Portelet Common

Famed as a significant hunting site for our Paleolithic and Neolithic ancestors, this coastal heath land area provides dramatic views of St Brelade’s Bay and L’Ouasiné Common.

One of the site’s most prominent features is the small building at the end of the headland which was originally constructed as a defensive magazine and battery in 1795.


From La Route de Noirmont head towards Ouaisné and as the road splits take the left turning to Le Chemin du Portelet. Go down to the bottom of the road and over the speed bumps where a small informal parking area can be found. Walk down the track on the right hand side which will lead you to the Common.
