Discover: St Brelade's Bay29/03/16
Which part of the Island is this?
Located in the parish of St Brelade, in the south west of Jersey. It’s only a short drive from the shops and amenities of e Quennevais, but nestled at the foot of the steep La Marquanderie Hill it feels like nicely tucked away. Along with neighbouring bays Ouaisne and Beauport, St Brelade’s Bay specialises in golden sand and clear waters. The seafront is lined with hotels, bars and restaurants, with houses and flats behind. It has a distinctly holiday feel in summer when it’s thronging with tourists and beach-lovers.
St Brelades is the only parish to border only one other parish, St. Peter. It’s also the second-largest parish by surface area, covering 11% of the total land surface of the island.St Brelade’s Church has one of the very few surviving medieval chapels, the Fisherman's Chapel, situated directly next to the main church building.
What are the main attractions?
St Brelades bay has so much to offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
In the summer, grab a sun lounger and pick your spot for the day. Or if you fancy something a bit more active why not grab a kayak or paddleboard and paddle your way round the bay. If you prefer your activities on dry land, try trampolining or volleyball.
On cooler days, at low tide you can walk across the beach to Ouaisne and back - perhaps stopping for a pint at The Smugglers! Or Visit the fisherman's chapel at the end of the bay which features beautiful medieval paintings. Or you could just eat and drink...
Food Glorious Food…
What do you fancy? St Brelade’s Bay has a restaurant for everyone! Chinese, Italian, seafood, fusion, afternoon tea, take your pick...
Treat yourself to breakfast with a sea view at the L'Horizon Hotel, hit the Wayside Cafe for crab sandwiches and ice cream at lunchtime, then dine al fresco at the Oyster Box for diner. Perhaps not all on the same day.
When it comes to restaurants, you really are spoilt for choice.
What's the beach like?
Voted 3rd best beach in the UK by the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, and and it’s obvious why! The golden sand, palm trees and clear blue sea bring a little bit of the Caribbean to Jersey. The south facing bay means the beach enjoys hours of summer sunshine so you can spend a whole day down there. And in the winter months, it’s the perfect place to get blown away while walking the dog.
Where are the nearest schools?
For those with young children, Mont Nicolle or La Moye primary school (which also has a nursery) are the closest parish schools. The nearest state secondary school is Le Quennevais, with the main colleges under half an hour away.
