St Ouen

Val de la Mare

St Peter

St. Ouen

The parish is the largest parish by surface area, covering 8,341 vergees.  The bay has almost five miles of fine, gold sand, with plenty of facilities, surfing, windsurfing, sand yachting, kite flying, motor racing. It is very exposed, which makes it popular with local surfers, but less so with sunbathers. However, it can be quite treacherous here because of rip tides and strong currents and during the summer months the beach is patrolled by life-guards.  There are some great eating places along the ‘Five Mile’ road – La Pulente, Ellies, La Braye, El Tico’s, Watersplash and Big Verns, not excluding the beach kiosks and ice cream vans.  The sunsets viewed from here are the best in the world and on high tide the waves splashing over the breakwater are breath taking.

St Peter

The parish is the fourth-largest parish by surface area, covering 6,469 vergees.

St Peter’s most unusual feature is that it has two coastlines, one in the west sandwiched between St Brelade and St Ouen, and the other in the south between St Brelade and St Lawrence.  Five minutes drive and you'll have a choice of three beautiful sandy bays, whilst on the doorstep there's a 10 Pin Bowling Alley, a challenging 9 hole Golf Course, riding stables and cycle friendly lanes. A large portion of the parish is occupied by Jersey Airport.

Val De La Mare

Val de la Mare Reservoir is the private property of Jersey Water and is kept open for the enjoyment of the general public. The reservoir was constructed in 1962 and is the second largest reservoir in Jersey (Queen’s Valley is the largest). The reservoir holds up to 938.7 megalitres of untreated water (enough to supply Jersey with water for approximately five weeks).  The reservoir has a natural wealth of flora and fauna and is home to many species of birds and wildlife. Owls are also particularly encouraged at the reservoir and there are several walking routes around Val de la Mare Reservoir, the full circuit is 2.8miles
