St Brelade’s Bay

The wide sandy beach of St Brelade’s Bay has been the most popular beach in Jersey for visitors for decades. It is regularly voted as one of the best beaches in the United Kingdom by Tripadvisor users.

The sand is golden and soft and the waters are calm making it one of the best swimming beaches in Jersey. Cafes, bars, hotels  and chic restaurants line the promenade and there is a small park with a waterfall behind the main beach road.



Oyster Box is one of the best seafood restaurants in Jersey. In summer months the outside tables overlooking the sandy beach below are very popular, bookings advised.

Right next door  on the beachfront is it’s more informal dining option, The Crab Shack with a cantina style menu featuring seafood as well as good vegan and vegetarian options.

The Pizza Express on St Brelade’s Bay must surely have the best location of any of its branches in the UK.!

At the other end of the bay is one of our favorites. serving good value, healthy and delicious food al fresco. A friendly welcome with an amazing view of the bay.




St Brelade’s Bay is a great beach for water sports and beach activities.

There are a wide range of fun activities from banana boat rides to kayaking. Coasteering is good in this area nd RIB rides are always fun!

From St Brelade’s Bay you can walk over the path to neighbouring Ouaisne Bay and from there follow he cliiff path over the bay to Portelet Bay. The steps back up are steep so this is not a suitable bay for visitors with mobility issues.  Alternatively, take some photos at the pictureque Fisherman’s Chapel at the other end of the bay, Then over the hill behind and down the steps to the small but beautifully formed Beauport Bay.



There is plenty of pay to park spaces right by the bay, however in July and August at weekends you need to arrive early to guarantee a space. Lots of buses from town will drop you right on the  bay.
