“Beautiful, scenic lighthouse and causeway”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

A beautiful lighthouse situated on a rocky outcrop off the South-West coast of Jersey.

If you go to visit, try to time it when the tide is out so that you can walk across the causeway to the lighthouse itself (takes about 10 minutes). You can't enter the lighthouse but it is a nice walk (although a note of caution, it is down a reasonably steep path which you'll have to go back up again!)

We were over on the lighthouse when the siren sounded to warn us the the tide was on it's way in - you don't want to hang around either - 30 minutes later the water was lapping up against the edge of the causeway. A very picturesque spot worth visiting

“Rugged and untamed”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Go at low tide if you want to visit the lighthouse but go at high tide if you really want to see the power of the sea crashing against this outpost on the south-Westerly tip of island.

“Stunning”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Lovely place to visit. Stunning views and you get a great feeling of history here with the gun placements still around.

“Wow!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had seen black and white posters of a lighthouse in places like Athena and had no idea it was on Jersey. What a location and what a place!
We arrived just after lunch and the tide was out which meant we could walk across the causeway to the lighthouse. It was absolutely stunning! We scrambled over rocks, looked in rock pools, took many photographs. we were so impressed with what we saw, we decided to find out about tide times so that we could go back when the tide was in. We returned the next evening and yet again were simply astounded by what we saw. It is difficult to put into words but the place is pure magic and we could have stayed there for hours just watching. An absolute MUST VISIT location!

“Exhilerating”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We wandered down to the edge of the walkway, didn't go across to the lighthouse as the tide was coming in! Beautiful views.
