You can leave a bit later this morning after a long and leisurely breakfast as the walk from Gorey Bay to St Helier is a shorter one.

Beginning your day in the sleepy yet colourful Gorey, the small harbour overlooked by the firesome fort, you will spend the day following the coastline. South of Gorey Harbour you reach the Royal Bay of Grouville with its massive tidal reaches. When the tide is out the low lying reef and rocks make the landscape lunar-like. It is well worth planning in time to explore with an experienced guide to learn about the rich maritime life beneath the sea.  Along this stretch of coast, you will see numerous Jersey Round Towers built to defend this vulnerable stretch of the coast. Rounding the south-east corner of the island It is an easy walk back to St Helier where the walk ends.


If the tide is out, walk on the beach rather than the roads. The route is the same, just be sure to be aware of the tides

There is some clifftop walking, be very careful of loose rocks and do not go to close to the edge. When you do drop down to the beach, be aware of the tides. 

The tides are quick and strong, be careful if you choose to walk on the beach rather than the roadside paths.

There are some road crossings, always be aware of traffic and be sure to use a pavement/sidewalk where possible, where it isn’t walk on the right-hand side of the road,

Some of the ground can be uneven, with steep descents and muddy/boggy ground. Ensure you have suitable footwear and step cautiously where needed, the mud is especially tricky in wet weather.

Food and Drink

Today is a short walk, so there is no need bring lunch with you. The island capital of St Helier is full of fantastic foody options.


Points of Interest

Royal Bay of Grouville

As with St. Catherine's Bay, the Royal Bay of Grouville is located on the east coast of Jersey and thus we will not find a lot of WW2 fortress defences here. We do find Panzermauer 9 here. One of the most impressive examples on the island stretches from Fort Henry to Einsatz Fort William for almost 1 km. Another interesting structure at Fort Henry, which is now covered by the greens of the Royal Jersey Golf Course, is the non-standard bunker for Sechsschartenturm.

The 5 towers of Grouville Bay

Despite the French landing at La Rocque which led to the Battle of Jersey, Conway clearly thought that the greatest threat was in Grouville Bay, where five closely-spaced towers were constructed at the southern end in the 18th century. The first of the five, at La Rocque, close to Platte Rocque Tower, is sometimes called St Samson's Tower, but the name more properly belongs to the adjoining guardhouse and magazine, which it is thought might have been constructed on the remains of a former chapel dedicated to St Samson.
