Enjoy: Picnics

Grantez Headland

With stunning views sweeping across St Ouen’s Bay, this is a perfect spot for a relaxing picnic.

This extensive area of maritime headland is located above the escarpment of st Ouen's Bay and enjoys breathtaking views extending from Corbiere Lighthouse to L'Etacq.

Within its vicinity is a megalithic passage-grave anciently known as Le Creux es Fait tchieaux, due to the local folklore belief that it had been built by the "little people".

Dating back to around 4000-3250 BC, the passage-grave is made from local granite is owned and maintained by the Société Jersaise who excavated it in 1912.


From St Ouen's Village head down La Route du Marais (Hydrangea Avenue) before turning left down La Rue de Grantez. Thereafter, turn right down La Ruette de Grantez or Le Chemin des Monts until you reach an informal parking area. Look for the footpath on the left hand side which will take you down towards the headland.

Must See: The Trust holds Sunset Concerts at Grantez annually on the first weekend of July. This is a very relaxed and charming event where by picnickers and revellers enjoy the harmonic sounds of a varity of bands whilst the sun into the sea. During Friday and Saturday evenings live music is performed at the beautiful natural amphitheatre of Grantez. Why not come along with friends and family, bring a picnic and enjoy a fun evening of music and spectacular panoramic views of the bay at sunset?
