St Ouens Bay - Fine, gold sand covering almost 5 miles of the west coast of Jersey , with the Atlantic waves providing some of the best surfing in Europe. Because the beach is exposed it's not so good for sunbathing. But if you enjoy beach activities this is the best beach in Jersey. Food & Drink There are plenty of cafes and beach kiosks all along St Ouens Bay. However, our recommendation is The Line Up , a mobile van, opposite the golf course, serving good cheap sandwiches, burgers and drinks. In the summer they do a BBQ so you can take your freshly barbecued food and eat it on the beach just yards away. Parking There are plenty of public car parks along the length of the bay, as well as roadside parking when they fill up. Surfing St Ouens Bay has some strong rip tides and currents, so take notice of the flags and warning signs and don't swim in the restricted areas. Whether you are an experienced surfer or would like to try it for the first time the first contact should be The Jersey Surfboard Club who will be pleased to advise you on local conditions and recommend surf schools. Swimming At all times be aware of the flags and warning signs and don't swim in the restricted areas or in isolated parts of the bay. During summer months the beach is patrolled by life-guards, if in doubt ask. That's why they are there. Sourced with thanks from Jersey.typepad.com/st_ouens_bay/ St Ouens Bay is one of Jersey's finest beaches, and if you've come to the Island to surf, look no further. It is possible to hire surfboards at La Braye, the Watersplash and Sands.

Expert tuition is also available, so you can learn to surf in safety. However, St Ouens Bay is often battered by a heavy swell which can make bathing very hazardous. As a result, lifeguards are constantly on duty and will position flags to indicate the safest zone away from rips and undertows. There is plenty of parking along the five-mile stretch of St Ouens Bay and refreshments can be bought at numerous places, including La Braye, and at La Pulente, the Watersplash, Sands and La Saline. Also, the sand dunes are just a stone's throw away. Served by bus route 12a. Sourced with thanks from Thisisjersey.com
