Plemont Beach - Jersey

Plemont Beach is a secluded cove on the northern shore of Jersey. It is well known for its network of caves which can be explored by visitors and there is also a good, sandy beach, with some large rocks. The beach is sheltered from the wind and an excellent location for sunbathing whilst admiring the delightful views of the rocky cliffs and the deep blue sea.

There are plenty of rock pools for children to discover and play in. Most of the time the sea is safe for swimming, but it can become difficult in choppy conditions, at which times it is only suitable for strong swimmers. When the waves are stronger there can be excellent surfing conditions. There is a lifeguard during the summer months.

There is a small car park above the beach with a long descent via steps down to the beach. There are also toilets next to the car park and a café that is said to be one of the best places to hang out on the island. If this car park is full, then there is a larger car park at the top of the cliff, although it is a longer walk down to the beach.
