Noirmont Point

A mix of past and present history

sunny 11 °C

Noirmont point is a beautiful headland located on the western side of the island. I have heard a lot about it but I never set a foot on it until now. It remains as one of the unspoilt parts of the south coast and its amazing restored bunkers and guns emplacements brings you back to the 1940s and the German occupation.
Walking through it you can't feel but moved by the continous attributes to those who perished in WWII. Its fortifications are full of history which dated from Napoleonic to today. The mix from the old and new gives this place a unique sight that noone should miss if they travel to Jersey.

What I like most about walking in Jersey is the type of people you meet and how friendly they are. There is no rush to say hello, to share your views about the weather or simply to talk about how old your dog is. There is a real feeling that you should stop on your way and share a moment or two. Despite that you bumped into lots of people while doing this walk, there is the odd place where you can sit, relax and enjoy the view of St. Aubins or Potelet Bay. I always think about sitting on those places to be able to write. Looking at the horizon and listening to the birds seems to be the best place to let your imagination go.
