St. Ouens Bay - Watersplash Beach

St Aubyns, Jersey

St Ouen's is the longest beach in Jersey, spanning nearly the full length of the island's west coast. It's locally referred to as 'the five mile road' for obvious reasons, and is a superb surfing beach with a cafe/restaurant and beach club at the Watersplash.

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.
