The best rock pooling in the UK


Bay of Grouville, Jersey

The south and west are mainly sandy, so aim for the north and east coast for rock pools which are teeming with marine life. Jersey’s large tidal movents mean you may have to walk a long way to get to the water when the tide is out.

Amazingly because of the large tidal range, you can even catch lobsters and deeper water sea life, that you otherwise would need a boat for.
