A Memorable Place

St Brelade's bay is a charming mix of everything seaside from deckchairs to fabulous dining complemented by Jersey's most ancient of landmarks and rich history.


Steeped in history

St Brelade's bay is steeped in history. You can just imagine the ancient sea farers coming and going in their tiny boats into this sheltered and most beautiful sandy cove. At the south western end of the bay you'll find St Brelade's Church - one of the 12 ancient parish churches in Jersey. Next door is one of the few surviving medieval chapels in the Channel Islands, the Fisherman's Chapel which dates back to the 12th Century. Guests' love to wander down to the chapel, it's a perfect place to escape the sun and enjoy some quiet reflection.

Not far, just down St Aubin's hill is the parish hall of St Brelade. It was originally the railway station and Terminus Hotel at the western end of the Jersey Railway. This area is a great place to visit, here you'll find many cafes and bars.

Toward the east is Ouaisne, pronounced Way Nay by the locals, this area has a legendary connection with smuggling, the local tavern is actually called “Old Smugglers Inn”. This delightful beach adjoins St Brelade's bay and is accessible on a lower tide by foot. It's a wonderful walk past the rocky headland towards Ouaisne common, here the habitat is home to many wild birds.

You'll see a Martello tower, this iconic fortress was built in 1790 as a defence from the French.

Another unspoiled bay is Beauport which is nestled around the headland towards the west from St Brelade's bay. Often paddle boarders meander around by sea to this nearby quiet cove. There is a fairly steep path from the top which often deters crowds. Because it is sheltered it is an ideal location for families. Buckets and spades, kite flying and paddle boarding are all common place here in St Brelade's bay.

St Ouen's is just a short drive away from St Brelade's bay. This is the wild west of sorts, with surfing being the most popular activity on this five mile stretch of beach.
