Where to eat on the beach in Jersey.
From bacon butties at a beach shack to high quality, fresh local seafood steps from the sand, Jersey is one of the best places in Britain to eat beachfront.
Here are a few of our favourite ‘beachfront bites’ in Jersey.
GREEN ISLAND RESTAURANT
This has been a local favourite for years. A small and friendly bistro-style restaurant with outside tables looking out over the gorgeous beach at Green Island. Local seafood is always a good choice on the Mediterranean style menu. On a recent visit, local scallops were perfectly cooked with a sweet potato purée and samphire. In summer reservations for tables outside are essential.
Just a hop, skip and a jump from the beautiful Ouaisne Bay this is a fun, friendly place for burritos, jerk chicken burgers and a great Sri Lankan curry. It’s informal so don’t expect china plates and crystal glasses. Expect good grub and a fabulous coastal walk from/ to the adjacent St Brelade’s Bay or over the cliff to Portelet Bay. Live music in summer and you can hire a deckchair/ lounger and parasol and get your food and drink delivered to you on the beach.
Amazing location right on the seafront at St Ouen’s Bay, this is a cut above your standard beach cafe. Line-caught fish, homemade beef burgers, moules frites, great nachos, carafes of delicious Gascon wines and one of the best crab sandwiches in Jersey. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, no dinner service on Sunday.
On the slipway at La Haule on St Aubin’s Bay is this trendy beach cafe. Salad bowls, open wraps and lots of healthy food options. DJs on Sunday during summer months
PORTELET BAY CAFE
There is no doubt that Portelet Bay is one of the best beaches in Jersey and there is another reason to amber down the stairs to this lovely bay, a fantastic pizza cafe right on the sand.
Portelet Bay Cafe serves wonderful woodfired pizza as well as delicious freshly made vegan salads and local fish. Lunch and dinner only, in summer reservations strongly recommended.
