St. Saviour is the only one to be virtually landlocked, having only a small piece of access to the sea at Le Dicq and it borders five other parishes. It is considered as an extension to town but also has lots of lush greenery.
St Clement contains the long beaches and rocky coastlines that make up Green Island and La Hocq. Many an hour can be spent on low tide walking through this rocky moonlike terrain and as the evening draws in you can see the sunsets which are amazing from these beaches.
Green Island is a small island off the coast of St. Clement. It is situated near the sea shore and is accessible at low tide but visitors to the Island need to be careful not to be cut off by the incoming tide. The island has a grassy surface and is predominantly clay surrounded by rocks. In recent times efforts have been made to preserve the Island by the construction of walls. The beach is very popular with tourists and the small crop of rocks on the beach are well explored and loved by children.
Le Hocq is a headland where there is a round tower which was built as a fortification against the French in the 17th/18th century. It is uninhabited, apart from some birds who tend to flock in and around it. The rest of the beach, stretching east, is sandy, but with many rockpools. Just below Le Hocq Tower, west of the groyne of boulders, is a more pleasant sandy beach, which stretches round the headland to a very stony stretch of beach which reaches as far as Rocqueberg -
La Rocque is great for sunbathing at low tide, great for swimming at high tide, with protection from the westerly winds. It is one of the best localities from which to view waders and seabirds as well as visible migration during spring and autumn.
