Anne Port is a small bay on the north east coast of Jersey


A seaplane at Anne Port in the 1920s. This is believed to be a six-seater Vickers Viking IV seaplane, registered G-EBED to Leslie Hamilton of the Royal Aero Club in 1926 and possibly destroyed in 1929

Anne Port is a sandy beach on Jersey's east coast, between Gorey and St Catherine. It has always had very limited parking, so never becomes overcrowded.

It is overlooked at its southern end by a rock face known as Le Saut Geoffroi (Jeffrey's Leap) which legend has it was the scene of ancient executions, with those suspected of witchcraft pushed over the cliff face to die on the rocks below.
