A BEACH café at Bouley Bay has reopened after being closed for several weeks as it had to relocate to a new spot in the bay.

Mad Mary’s owner Mary Tunney said it was “amazing” to be back open.

The café successfully applied for planning permission to move around 100 metres to the west while the Water’s Edge Hotel is demolished and replaced with a large home with guest accommodation, a pool, tennis courts and extensive landscaped gardens.

The Bouley Bay Dive Centre has also had to relocate to the top of a German bunker next to the public toilets, close to the temporary site for Mad Mary’s café .

Reopening the café required a lot of work, Mrs Tunney stressed, as she thanked Trinity Constable Philip Le Sueur, who she said had helped her “every time I popped in crying about something”.

Jersey Property Holdings and Jersey Electricity were also instrumental, she added.

“If I rang them, they just came down, they just helped me,” Mrs Tunney said.

Mrs Tunney added: “You know what, I’m so happy that I’m back.

“It’s seriously hard work but I just didn’t realise – if you look on Facebook, people are going crazy.”

Mad Mary’s beach café is open seven days a week from 9.30am in its new location at the top of the slipway at Bouley Bay.
