The Best Beaches in Jersey......

Born and raised on this little rock called Jersey you can’t help but fall in love with the sea and the coastline. We are so lucky to be able to enjoy & explore such an incredible amount of beaches and with the huge tides we get, the coastline becomes pretty unique. Every day can be a beach day, but you need to know what the wind + the tide + the swell are up to, in order to help make your choice of beach the best!

Our Favourite Beaches in Jersey

Below are (in our opinion) the best beaches in Jersey: some are easy to find and well known, others may be slightly trickier… you may need a boat (Jersey Seafaris!), but one thing for certain they are all FANTASTIC!!!

St.Ouen’s Beach

5 mile (ish) stretch of beach, great surf and THE place to watch sunsets!

Plemont

Absolutely stunning beach on the North West corner of Jersey. Best accessed at low tides, the caves are incredible and why not take a shower under the waterfall!

L’ECREVIERE SANDBANK

These incredible sandbanks only appear a few times a year on the lowest tides of the year. They are absolutely spectacular! They are just to the South East of Les Ecrehous about halfway to France and can only be reached by boat……….. we run trips there though!!

Portelet Bay

Quieter beach on the South coast with beautiful views and a fantastic cafe on the beach selling woodfired pizzas (Portelet Bay Cafe)….ideal combo! The iconic Janvrin’s Tomb in the middle of the bay makes for the perfect instagram snap!

LES Minquiers Sandbank

Jersey’s most Southerly beach which can only be accessed by RIB!! 12 miles South of Jersey on the low tides the sandbank appears creating a crystal clear lagoon perfect for swimming. Jersey’s version of the Maldives! Book now with Jersey Seafaris!

Beauport Bay

Another postcard perfect beach on the South coast, smaller bay and usually quiet (as all the steps seem to put people off!). This golden sandy beach is flanked by impressive pillars of Jersey granite making for an impressive vista from the top.

Greve de lecq

Smaller beach on the North coast, great in Southerly winds. The highlight has to be coasteering around the rocks to the East and finding secret beaches, hidden tunnels, and an amazing natural swimming pool!

Bouley Bay

The one beach on here that isn’t sandy, but one of the best spots for swimming no matter of the tidal height. Good pier jumping and diving too.
