“As good as it gets!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

This is one of my favourite spots on Jersey and is equally beautiful at any time of year regardless of whether the tide is in or out.

For the 6 months of the summer timetable its well served by buses in terms of both frequency and routes so, if you're up for it, you can walk the 12 or so miles from St Aubin, 10 from Corbiere or 4.5 from L'Etacq and get a bus back to your starting point.

Its well catered for in terms of places to eat - sitting outside Colleens under the protective netting that keeps the pesky seagulls at bay, is my personal favourite. There's plentiful free parking and the public loos are always clean.

If you're up for a short, steep walk - take the coastal path behind the Prince of Wales and as the gradient levels out there's a bench where you can get your breath back and enjoy the wonderful view down over the beach. Its a view I never tire of seeing and it always makes me thankful to be alive!

“Great location!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We're staying in Greve de Lecq, and couldn't be happier. The kids are playing on the beach as I write this, with their shoes off and pants rolled up, despite the cool weather.

We'll try out the "Moulin de Lecq" before we leave, because it looks so inviting. Perfect decor for fall.

Would love to be back here again someday.

“I love this bay”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

The last time I visited this gorgeous bay was 24 years ago and it was still as beautiful as I first remembered it to be. Great memories of being there with the children

“Beautiful bay,stunning situation,delightful cafe”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Over many years we have visited this most lovely part of Jersey.
The red sands and clear clean water make it a delight regardless of season.
A traditional cafe serving breakfasts,lunch and teas simply add to a delightful and unique experience

“Walked here from Plemont”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Really nice little place with an amazing beach and scenery. There were a couple of pubs and eating places. One of the pubs was the Moulin de Lecq, definitely worth visiting because of the building :-)
