Portelet Bay is one of Jersey’s best kept secrets, nestled into the south west coast of the island. Portelet Beach is the Marine Conservation Society Recommended Beach of 2014 and once you get the chance to explore it for yourself, you’ll be able to see why.
The island is off the beaten track, meaning that even in the height of summer where tourists flock to the island’s glowing coasts, this bay will still not be busy and you’ll still be able to relax and enjoy the bay’s tranquil beauty.
The beach is covered with golden sand yet at low tide, rock pools are revealed just waiting to be explored. You may be able to walk to L’ile au Guerdain and see La Tour Janvrin, where it is said that the tomb of Phillipe Janvrin, a local sea captain who was banished from the island, lies.
