Greve de Lecq has always been a favourite with visitors and locals alike, and straddles the two parishes of St. Mary and St. Ouen, each of whom lay claim to its dazzling yellow sands and surrounding verdant green hillsides! Situated in the north west of the island Greve de Lecq has an advantage over its south coast rivals in that the tide here never goes too far out, making it a super option for swimming or just splashing in the waves on a hot day. The bay also offers plenty of options for refreshment, making it a great choice for a stop around lunchtime. The two beach cafes and two pubs each offer a wide range of drinks, snacks and tasty meals.
Just uphill from the beach, curious visitors will find Greve de Lecq Barracks, dating back from 1810 and built as a home to garrison troops tasked with defending this bay from French attack. While access inside the barracks is not permitted, visitors are free to explore the parade ground and exterior.
Greve de Lecq offers plenty of parking and is served by the number 9 Liberty Bus Route. Well marked cliff path walks link Greve (as it is affectionately known by locals) to Plemont and Devils Hole. Public toilets are available on the beach front.
