    So beautiful especially in the sunshine. Gardens with lots of seats and gorgeous flowers behind the beach.

    A great experience, lovely walk from the shore to the lighthouse.

    You cant go in the lighthouse so when you get to the island there isnt anything to do except take in the views.

    There is free parking just up the road from the causeway, there is also no cost to walk over to the island. The walk across the causeway is short, only about 10 mins, lots of small rockpools to see along the way.

    We found it difficult to find info on when you could actually start to walk across online, everywhere tells you when its High Tide and when is Low tide and obviously you know you can walk over at Low tide but it doesnt tell you when the causeway is first suitable to walk across...

    So basically if you look up online when its set for High tide and Low tide you can start walking across approx in the middle of these 2 times.. and on the reverse of that between Low tide and High tide you need to be back on shore before halfway.

    Low tide can be roughly between 1-3metres water height.. high tide over 10metres.. the causeway walkway is 5.5metres high.. so as i said your looking roughly halfway between high-low tides as to when it will be available to walk across. (These arnt exact but there or there abouts)

    All in all a great little way to spend a couple of hours!

    Lovely old church and the fisherman’s chapel should not be missed. There are informative leaflets available to tell you what to look out for.

    Visiting Reg’s garden was one of the surprise highlights of our trip to Jersey. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but we loved it. It was fun and really quite beautiful in a whimsical way. Tremendous fir kids parties

    Picture says it all. Lovely. Some nice walks around the bay with great views. Worth the walk to the beach with fine sand and clear water.

    St Aubin's was used for filming some of the scenes of the TV series Bererac in the 1980s and 90s which put it on the tourist map.

    It is still popular with visitors, with the old town around the harbour. It is worth exploring the narrow cobbled streets lined with old houses.

    Being close to St Helier, the beach is always busy and there is even a tourist road train running along the front betweeen St Helier and St Aubins. Alternatively there is a frequent bus service.

    Fort Aubin is built on a tidal island in the bay and can be reached at low tide by a causeway. It is possible to wander round the outside but the Fort itself isn't open.

    Your coaches and buses aren't allowed to park by the harbour - a bonus!

    Lovely beach. Sun trap with soft sand. There are a lot of steps down to the beach, but I think it's worth it. There's a car park up by the pub and and there's also a cafe on the other side of the beach. The cafe was lovely and had a great view.

    The beach was quite quiet when we visited. Not sure if that's usual, but the steps down might put some people off.

    A very interesting place, so pleased that we made time to go. As part of the WW2 history of the islands it is a must. Especially to understand how quickly the site was set up and armed. The site is bigger than we expected and we spent quite a lot of time there. The information boards are mostly in good condition and informative. The amount of preserved equipment is impressive and again most is in good condition. Underfoot it is not flat but quite a lot of the site is accessible. As a bonus there are wonderful views from this coastal site and some interesting flora.

    A beautiful Memorial Park
    Be prepared to climb and wear non slip shoes
    If you get to the top turn right and a little way along the road you will see steps which will lead you back down and there are railings all the way to the bottom

    I loved this path that took me from Corbiere back into St Helier because there don’t seem to be many traffic free paths to walk Jersey and the roads are quite busy and narrow. There are frequent benches to sit and rest and on a hot day the tree lined shade is appreciated.

    Sitting next to the St Brelades parish church this old chapel has some fascinating wall paintings and lovely stained glass. Definitely worth a visit.

    Excellent value for money. We were two hours or more walking around these tunnels. It gives you a taste of what life was like during those very sad times. We are so glad that we went, it was a real eye opener.
    The staff were very helpful on the ticket entry.

    On this visit we did not cross to the lighthouse but instead had a wander around the defences built by the Germans. They are impressive and well worth a visit.
    Not open on day we visited but still enjoyable.
    The large flowering bank of Hottentot fig below one of the emplacements were spectacular.

    When the tide is out it is easy to cross to the fort. Once you are there the views all around are lovely. It is a pity the doors into the bunker are locked and no one seems to tidy up the litter or repair the benches, but as it is free to visit and Jersey is so poor (lol) I suppose they cannot afford it.
