Archirondel Tower is a perfect short stay property for those wishing to explore Jersey's eastern tip, it is close to St Catherine's woods, St Catherine's breakwater and the impressive Mont Orgueil castle. Safe swimming, smooth pebbles for decorating sand castles, rocks to scramble on and smooth sands nearer the sea make Archirondel beach a popular place with families.

The Tower is painted red and white so it can be used as navigational point by vessels at sea. Rarely crowded, with an excellent cafe on the edge of the beach Archirondel is also a great place to launch a canoe or kayak because of the sheltered nature of the beach.

Archirondel Tower was built on a rocky outcrop in St Catherine's Bay in 1792 and was used as a garrison for artillery soldiers, it is now linked to the shore by the abandoned southern arm of St Catherine's breakwater. The tower is set over three levels; the table and benches, fridge and kettle are located on the 1st, exterior metal steps lead to the 2nd where there are 4 beds, the remaining three beds are accessed via the 2nd floor up a wooden ladder. Archirondel Tower has limited facilities; there is no running water or toilet facility within the property, however there electricity and a beach café 100 years away with 24 hour access to toilets and showers. Guests will need to bring their own sleeping bags.

At Jersey Heritage, we bring to life the rich history and culture of our beautiful island. By hiring a Jersey Heritage holiday let you can become a part of the Island's history, sharing in and enjoying the iconic backdrops that have shared our way of life.

"Extremely basic but Fantastic away from it all break if you like that sort of thing!"

We hired the tower for 2 nights in Sepember 2013, booked through Jersey Heritage. The location is amazing.No running water, no toilets.... but there is a good cafe and toilets (open 24hr) nearby. The … More

Thank you for your review, we do value all feedback and are delighted that you had a lovely time. Archirondel is an amazing place but you do need an adventourous spirit to stay there for longer than two nights. Next time you visit Jersey try one of our historical, self catering properties - privacy in the shower guaranteed.
