Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
Take in panoramic views of the Jersey coast from Corbiere Lighthouse (La Corbiere), the first lighthouse in the British Isles to be built of concrete. Adorning the peak of a tidal island, the lighthouse emits a beam visible up to 29 km (18 mi) from shore to warn ships away from the rocks. Visit at low tide to stroll across the expansive causeway, which is covered at high tide, leading to the landmark. You’ll see German bunkers from the World War II occupation, a lookout tower, a memorial statue, and plenty of tide pools on your way. Climb the tower and learn of its history by booking a tour through the St. Helier tourism office.

  • Nice walk down to the lighthouse. There were a lot of interesting bunkers, etc. around to look at too. 
  • An excellent walk out over the causeway at low tide. Tours of the lighthouse itself are available at certain times but need to be booked in advance. Lots of rock pools along side the causeway to inves...  read more »
  • Had a great meal her last night. Fantastic view of the lighthouse and watching the sunset from the restaurant. The food was excellent as was the service from the waitresses. If we were here for long enough, we'd be going back again.
  • Lasting impressions: fabulous food, lovely service, beautiful sunset, spectacular views Our experience: we've been a couple of times - once as a walk-in in the height of the tourist season, when we were mad to feel at home while they found us a table in the packed out restaurant. Even though they were clearly busy, the service was fantastic and I noted a waitress taking the time to walk an elderly lady to the toilets. The second time was very much out of season for a midweek birthday lunch. Both times, the food was really good, service was friendly but not over-bearing and the views are just gorgeous. It's a really lovely place to have a sunset dinner but it's very popular during tourist season, so book ahead. The verdict: we will go back - the food is good, the service (for us) has been good and there are some nice walks to be done nearby (including to the lighthouse at low tide)
  • My Wife, Daughter, her boyfriend and myself recently visited Jersey for our Daughters surprise Birthday as we are regular visitors to the island. On Friday 10th July we all visited Corbiere for a day out and on a very hot afternoon decided to visit Corbiere Phare for some refreshments, there was a small group of people at the piano bar, a family seated at a table and ourselves. Everyone was watching Wimbledon tennis when a man came along unannounced and changed channel on the television, it was then a young chap said they were watching tennis and could he switch back the channel. What followed was an embarrassing torrent of offensive bad language from what turned out to be the owner and at a level which could be clearly heard by everyone in the bar. After a polite retort from the first man things became worse, the owner started shouting he owned the f*****g building and he paid the f*****g bills and owned the TV so he could watch what he wanted, which turned out to be a horse race that he had a bet on. When he was told that he would not be visiting the Corbiere Phare again the owner said that was his choice and I don’t f*****g c are. Then the race finished, he walked off contented with the remote control in his hand, and there was an awkward silence, people started to naturally leave, including ourselves and the bar was soon empty. Although the place is fine and we had a nice drink we will not be visiting Corbiere Phare again.
  • Imagine arriving at 3pm on a June Friday, hungry after a long walk, to find outside tables looking out over the lighthouse. You'd think you had find the right place. Imagine then being made to wait at the bar for give minutes, then being told the kitchen was closed and no good was available, not even cakes to go with the tea or coffee. That as our disappointing experience here.
  • Very nice situation with views to the lighthouse but food was indifferent. Roast meals had poorly cooked potatoes and overdone Yorkshire pudding. Staff seemed stressed.
