Over the years it has been enlarged and renovated, but you can still see some of the more original church items, including the wall paintings, in the Fisherman's Chapel. The Fisherman's Chapel has been a seat... More

Stopped here on my Harley Davidson tour - Don't miss the fisherman's chapel next door... The roof of the interior of the main church is quite extraordinary and it is a heck of a view from the graveyard, across the bay.

Loved the Fishermans Chapel which is just next door to the main church. It is still used for services today. Interesting to see the old murals which can be found on the walls and ceilings. The church itself is nice to look round, it is obviously well used and looked after by the local community. There is a prayer tree... More

Interesting local history attached to this small church and adjacent chapel. Setting is really lovely right against the beach and hillside.

Beautifully kept and looked after. Visit the Fishermans Chapel there for a serene moment. Interesting graves from island life and soldiers from both sides in the war. Amazing position overlooking St Brelades Bay. Use the 12 or 12A bus from the bus station in St Helier as this drops you right outside (4 an hour in the summer).

This is a calm oasis in a most beautiful place. From the moment I walked in I was in awe of the the beautiful architecture but also the sense of spirituality and a sense of centuries of prayer and devotion. The adjacent chapel with the frescos was also beautiful and restful.

Lovely old church within the area of St Brelade Bay with adjoining fishermen chapel. Appears to be well used by the local community.

This little church on the coast at St Brelades Bay is a perfect place to go for some peace and reflection. The murals in the Fisherman's Chapel next door date back to the 13th Century and are well worth a look.
