About St Aubin

Porthole Suites are located just a minute’s walk from the village centre and tidal harbour. St Aubin is famous for its numerous restaurants, each one better than the next and providing a wide range of choice. There are several boutique shops,  a supermarket for provisions, hairdressing and beauty salons, and more.

St. Aubin is your perfect Jersey self catering holiday location! It is situated both at the start of the Railway Walk to LaCorbière lighthouse and the promenade to St Helier, making it a great base for Jersey walking breaks and cycling holidays. This out of town location provides the best of both worlds and has excellent public transport links.

St Aubin’s is on the south coast and is regarded as the ‘Jewel of Jersey’. With its sheltered aspect, it is the warmest part of the Island! St Aubin’s bay offers a sweep of golden sands where walkers and bikers can enjoy the 2.5m promenade walk to St Helier and water sports including sailing and jet skiing.
