Vingtaine de Samarès is one of the three vingtaines of the Parish of St. Clement in Jersey, Channel Islands.[1]

It takes its name from the salt marsh[2] that used to occupy much of the area of this low-lying coastal vingtaine.

Samarès used to be served by the Jersey Eastern Railway. The local train station was opened on 7 August 1873, and closed on 21 June 1929. The station building still exists, and is now a private house.[3]
