A short Rib Trip ride to Les Ecrehous, located just six miles north-east of Jersey and eight miles from France are the sandbanks of Les Ecrehous.
Les Ecrehous form part of the Bailiwick of Jersey and are administratively part of the Parish of St. Martin. These breath-taking group of islands and rocks were in the 17thcentury used by smugglers destined for St Malô. These days Les Ecrehous are home to tiny fisherman and holiday houses that seem to be rising from the rocks themselves.
During the rib trip to the islands, passengers are likely to be greeted by a diversity of birdlife, schools of dolphins, and grey seals that balance elegantly on the surrounding rocks. These beautiful scenic islands are drastically changed by the tidal flows. Low tides expose sand banks and rocks allowing passengers to explore the myriad of rock pools. High-tides submerge these rocks, reducing the size of the islands to the seamlessly vulnerable houses located on the main island of Les Ecrehous.
This location is perfect for fishing, paddle-boarding, swimming and picnics.
