Bays and Boats around St Brelade’s Bay
A typical itinerary on this painting holiday in Jersey
Guests are met from either the airport or ferry terminal and taken to our hotel. The afternoon and evening will be spent exploring and sketching our local bay.
From its historic battlements built to defend Jersey there is an outstanding view to paint of the bay, the coast and the village, with its narrow streets nestling below. There is also an option to explore the castle.
This most westerly point has inspiring views of rugged rocks and turbulent seas. The lighthouse high on its island stands as a reminder of wrecks and storms and provides a great subject for painters.
St Brelade's Bay
On the doorstep of our hotel the expanse of the bay beckons. From our vantage point by the ancient fishermens’ chapel, perched high on the headland we can paint the glistening tidal flats and turning tide.
This small sheltered north-facing harbour nestles within the arms of the bay, Rozel woods at our backs. It is one Jersey's most picturesque bays and provides a lovely day on this painting holiday in Jersey.
Guests will be transferred to either the airport or port to suit their travel plans.
