“view of scaffolding”

The area around the lighthouse is fascinating as the natural landscape was great and the added fortifications made by the Germans were still evident, was disappointed as the lighthouse was undergoing maintenance on the outside and all you could see was scaffolding but still great place to visit.

This spot has one of the best views of Jersey! Sadly there was some construction works going on at the lighthouse. But still a very nice place to be and enjoy the view.

On a recent visit to Jersey, we visited La Corbiere during the early afternoon and found this to be a beautiful part of the Jersey landscape.

Drivers should be aware the entrance is a single track road but it shouldn't cause a problem if drivers are considerate.

Walking down from the top car park, the incline is steady with stunning views of the lighthouse and the Jersey coastline. The rugged rock formations and sandy beaches make for a very pleasant walk. As you descend towards the causeway, you pass two/three wartime gun emplacements which are maintained with boards providing visitors with information about their role in the island's history.

At the bottom of the hill, there is a handily placed bench looking out over the causeway to the lighthouse itself where you relax and watch the world go by.

It is possible to walk over to the lighthouse HOWEVER be sure that you read the sign for visitors' safety explaining the dangers of the tide. An alarm does sound as the tide starts to come in, but visitors need to be aware that this only sounds once. Nevertheless, the tide comes in quickly enough for visitors to see that this is occurring.

This location was beautiful on the sunny day that we visited and apparently it is especially worth a visit at sunset but we didn't manage to fit this in during our visit.

The only disappointment was that the lighthouse itself is currently undergoing refurbishment and so you couldn't get any photographs of it or go inside as it was covered by scaffolding but these things need to be done to keep it well maintained.

On a recent visit to Jersey, we made several trips to La Corbiere at different times of day as this is such a beautiful part of the Jersey landscape.

The lighthouse has a fascinating history, as well placed information boards explain.

There is parking at the top of the cliff, where an ice-cream van can also be found most days, and also further down nearer the house. Drivers should be aware that this is a single track however.

Walking down from the top carpark, the incline is steady with with stunning views not only of the lighthouse, but also the Jersey coastline. From rugged rocks to sandy beaches, all can be viewed from here. As you descend towards the causeway, you pass two/three wartime gun emplacements. These have been respectfully maintained and information boards offer visitors information on their relevance to the island's history but also, for enthusiasts, where the artillery was produced etc.

At the bottom of the hill, there is a handily placed bench looking out over the causeway to the lighthouse itself.

It is possible to walk over to the lighthouse HOWEVER there is a sign for visitors' safety explaining the dangers of the tide. An alarm does sound as the tide starts to come in, however visitors should understand that this sounds just the once. Nevertheless, the tide comes in quickly enough for aware visitors to see that this is occurring.

This time, we sat and watched the tide and it took less than forty minutes for the causeway to become covered from the initial alarm.

This location is beautiful during both sunny and wet weather but is especially worth a visit at sunset. I would recommend driving a little further down the road also to see the sun setting behind the lighthouse - a very photogenic experience!

You won't be disappointing with the views once you walk out. You get great views over St Ouens bay, and when the sun is out, it really is a treat.

The walk is not that far from the parking - you can park on the road, or just down a slip road towards the bunker, and you walk over the causeway, passing by lots of wonderful rock pools (my kids loved them!).

As others have said, watch out for the tide, but well worth a visit. In 2017 the lighthouse is being renovated, so you don't see much of that, but the views make up for it.
