Bordeaux Beach

St Sampson's, Guernsey

This east-facing beach is good for swimming, particularly on a summer morning at high tide, with wonderful views across the sea to the nearby islands of Herm and Jethou. There is also a very picturesque small harbour next to the bay which is a popular spot with painters.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (St Helier, Jersey) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
