Just coming to the end of ten days isolation staying in the Sergeants Suite at Greve de Lecq barracks and have to say I am very impressed. It was extremely comfortable with loads of space. The kitchen has been set up lovely with everything you could need. We really appreciated the log burner which kept us nice and toasty! The quality, finish and attention to detail were excellent. Best of all was the lovely Emma Oxenham who really made us feel welcome and was quick to help in many ways. We will definitely be returning but hopefully this time we will be able to explore the area without having to self isolate!

Free car parking just a short walk away. Cafe bar and restaurant just behind the beach, public toilets and an outdoor shower just above the beach. Life guards on duty.
Lovely long crescent shaped sandy beach with plenty of room

My husband, two daughters (aged 3&9) and I decided to walk this route today. It was very beautiful and we saw lots of pretty wild flowers and plenty of bird life. The actual walk was quite steep in areas and there were many stairs. Fine for us, but a little tiring for our 3 year old. However, lots of benches to rest along the way! It took us about 75 minutes to complete. Be sure not to miss Plemont beach at the end of the walk. It's not signposted all that well. It would be a shame for tourists to miss the magic of Plemont.

We found this bay by accident and it turned out to be our favourite beach on our holiday. Plenty parking, toilets and safe beach with lifeguards.
Best of all however was Colleen's Cafe - excellent food & prices. Would certainly return.

Beautiful Beach which we stopped at during our costal work. Probably the best beach on the north coast. Very pretty tranquil relaxing location. With historic water mill and barracks also located here and a very nice cafe. This stop was the highlight of my coastal walk. Definitely a undiscovered gem for me.

A lovely sandy cove with a harbour, rock pools, safe bathing, a selection of places to eat and drink, free parking, good ice-cream from the kiosk. What more do you need for a great day at the beach?

This is a popular lunch stop for coach tours, as there is a large cafe car/coach park. There are two main cafes in the cove are not up to the standard of other Jersey cafes. Coffee in the one nearest to the car park is served from thermos flasks, and was pretty awful. The further cafe is slightly better.

Park near the cafe and go back up the lane towards St Ouen before turning off right up a steep track onto the cliffs. Most of the walk is along the cliffs, but there are about three steep descents to small stream which tumble towards the sea followed by ascents. Lovely views over cliffs, bays and the sea. No dangerous bits. Several well placed benches. Time for walk 75 minutes if you keep going steadily.
At Plemont bay we hurried back up the lane to Portinfer (another 20 minutes), where we caught the bus back to St Helier.

Greve de Lecq beach is a small but beautiful semi-circle of clean golden sand nestling between two headlands on the north west coast. Guarded by a Martello Tower and a granite built Army Barracks from the Napoleonic War era, the beach is used by the local fishing community to launch small boats to gather the harvest from the sparkling blue seas. It also lends itself well to family groups and offers rock pools to explore and safe bathing with a lifeguard station to hand. A hotel with bar/restaurant, a converted water mill and a couple of other cafes provide varied menus suitable for all. Plenty of parking and public toilets, too. An idyllic spot for a day at the beach but also links to the coastal footpaths.

Please do not let your trip to Jersey pass without visiting Greve de Lecq. It has a wonderful safe and clean beach, great eating facilities and wonderful coastal and countryside walks. There is no better way to pass the day than to sit on the beach and watch the world go by. Loungers, parasols and snacks or meals are available and every person you meet is friendlier than the next. Ample parking and toilet facilities. Can't recommend it highly enough. A unique beautiful place.
