In Jersey, you’re never more than ten minutes from the sea. From the golden sandy bays of the south, the Atlantic waves of the west coast and the sheltered coves and hidden rock pooling spots of the north and east, Jersey’s beaches are your playground to explore. The island’s personality changes from coast to coast, so grab your beach gear and find yourself an ideal spot to revitalise and recharge.

Jersey beaches in the north.

The wild and beautiful north coast where soaring cliffs tower over sheltered bays and windblown seascapes, stark in contrast to Jersey’s southern shores but no less breathtaking.  Discover the north and uncover its hidden secrets.

Jersey beaches in the south.

Serene, sloping beaches with silky smooth sand make up the Southern shores, with fun family activities and safe swimming. The crescent of St. Aubin’s Bay spans from St. Helier town centre to the fishing village of St. Aubin. Explore the length of this golden stretch of sand and find the perfect place to unwind.

St. Brelade’s Bay is one of the island’s most popular, loved by visitors for its golden sand and safe swimming. On the doorstep of the island’s capital St. Helier, Jersey’s southern bays make for easy access. Head out south to the promenades and sweeping sands of St. Aubin’s Bay or explore the hidden gem of Belcroute Bay or take a short walk out of town to Jersey’s Victorian jewel The Lido at Harve des Pas.

Jersey beaches in the east.

The east of the island is where the sun rises above the French coastline, giving life to land and sea. With a range of beaches, harbours and ancient castles, the island’s east coast can be the ideal location to base yourself during your stay.

Long stretches of fine golden sand, pebbled coves and tiny fishing harbours jutting out into turquoise waters; Jersey’s east coast is a beautiful corner of the island. From here you can take in a cloudless view over the French coast on a good day.  It even has a lunar landscape at low-tide, that has to be seen to be believed.

Jersey beaches in the west.

Jersey’s west is a landscape of sweeping golden shores, crashing surf and grassy dunes.  If you seek adventure you will find it all here – windswept walks, refreshing swims and awesome swell.  Bask on sun-soaked slopes or hire a VW campervan for the day and BBQ like a beach bum.

St. Ouen's Bay.

With its sun kissed headland and soft sandy beaches, Jersey’s western shoreline offers up some of the island’s most magical locations. The long stretch of golden sand of St Ouen’s Bay with views over the Atlantic Ocean makes this expansive beach one of Jersey’s most iconic.
