La Motte from Jersey

Green Island or La Motte is a tidal island in the parish of St Clement on the south-east coast of Jersey (Channel Islands)

It is situated near the sea shore and is accessible at low tide but visitors to the Island need to be careful not to be cut off by the incoming tide. The island has a grassy surface and is predominantly clay surrounded by rocks. In recent times efforts have been made to preserve the Island by the construction of walls.

At low tide around Green Island are various rocks which are interesting to explore.

There are also some archaeological remains here. Remains of a cemetery on La Motte are believed to be from later settlers.[1] A Neolithic cairn and middens on La Motte have also been investigated.
