Feel the sand between your toes and the fresh sea breeze in your hair on Jersey’s beautiful beaches. Head for the north and east coast for rock pools teeming with marine life, or south and west for glorious golden sands, washed by the tides each day.

With its unspoiled landscape and unique blend of British and French influences, Jersey really is a place where you can get away from it all.

Located some 100 miles (160 kms) south of mainland Britain, Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles. In fact, it's much closer to France, lying just 14 miles (22 kms) from its coast.

Despite its compact size - just 9 miles by 5 miles (14 kms by 8 kms) - Jersey possesses a rich and varied landscape which sends visitors into sensory overload.

Exploring Jersey

You might think that an area of 45 square miles (116 square kms), with a permanent population of over 97,857, would have little but buildings to explore. But approach the Island by air and you'll see lush valleys, well-kept fields and an unspoilt coastline.

Arrive by sea and the rocky grandeur of La Corbière, the sweep of St Aubin's Bay and picturesque Elizabeth Castle merely hint at Jersey's wealth of history and sheer beauty. The scale of both means it easily rivals much larger and perhaps better-known destinations.

Some 450 miles (720 kms) of roadway (a mix of fast routes and quiet rural lanes) create endless opportunities to discover the unexpected and impressive. There's also a 45-mile (72 km) network of narrow country roads known as 'Green Lanes', with a speed limit of 15 mph (24 kph) and priority given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

ST HELIER

Because of its central location, St Helier is an ideal base, especially for those not wishing to drive as there are excellent travel links to the rest of the island. The main bus station is located here, along with three taxi ranks and the main harbour is only half a mile from the town centre.

The centre of St Helier is also only a 10 minute walk to two excellent beaches - Havre Des Pas offers a Victorian seaside promenade with a safe natural bathing pool, and sweeping St Aubin’s Bay leads all the way to St Aubin’s Harbour to the west.

Hotels of all classes can be found in St Helier, from four and five-star hotels (some of which offer Michelin starred dining), to intimate boutique hotels offering romantic dining experiences serving award winning food, to small guesthouses with beer gardens and al fresco dining overlooking the seafront.

There are also many fantastic family hotels in the capital of St Helier, some with excellent pool complexes, sun trap terraces, kids dining options and activity programs to keep everyone entertained.
