North Coast

Port Soif Bay

Port Soif, Vale

North west facing, horseshoe shaped bay with fine soft sand and rock pools. Good for swimming at high tide but quite a long walk to the sea at low tide. Nearby beach buffet and public toilets. Good access and on site parking. Dogs are banned from the beach between 1st May and 30th September.

Portinfer, Vale

Another north west facing small sandy bay next to Port Soif with sand dunes. Nearby nature reserve. Good parking but no public facilities.

Port Grat, Vale

A sandy bay but not used much by locals. Favoured by those wishing to have some solitude.


Grand Havre Bay

Le Grand Havre, Vale

A large oval shaped bay with a small boat harbour. Plenty for children to see and explore. Nearby restored Rousse Tower is worth a visit


Ladies Bay

Ladies Bay and Chouet Bay, Vale

Large north west facing bays joined end to end and with soft white sand. The adjoining L'Ancresse common has ancient dolmens to explore but beware of golf balls as this is the island's 18 hole golf course. Plenty for children to explore and there is a nearby small play park area at the Ladies Bay end. Popular with windsurfers. Beach buffet and public toilets at each end and good easy access parking.


Pembroke Bay

Pembroke & L'Ancresse Bay, Vale

North facing and the second largest bay after Vazon. Good access to the long sandy bay, backing onto the golf site. Popular with windsurfers and small visiting boats on day trips from St Peter Port. Beach buffet and nearby hotel for bar meals plus toilet facilities and large car park. Dogs are banned from the beach between 1st May and 30th September.
