The world’s first concrete lighthouse draws visitors as much for its striking architecture as for its dramatic location and is one of the iconic Jersey sights. Corbiere Lighthouse stands 36 metres above high water on the island’s south west corner on a tidal island surrounded by rocks. It can be reached at low tide by walking along a causeway, flanked by rock pools and small beaches. On the walk across peer into the rock pools you might see the rare brittle star. A wonderfully atmospheric location, it is a fabulous place to watch Jersey sunsets and rolling Atlantic storms. For safe crossing check Corbiere Lighhouse tide times here.
Close by, Corbiere Phara Restaurant offers some spectacular views, especially at sunset, and serves a full range of good food, snacks and drinks all day.
