The Channel Islands have been welcoming holiday makers for decades; Jersey is a popular destination for those seeking a cosmopolitan island break, quiet countryside, wonderful beaches and stunning cliff top walks.
The island is compact 45 square miles of delightful contrasts offering accessible and unspoilt countryside, woodland and hedgerows, coastal cliffs and headlands. This is perfect cycling and walking country, with a 50-mile coastal path, miles of idyllic country lanes, and waymarked paths.
There are 350 miles of lanes and the islands cycle network has signed cycle routes where people have the priority over motor cars, which have to abide to a strict speed limit!
Jersey has plenty to keep you occupied; explore ancient castles, visit adventure parks, discover the wildlife and see the magnificent gardens that thrive from the Islands’ mild and sunny climate.
Boat charter is readily available and a great way to spend the day; spot the marine wildlife, do a spot of fishing or maybe even go on a day trip to France. Being an island there is a huge selection of watersports available, from sailing and kayaking to water skiing to windsurfing.
Enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of the island’s capital, St Helier, which maintains a cosy friendly feel combined with the sophistication of a modern city. This charming place has a very distinctive French feel to it, where you can relax in a café or enjoy a first class meal in one of the many restaurants. There is a good selection of boutique shops within the compact shopping areas.
Jersey has a great many excellent visitor attractions; a few for consideration include The Durrell Wildlife Park, founded by the author and naturalist Gerald Durrell, which offers a safe home to over 130 endangered species. The Jersey War Tunnels give an insight into the island occupation during World War Two and history come to life when you visit Mont Orgueil Castle which has given protection to Jersey for over 600 years.
