Jersey Beach Guide

Greve de Lecq, Jersey

With 43.5 miles of coastline around the stunning island of Jersey, there is always a beach that will be a perfect fit for the activities you have in mind and the special people you take along for the adventure. In this short Jersey beach guide, we'll give you a rundown of our favourite beaches and some tips on how to make the most out of those long summer days and wild winter weekends in the perfect spot.

Jersey Beach Guide for Dogs and their lovers

Dogs are welcome! Before we get started, it’s important that we highlight a few simple rules that apply on Jersey beaches for dogs and those who accompany them. Between 1st October and 30th April each year, you do not need to use a lead and dogs can be exercised on the beach at any time. Between 1st May and 30th September, on all beaches, dogs must be kept on a lead between 10:30 and 18:00. Please also pick up after your dog and prevent them from chasing or disturbing wildlife.
Other than that your four legged friend is free to frolic to their heart’s content. Life is quite simply, a beach.

Beach Accessibility Information

Many of the best beaches in Jersey offer easy access for people with limited mobility. At several of the most popular spots, the BeachAbility charity has also made its fantastic beach wheelchairs available; these robust yet comfortable chairs make it easy for wheelchair users to explore the beautiful coast and are completely free of charge. All you need to do is contact BeachAbility 24 hours beforehand to ensure there will be a volunteer present to hand over your wheelchair when you arrive.

Beauport

Beauport

This beach is a real gem, nestled on the South West of the island it is quite the suntrap! This isn't the easiest beach to access, so is probably more suited to families with older children or couples. The rewards for the steep steps down from the car park (asides from a great viewpoint to grab an exceptional photo of the beach) is a wonderfully sheltered south-facing beach with golden sand and shallow turquoise water that is perfect for a serene dip. If you like your beaches quiet and wild, Beauport is the spot for you.

Ouaisne Bay

Ouaisne Bay

No self-respecting Jersey beach guide would be without a mention of the unique beauty of Ouaisne Bay. This beach is like the wilder sibling of the adjoining St Brelade's Bay. The beaches are connected at low tide, or you can access them both via the pine-rich headland, continuing along the sea wall next to the protected L'Ouaisné Common towards locals' favourite, The Smugglers Inn (the perfect end to a romantic day on the beach). The sand is pale and bright and the contrast between the smooth sand underfoot and the brilliance of the blue summer sea is just stunning.

Portelet Bay

Portelet Bay

Stairway to heaven? Climb down the long flight of steps and a sheltered suntrap of a beach awaits you. Portelet Bay is the perfect spot for those who like a little history alongside their holiday. Janvrin’s Tomb was the resting place of Philippe Janvrin, the captain of the Esther. The Esther was a trading boat that travelled from Jersey to France, but during the outbreak of the plague in Europe boats were not allowed to come into Jersey's shores to prevent an outbreak. So they stopped at Janvrin's Tomb, where on the second day of quarantine, Captain Janvrin passed away.

For a taste of Jersey near to Portelet Bay, the locals’ recommendation would absolutely be Portelet Bay Café, which serves excellent wood fired pizza and seafood salads throughout the season. At the top of the steps, you'll also be able to find the family favourite The Portelet Inn.

St Brelade's Bay

St Brelade's Bay

A firm favourite of all. St Brelade's Bay is nothing short of stunning and is full of life in the holidays as one of the island's busiest beaches. With soft sand, safe swimming, beach activities and seaside cafés and restaurants there is something for everyone - though those more favoured to the quiet may prefer beaches like Beauport Bay. Voted as number three in the UK in the TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice awards it's definitely worth soaking up the vibes and the sunshine of this broad stretch of palm tree-lined sand, which is bathed in sun for most of the day and discover for yourself why it's rated so highly!

St Aubin's Bay

A crescent-shaped beach of bright south-facing sand stretching from St Helier to St Aubin, if you love to bask in the warmth of the sun this is the beach to pick as it is in receipt of full sun for most of the day. Bring your parasol and the little ones along to this ideal family beach and leave your picnic basket at home. There are several beach cafés along the promenade front, ideal for foodies with a fondness for taking a dip in the sea. Locals say the softest sand around is at the Gunsite café (Beaumont), and for the more adventurous waterskiing and jetski hire close by at Jersey Sea Sport Centre!

Marine Lake, St Aubin's Bay

Marine Lake, St Aubin's Bay

Another stunning amenity wonderfully close to the hub of St Helier, this large tidal pool dates from Victorian times and was built as a safe place for sea swimming when the tide retreats.

Recently lovingly restored, it's now one of the largest marine lakes in the UK! Another great spot for those who like a little history with their coast, this sheltered beach, and swimming spot is overlooked by Elizabeth Castle - built on a rocky inlet, Elizabeth Castle has defended Jersey for 300 years (add a trip to the castle via the amphibious Castle Ferry or walk out along the causeway at low tide).

Havre des Pas

Havre des Pas

Another beach spot close to town, Havre des Pas beach has a handy location and is close to the centre of St Helier (the capital of the island, as such this bustling town, is great pit-stop to pick up provisions en-route to the sea). With a stark art deco-style pool, this beach has a unique character at high or low tide. There is easy access on foot to this popular beach and the pool and the sea here are safe for swimmers so it's a great spot to bring the whole family or those who want the city’s bars and restaurants only a 15 minute walk away after soaking up the sun.

St Ouen's Bay

Feel the power of Atlantic waves, St Ouen's beach is a natural playground for surfers and adrenaline seekers. Home to Jersey Surfboard Club, one of the oldest surfing clubs in Europe, come and learn why Jersey surfers return here again and again. For those whose passion is exploring the coast on foot, the strong winds and big waves make for an exceptional backdrop for coastal walks whatever the season. Strong currents make this beach hazardous at times, so make sure you stick to the flagged zones!

Bonne Nuit

Bonne Nuit

Bonne Nuit is a small natural harbour where small fishing boats come to shore. There is space here to play in the sand, enjoy a bite to each or just catch some sun, but unfortunately, it is not ideal for swimming. The Bonne Nuit Beach Café does have an excellent reputation for serving up some seriously good food with a seriously beautiful view! Anglers will enjoy the sea fishing opportunities at this beach, you can cast a long line out from the harbour walls and feel the sun on your cheeks as you wait for a bite from wrasse, bass, and the occasional garfish!

Bouley Bay

Bouley Bay

A winding hill leads down to a steep pebble beach with deep water for competent swimmers. The bay is home to one of Jersey’s scuba-diving schools, Bouley Bay Dive Centre, for those who want to take their swimming to the next level, but for those of you content with a shallower pool you'll find many rockpools on Bouley Bay to get to know the local marine life a little better! Nestled on the north coast this bay is located next to the tallest cliffs on the island which stand striking at a height of 400 feet. All that have navigated the winding roads to access Bouley Bay have found the trip worthwhile - this really is a beautiful spot.

Greve de Lecq

Greve de Lecq

If St Brelade's Bay is the southerly staple of any Jersey beach guide, then Grève de Lecq is the must-visit spot of the north. The most popular of the north coast beaches, Grève de Lecq's sheltered sands and rock pools are ideal for families but lose the sun in the late afternoon (not necessarily a bad thing for those with skin sensitive to the sun!). Visitors also praise the brilliant stretch of coast path which lines this beach. With excellent cafés and local pubs close by, this beach is ideal to visit early in the morning, so you can get the most of the sun during the day and then head into food heaven for a relaxing evening as the sun winds its way back down to the horizon line.

Plemont

A pristine sandy cove reachable by a long flight of steps (a theme here in Jersey - but it keeps us strong!), where the intrepid are rewarded with a stunning natural playground of rock pools, sea caves and an excellent beach café perched on the cliffs. For those of you who want a bit of natural drama with your beach visit, this is the spot. The cliffs surrounding the beach give Plemont a distinct character and it's a fantastic spot for landscape photographers. While the sea is calm safe swimming abounds, and then the waves pick up Plemont turns into a surfers' paradise. Beware - the beach is completely covered at high tide, so be sure to check the tide times before you head out to avoid disappointment!

Rozel Bay

Rozel Bay

This beach offers natural beauty and heaps of charm. The bay is lined by a small fishing village with beach huts and harbour side cottages, Rozel is more of a fishing harbour than a place to swim, but is a great spot for those with young children who want some space to roam around and build sandcastles, be sure to check the tide times to ensure the tide is out when you arrive. Rozel offers brilliant vistas towards France. For those who prefer their dining nice and casual the Hungry Man harbour side beach kiosk will have something for you too. Similar to Bonne Nuit, at high tide the harbour offers anglers a great spot for a few hours of very enjoyable sea fishing.

This popular beach with an excellent beach cafe is pebbly at first but sandy at low tide when the water stays shallow for some way out, making it a great spot for a little ones' first paddle! East-facing, Archirondel loses the sun in the late afternoon but leaves many hours in the morning and early afternoon for beach fun. Archirondel beach has a fantastic focal point - built on a rocky outcrop in St Catherine's Bay in 1792, Archirondel Tower is a former garrison for artillery soldiers.

Green Island

A locals’ favourite, this sheltered south-facing beach at the most southerly point on the island is a real sun trap! A hub for activities, Green Island is where rock climbers, sandcastle builders, and rockpoolers unite. When the tide goes out it heads a long way on its journey, so take care with the swift incoming tide and pick times close to high water to enjoy swimming or paddling. The car park can fill up quickly on sunny days, so if you're travelling with a young family make sure you get there early to grab a convenient spot close to the beach.
