St. BreladeUnited Kingdom

Admire the sense of seclusion and tranquility as you visit this area’s medieval chapel and sandy strand. Find more action at the forest adventure center.

Tucked away in a remote part of Jersey, St. Brelade is a parish area composed of grassy headlands and historic vestiges. Walking trails meander through the quaint villages, leading to the summits of cliffs overlooking secluded sandy beaches. Appreciate nature in the various gardens and bucolic meadows with sea views.

For insights into the area’s origins, visit the Parish Church of St. Brelade. Venture inside to see impressive stone pillars and stained-glass windows. The accompanying medieval Fisherman’s Chapel, one of the last of its kind on the island, offers a stunning vista of the bay. Inspect the centuries-old frescoes gracing the interior window arch.

Walk down to sandy St. Brelade’s Bay Beach and rent kayaks and inflatables to take out on the water. Taste oysters and crab in a seafood restaurant facing the strand.

The bucolic terrain of St. Brelade makes it ideal for walking. Stroll through the beachside Sir Winston Churchill Park to see its waterfall and the bust of its namesake former British prime minister. Continue inland to the 1.5-acre (0.6-hectare) Reg’s Garden for a koi pond and Fairy Garden.

Embark on the Railway Walk from St. Aubin to the southwestern cape of Jersey. The path traces much of the old train track and ends with views of the Corbière Lighthouse. See the nearby WWII German Naval Tower MP2 and the WWII Bunker, which offer insights into the island’s time under German occupation.

For a change of pace, bring your family into the forested playground of Valley Adventure Centre. Try zipline, paintball and archery, among other thrilling activities.

This parish area takes up the southwestern crook of Jersey, including the southern reaches of Les Mielles Nature Reserve. Arrive at Jersey Airport and drive south through the parish. Explore the historic vestiges and beaches of its northern counterpart, St. Ouen parish.

St. Brelade’s Beach, with a backdrop of the parish church and chapel, is one of the island’s most enduring images.
