Next to St Brelade on the south coast of the island is the small, picturesque and sheltered Portelet Bay. The quaint bay is a popular and wonderful place to visit and the ever changing coast-line makes it ideal for snorkelling and canoeing, which can be hired.
There is a long climb down the steps from the cliff top to Portelet beach which helps prevent Portelet Bay becoming too crowded – although once at the bottom it’s well worth it! The south facing beach is very sunny and the Marine Conservation Society Recommended Beach 2008 has lovely soft, golden sand. Portelet Bay is very safe for bathing and is a great beach for water and beach sports.
At the Old Portelet Inn you can enjoy a pint or some food whilst admiring the stunning view of Portlet Bay, and then why not enjoy an evening stroll along the interesting paths towards Noirmont Point? There is a large car park at the top of the cliff, public toilets available, but due to the steps wheel chair access is not easy.
