Guernsey’s Unique Coastal Escape

The start of the 2024 boating season is fast approaching and there are new horizons waiting to be explored.

Less than a day’s sail from the UK and just a stone’s throw from the French coast, lies Beaucette. Frequently described as the most peaceful and beautiful marina in the English Channel, this one of a kind, privately-owned marina provides access to some of the most exhilarating and varied boating off the UK’s south coast.

Beaucette is an ideal base for exploring Guernsey and its’ neighbouring islands, Herm, Sark and Alderney. Guernsey is steeped in history from the neolithic to Napoleonic, Hire electric bikes from the marina and explore the many coastal paths bearing battlements and forts from years gone by. The island’s turquoise waters and craggy coves have attracted many artists and writers over the years too, including Victor Hugo who spent many years in exile here, as well as Renoir who painted much of Guernsey’s south coast.

The marina itself offers first class facilities. Owner Stephen Haines, who also resides at Beaucette, has invested over a million pounds in the last three years on upgrades and improvements, and continues to maintain the site to the highest standards. Add to the mix one of the very best restaurants on the island, Saltwater, offering spectacular views across to Alderney, Herm, Jethou, Sark, Jersey and France and you have a winning formula. Chef Matt prides himself on using local produce where possible and the menu boasts local seafood and fish dishes daily, as well as a very popular Sunday roast. 

If you’re bringing friends and looking for extra accommodation, we offer four luxurious shepherd huts, each with a king size bed, ensuite shower and fully-fitted handmade kitchen. Enjoy a BBQ on the outside deck together or soak the day’s sail away in the wood-fired hot tub. 

A warm welcome awaits you at Beaucette.
