St Brelade’s Bay sits on the south coast of Jersey and is one of our most popular beaches. With clear water and soft golden sand it is easy to see why this sheltered beach is so popular. Busiest in the middle of the bay you will see the young and beautiful tanning their bodies here. If you are looking for tranquility here is always a place where you can find peace and quite on the eastern part of the beach towards Oaisne.
There is a lovely promenade where you can walk along the sea wall. The sea wall was built by the Nazi German occupying forces during WW2 and you can still sea some fortification at the Eastern end of the wall. Before the wall was built St Brelade’s bay was sand dunes as seen in the postcard above.
There is lots to do on the beach for all ages choose from the Trampolines, Volleyball Nets, Banana Boat rides and Pedalos. Or go to the water-sports concession and try Kayaking or Windsurfing or go for a ride on a speedboat.
There are excellent pace to eat for all tastes ages and budgets. The most note able being, The Crab Shack, The Oyster Box, Pizza Express, The Mid Bay Cafe and The Wayside.
St Brelades Bay also has hotels close to the beach so you never have to leave the Hotel L’Horizon sits right on the sea wall and is a four star luxury hotel. There are also less expensive place to stay such as the Beau Rivage and Family run Hotels such as the St Brelades bay Hotel.
St Brelade’s bay is a great place to swim and there are lifeguards on duty during the season the beach has a gentle slope so you will not quickly get out of your depth.
So popular is this beach with holiday makers and locals you may struggle to find a parking space by mid day. There is a bus service and even if you have to walk down the hill to get here it is always worth the effort to spend a day on St Brelades Bay.
