La Corbière Lighthouse
Discover the iconic La Corbière Lighthouse in Jersey. It’s not just the architecture of this striking white lighthouse that draws the eye. It’s also the location - towering over Jersey’s south-western corner, flanked by rocks and reached by a causeway.

Picnic with a view.
It’s one of Jersey’s most visited sites, but you can still find your own view of this local landmark. Bring a picnic and find a space on one of the benches on the headland overlooking the lighthouse or spread out a blanket and stay to watch the tide racing over the causeway at this dramatic spot where land meets sea.
Or stay for dinner.
Frame the panorama of sea and sky with dinner, lunch or just a coffee at Corbière Phare. With its mesmerising views past the lighthouse and straight out to sea, this restaurant’s spectacular setting shouldn’t be missed. Watch the ever changing backdrop of the tide’s rise and fall, experience a storm rolling in from the Atlantic, or stay for the sunset’s vivid finale, it’s up to you.

Storm watcher and sentinel, it stands through the island’s sunsets and weathers the Atlantic storms. The lighthouse of La Corbière is set on a tidal island out at sea, surrounded by dark rocks. At low tide, you can walk the causeway out to the lighthouse, past rock pools and sandy beaches to discover a part of the island only revealed at low tide. Explore, but stay alert - an alarm warns visitors when the tide is returning and it’s time to leave the causeway.
We are open all year round.

There are steps up to the lighthouse itself. The carpark and causeway are sloped in places.
The best way to get to La Corbière? We’d suggest either on foot or on a bicycle with a picnic from St. Aubin. An inland trail begins at St. Aubin and follows the track of a long-disused granite railway, climbing through tree-lined valleys to reach its peak, and the first glimpse of St. Ouen’s Bay. Save the picnic to enjoy at the end of the road with dramatic views overlooking the lighthouse and the bay.
