Visiting for the first time – see my 2020 video of the passage to the entrance and passing in between the rocks
Beaucette is a lovely marina. Created out of a former quarry, it enjoys the best tidal access of all the Marinas in the Channel Islands. It is in a quiet area at the North of Guernsey and ideal for a nice relaxing visit away from the Town. Great walks on the neighbouring L’Ancresse Common.
The entrance to the marina has sheer sides and looks imposing, but providing there is not too much swell, is not difficult for a small to medium size boat. Ricky works amazingly hard to look after the Marina and can tow boats out of the water using their new cradle and tractor. Can take quite large boats and a good dry area.
Especially popular to local boat owners in the Winter.
Diesel fuel is also available.
Beaucette marina has the widest tidal range of all Guernsey Marinas and on some neap tides, you can get in and out all the time.
Where to Eat
The restaurant is called Saltwater and serves excellent food.
