A number of public toilets at strategic locations on the beach side of the Five Mile Road.
The beach is exposed to the Atlantic along its entire length and the surf can be magnificent - which is fine for those who are experienced, but poor swimmers should take care. Even the most accomplished can be swept off their feet by the currents, so obey the warning signs and flags, take careful note of which sections of beach are restricted.
Water and beach sports:
Surfing to match anywhere in the world, windsurfing, sand yachting and kite flying. Motor racing takes place several times during the summer. For details of water sport activities in this area and on other beaches, visit our Sights and Activities section.
There is a large café at Le Braye, several restaurants and pubs in various locations along the bay, ice cream vans in season at the most popular spots and other beach kiosks.
Often the Island's busiest beach, but it rarely shows because there is so much room and such extensive car parking.
