Part of our national heritage and the Island’s very first tourist attraction, this scenic gorge in sandstone cliffs, with waterfalls and stream leads down to the beach. Rare flora and fauna, Nature Trail and historic features.

Our exhibition “Aviation and the Island” continues, together with PLUTO (Pipe Line Under The Ocean) which carried petrol to the Allied troops in Normandy. Also, local history displays and a memorial to 40 Royal Marine Commando who trained here for the Dieppe raid of 1942. During the summer months, the subtle illuminations create a magical world after dusk

Browse the gift shop, enjoy a cream tea in the Tea Garden or just sit, relax and take in the view. Access is limited to wheelchair users – dogs on leads welcome. At the bottom of the Chine, the Fisherman’s Cottage. the historic pub on the beach welcomes everyone for good quality food.
