Close to St Catherine's woods, the impressive St Catherine's Breakwater and secluded beaches, Archirondel Tower provides a perfect coastal base while you explore the north-eastern corner of Jersey.

Built on a rocky outcrop in St Catherine's Bay in 1792, Archirondel Tower was used as a garrison for artillery soldiers and has been a key defensive point throughout Jersey's history. Linked to the shore by the abandoned southern arm of St Catherine's Breakwater, the Tower has been converted into one of our basic coastal towers and accommodates up to 10 people at any time.

Split over three levels with a large terrace overlooking the tranquil bay of Archirondel, the Tower provides a great base for those looking for adventure, with the sea on your doorstep. The ground floor comprises of a beautiful vaulted-celling dining area with a dining table for six people with a fridge and a kettle. Accessed via an exterior metal stairway a timber door followed by a low steel blast door, installed by occupying German Forces in 1941, takes you to a sleeping area with three basic wooden bunks with canvas mattresses. A further ladder takes you to the second floor with another four bunks. No linen is provided, so this is a back-to-basics camping type experience.

If you enjoy water sports, such as kayaking, then we recommend bringing it with you. The eastern coast of Jersey has many secluded bays to explore and teeming with marine wildlife. There is also a café 100 yards away, which is perfect for those early morning bacon rolls before you go on your next excursion around the Island.

There is no running water or toilet facilities at Archirondel Tower, however guests have 24 hour access to public toilets and showers. The tower has electricity and lighting.
