Pembroke Bay Beach

St Peter Port, Guernsey

The beach offers a large. almost unbroken expanse of sand. A narrow band of pebbles near the seawall protect the surrounding common land and golf course from erosion. The beach is ideal for serious sunbathers and the gentle slope of the bay also makes it good for paddling.
