    Grandes Rocques Beach Information

    Grandes Rocques has something for everyone. It is a sandy expanse with rocky outcrops that contain many rock pools when the tide is down which are routinely explored by people of all ages. Despite being open to the prevailing south-westerlies, the offshore rock formations help ensure that the beach is great for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking.

    A reasonable sized car park area can be found just off the coast road and also towards the headland which leads to Grandes Rocques Battery. A busy kiosk caters for all essentials and also offers deckchair and windbreak hire. Buses drop off in the car park here.
