Enjoy magnificent views from this southwest coast spot, from which Hanois lighthouse and Lihou Island can be seen, as well as Jersey and the French coast on clear days. You will also come across the impressive WW2 German Naval observation tower which is open to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays from March to October between 2-5pm.

The headland is also home to the Fairy Ring, or Tables des Pions, a ring of stones and a shallow circular trench with various tales of superstition. It is actually a 300 year old picnic bench used during inspections of the islands paths and coastal defences up until 1837, but local folklore tells tales of fairies gathering at this seemingly mysterious landmark.

If you’re looking for an easy-going flat cliff walk with plenty of discovery and wildlife on your way, Pleinmont is a great choice.
