Grandes Rocques Beach

Cobo Village, Guernsey

Situated on the Island's west coast, this sandy beach is a great place for families. The landscape is an attractive mix of sand dunes and pink granite rocky headland with fortifcations to explore as well as great rockpools. Sunsets from here are exceptional.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (St Peter Port, Guernsey) 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.
