Sand and Sea


Jersey has 50 miles of shoreline and 12 major beaches and has some of the largest tidal flows in the world. Care must be exercised when bathing or exploring the rocks. 

From mid May to the end of September, three bays St. Ouen, St. Brelade, and Plemont are patrolled by beach lifeguards. The patrolled areas for swimming are marked with red and yellow flags. The flagged areas are  moved throughout the day due to the tides and will be advised to move into the new areas if necessary. If conditions are dangerous and unsuitable for swimming, red flags will be flown. There is a also a guard at West Park but the area is not patrolled.  Please ask for advice if in doubt.
