Discover Jersey


Leave the 9-5 for Jersey's nine by five. Big on adventure, big on thrills, you'll be captivated by the passion and energy of island life. Explore on foot, cliff paths carpeted with heather, sun-bleached dunes, ancient castles, quiet country lanes and the spectacular coastal vistas and hidden valleys which make Jersey a walker's dream.

Jersey has over 50 miles of beautiful coastline and has some of the largest tidal flows in the world, with tides of up to 40 feet, resulting in dramatic changes to the coastline on a daily basis. Golden sweeps of sand fringe each coast, except the north, where small harbours nestle amongst the dramatic cliffs. With some of the cleanest beaches and best sunshine records in the UK you can be sure to find what you're looking for, secluded bays for relaxing, rocky coves to explore and beaches offering water sports galore.

In spring and summer months there are also sightings of basking sharks, seahorses, sunfishes, dolphins and seals. For the marine enthusiasts, Jersey's coastline offers a chance to bathe, discover rock pools, dive, surf, windsurf, canoe, water-ski and sail.

Or for pure indulgence, good food has been one of Jersey's attractions for many years and the island has built up an international reputation for its range of restaurants and cooking styles, which continue to impress visitors and locals alike.

A friendly welcome, the widespread use of fresh local produce, interesting and varied menus together with outstanding value all provide a dining experience to remember - whether it be in a simple beach cafA, a family friendly brasserie, a traditional country pub or a gourmet restaurant.

During the summer many restaurants expand outdoors. Alfresco wining and dining gives St Helier a more Mediterranean feel, with office workers catching a quick lunch in the sun, visitors watching the world go by and couples wiling away the afternoon over a glass of wine or two. Many others opt for a leisurely seafood dinner followed by a long promenade along the coast.

With over 190 eateries, the opportunities are endless - visit www.jersey.com/food for a list of local restaurants.

Visiting Jersey couldn't be easier with great value air links, just an hour away, from over 30 UK regional airports or sail by fast ferry from the south coast. Jersey really is right on your doorstep, with some amazing travel and accommodation deals available, there's never been a better time to visit!
