Bordeaux Harbour & Beach

Rue du Bordeaux, Vale, GY3

Bordeaux Bay is separated into two bays by an L-shaped granite pier and slipway. The northern bay is where a number of small fishing and pleasure boats are moored. When the tide is up, the pier is a popular spot for children to jump off into the shallow water.

The southern beach has a narrow pebble bank at the top which leads onto the sand. It is a popular paddling spot for young families and you’ll often find snorkellers exploring around the rocks when the tide is high.
