Greve de Lecq Beach

Greve de Lecq Beach - Jersey
© DS Pugh and licensed for reuse under this Licence

The sandy sheltered beach of Grève de Lecq is the most popular on Jersey’s north shore. With high cliffs to either side it is sheltered from the wind most of the time. The downside is it tends to lose the late afternoon sun.

There is a large cave that runs all the way through the headland on the eastern side of the beach. At the other end are the foundations of an abandoned harbour wall.

Fantastic family beach

Great beach for families, lots of food/drink/ice cream choice, all excellent btw. Tide doesn’t go out far and is manned by RNLI Lifeguards during the summer months.

What did we get wrong?
