Bouley Bay is a tiny harbour on the north coast flanked by green cliffs with a sandy shelf descending into deep blue waters. A rambling slope winds its way down towards the bay to reveal a deep anchorage, and it’s the home of scuba diving in Jersey. The pebble beach shelves steeply into deep waters best enjoyed by stronger swimmers. It is the perfect spot to explore our underwater world with trained Scuba Diving professionals. Jutting out over the bay is Fort Leicester, a medieval fort with a modern interior that can be rented from Jersey Heritage for a quirky self-catered stay.
