East coast - by Gorey bay golf course. Gorey is a charming little harbour village, nestling into a hillside, with the famous Mont Orgeuil Castle overlooking the harbour. The fine sandy beach is a great place to relax and soak up the sun.

 Additional Information

I usually park on the pier, and paddle out from there, which saves your arms when its working well. Try to remember to bring a spare board as it can pack a punch! On its day can be the best beachie barrel on the Island. I love it, no one seems to know about it or bother with it so even if it aint that great, its still better than battling it out with the locals at st ouens. Can be a good vibe in the summer if it works cause the beach is packed and people stand on the shore line cheering and stuff. Its pretty cool
