3) Le Jaonnet

Le Jaonnet Bay is a cove on the south coast of Guernsey and is nearby to Icart and La Villette

4) Petit Bot Bay

Petit Bot is a very popular location with visitors and local people as it offers a lovely sandy breach when the tide is out.

The views from this section of coastline are truly spectacular, with a panoramic outlook across Moulin Huet, Jerbourg headland and even France on a clear day. These cliffs are composed of some of the oldest rock in Europe and play host in springtime to a myriad of wildflowers. Because of their isolation, the beaches here were used during the Second World War by British spies to get onto the island unseen and gain useful information about the enemy invaders.

At the end of this section of the walk is Petit Bôt, a very popular location with tourists and local people as it offers a lovely sandy beach when the tide is out, areas for rock-pooling and a tearoom open during the holiday season.
