Overlooking St Ouen’s Bay is the 6,000 year old Grantez Dolmen.  It was excavated in 1912 and many people consider it to be a very special place, a quick look was followed by a walk around the headland which is owned by the National Trust for Jersey.  There were quite spectacular views across to L’Etacq, with some significant cumulo-nimbus clouds building to the north west.  From this position the fertile fields and steep cotils are clearly visible, supplying some of the earliest and best potatoes on the Island.  The beach was one of the principal areas for the collect of vraic (seaweed) which was used as a fertilizer on the fields.  So much to see in such a small area and a great place for a quick afternoon walk.
