Bonne Nuit

Located in the centre of the island's north coast, Bonne Nuit is a small fishing harbour which is an ideal place for a quiet sunbathe or a picnic, but not the best for swimming.

Because it is north facing, the best spots lose the sun as it begins to drop below the high cliffs behind, only to return close to sunset on summer evenings. The cliffs provide shelter from all but onshore breezes. Such sand, as is uncovered at low tide, is occupied by small fishing boats and their ropes.

Bonne Nuit has passed the European Imperative Standard for bathing water quality in 2011.

How to get there:

Given the bay's relative isolation, Route 4 offers a good service all year round. For full details please visit

Additional Information:

Public toilets available.
Bathing Safety:
Not ideal for bathing but competent swimmers will enjoy a dip at high tide.
Water and beach sports:
A good place to launch a small boat.
An excellent beach café.
Rarely becomes busy but parking can be a problem.
