Situated in the rural parish of St. Pierre du Bois, Rocquaine Bay is one of Guernsey’s shingle beaches. However, Rocquaine does also have patches of glorious sand to enjoy the summer days on. With breathtaking views of the Fort Grey Shipwreck Museum, locally known as 'the Cup and Saucer', this bay really is worth a visit during your stay.
It is also the venue of the popular summer event, the Rocquaine Regetta, a full day and evening of entertainment and activities for people of all ages. It features beach and stage events, raft races, 5-a-side football and volleyball, sandcastle competitions, and more. There is also a barbecue and live music to bring the night in.
The Imperial Hotel overlooks Rocquaine Bay and is an ideal spot to watch the sun set as you enjoy a meal or a glass or two of wine.
Rocquaine Bay is featured a number of times throughout The Book of Ebenezer Le Page. For example, Liza Queripel appears to live close to the bay;
"I got off the bus at the Imperial and walked back along the grass. The old house was still there and had the same crooked chimney and the wicked windows that looked at you sideways from under the thatch." (p. 203)
