Corbiere light house252 viewsThe coast of Jersey’s south western corner is rather rugged and can be extremely dangerous for shipping, although it wasn’t until 1874 that Corbière lighthouse was first lit. The lighthouse was the first in the British Isles to be built of reinforced concrete and its light is visible for 18 miles.During the earlier storms at the beginning of the year waves actually broke over the lighthouse which is approx 25 metres .
We were extremely lucky to be able to paddle round the lighthouse on a calm day.

Sunset over Grève de Lecq158 viewsThe most accessible and most popular of the north coast beaches. The beach faces north and the high surrounding cliffs mean that it loses the sun in late afternoon. It is pleasantly sheltered except from northerly winds, which are rare in summer.
