    St Ouens bay is extremely popular with beachgoers and surfers in the Summer but as sections of it have dangerous rip tides it means that people tend to stick to areas that are safe to bathe, and where there are life guards. That means that even in the height of the Summer its possible to get away from crowds and the area around the little white house is always quiet. And yes, there is always the smell of the salt in the air, everywhere in the island actually. I only notice that when I return to the island. 🙂
