Like a Local: Fish and Chips at Cobo Bay


If you ask any Guernsey local for a list of what you should do during your stay on our island, one thing they will always tell you to do is enjoy fish and chips as the sun goes down over Cobo Bay.  Situated on the west coast, Cobo Bay offers a beautiful stretch of beach that is undeniably one of the best that Guernsey has to offer (aside from our local beach at Moulin Huet, of course!).  With clear, shallow, waters and white sand it can feel like you’re at a much lower latitude - and might even prove tempting enough for an evening swim.

It’s easy to understand why an evening at Cobo is one of Guernsey’s treasures, as every night in the summer the sea wall is occupied with people of all ages enjoying an unspoilt view of the sun setting over the bay.  Facing west, the evening sun turns the entire bay golden; it really is a quintessential Guernsey experience and one not to be missed.

Getting there is easy - it is only a fifteen-minute drive from Bella Luce.  With a slipway at each end of the beach and several stairways along the sea wall, the beach is easily accessible for all to enjoy.

Cobo Fish Bar is the place to go when you’re after something to eat.  Open until late everyday in the summer and serving up the best take-away fish and chips in the bay, you’ll be in good company as it’s where everyone heads before taking a seat on the sea wall to enjoy the view.
