St Quen's Bay
This west coast bay is where you'll find the rolling waves and due to the mild climate there's always an opportunity for surfing. Corbiere Lighthouse stands at the far end of the bay and is accessible via a causeway at low tide. This is a very exposed Jersey beach which makes it more popular with surfers than sunbathers.
