The safest walking route from the hotel to the beach

Although this is not the most direct route down to St Ouen's beach from the hotel, it is the safest and easiest affording a spectacular view of the bay.

 


Walking Directions 

Leave the hotel, and make your way to the main road, Mont de la Pulente. Cross over into Parcq de L’Oeilliere and turn right (the road has ‘No Entry’ marked on it). Follow the road through the estate and take the second right. 

Walk on beyond the tarmac, soon we are on the headland that separates Petit Port from St.Ouen’s Bay and a great panoramic view of the other islands can be seen on the right. Follow the track ahead for 75 meters, upon reaching a ‘ crossroads’, with paths ahead and to each side, turn right and descend through a wooden barrier towards the broad sandy sweep of St.Ouen’s Bay. Look out for a tree about three-quarters of the way down! When the steps reach a gravel path, cross over and follow a narrow path that runs below the road.

Some way along the path, go down the granite steps on the left. When these emerge onto tarmac, turn left and make your way towards the beach. Walk down the slipway onto the beach.

If you do not fancy walking back, buses can be caught at a number of stops along the bay. The closest and immediately below the hotel is marked on the timetable as La Pulente N.
