Corbiere to Portelet - Sunday Stroll #3

Cliff / Beach Walk

sunny 13 °C

This walk will provide you with the most stunning views you have ever seen in Jersey. A combination of cliffs, headland and unspoiled beaches that will make your heart stop.


Today, I will only describe you the beaches. You will find four as you walk which will satisfy the most demanding needs.

If you are looking for that special hide-away place with your other half, Beauport beach is the one one to go. Its golden sand and unique position gives you the chance to get the perfect tan you always dreamed of. Its long trek down a very hilly path stops it for being overcrowded so you can be sure you won't be interrupted in your romantic picnic.


If on the contrary, you have got a family or just having a day out with friends, St. Brelade and Ouaisne beach will be the ones to choose. They are divided by huge stones which will connect the two beaches when the tide is out. Their vast space will give you the opportunity to build a sand castle, play beach volleyball or just relax in your deck chair. Plus if you like watersports, you can try paddle boarding, kayaking or scuba diving. The south aspect and direct sun through all afternoon give you great shelter and the most astonishing sunsets. So if you are thinking of having a family or friends day out, you find this is the spot.


Some of us like the secluded beaches where nothing touristic goes on. If you are that type of person, Portelet bay would be your choice. Despite it has got a restaurant at the top of the hill which is always crowded by locals and tourists, its beach is isolated from them. As Beauport, you need to climb down some steps. However, you won't be dissappointed. Its stunning views of Janvrin Tomb will let you stay all day long.
