soldiers. This beach is impressive, historical and family-friendly.

North West Jersey Beaches

Grevé de Lecq 

Grevé de Lecq is one of the most popular beaches in the North of Jersey and a must-see if you are staying in this part of the island. The only downside to this beach is that it can lose the late afternoon sun, but you can always visit a local pub for a bite after! The beautiful golden sand, easy parking spots and clear waters make it a firm favourite amongst the locals. A stunning choice for a fun day out even in winter.

Plémont Beach (with surfer).jpg

Plémont Beach

All the beaches in the Channel Islands have extraordinary charm and unbelievable views but Plémont Beach is one of the most popular destinations for photographers. The immaculate cove is surrounded by cliffs and dotted with rock pools and secret caves. You must check the tide times before heading down because at high tide the sand is covered! The beach is sheltered and soft making it an ideal spot for sunbathers. The waves can pick up during high tide where it becomes a surfer's dream; it is a beach that appeals to the masses.

Green Island

Green Island is one of the popular beaches in the south-east of Jersey as it is idyllic for a variety of different activities and complete with amenities.

At low tide, you may be able to catch sight of the amazing marine life that lives below the water's surface. Whether it is rock pooling, swimming or sunbathing there is something for everyone at this golden haven.
