Le Braye is a beach of Golden Sand and one of the more sheltered places to sunbath in St Ouens Bay. The views of Corbiere lighthouse and La Rocco tower add to the natural splendour and provide a stunning backdrop to an already stunning natural beach.
A favourite with families of all ages there are showering and foot washing facilities and easy access to a clean beach which is actually a Marine Conservation Society Recommended beach.
This beach also has reminders of the German Occupation if you look for them and a gun emplacement can be seen built into the wall when you are on the beach.
A popular beach with surfers and boogie boarders as well as those who just want to have fun in the waves. There is a lifeguard presence in the season and the lifeguards are only to happy to give advice if you have any doubts about water safety.
Le Braye is a good place to park if you want to walk the length of St Ouens bay and there are many places to stop for refreshment on your way to Le Tacque.
There is a friendly shack which is actually a German fortification from world war two which is now used to store water sports equipment. You can hire surf boards and boogie boards here as well as wet suits and even deck chairs and children’s beach toys.
The Cafe can get very busy during the summer season and this is also a very nice stop for cyclists and motorcyclists you will often see motorbikes parked outside the Le Braye beach cafe.
Soft sand, easy parking and access to the beach mean you will always find lots of locals making the most of their days off at Le Braye.
