Situated south of Britain and north of Brittany, just 14 miles from the French coast, this picturesque island is a mere nine miles by five miles and overflowing with incredible wildlife, which inhabits the valleys and coastline. Wherever you turn there is a beautiful sight to behold and hidden coves to explore.
Jersey boasts a fascinating history that dates back over a 1,000 years and is evident in the architecture and many of the street names. There is so much more to the island than the all too familiar Jersey cows and potatoes. Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and can be reached by plane or boat. It is also known for its temperate climate, which is sunnier and warmer than the rest of the British Isles.
Jersey is made up of 12 parishes, including Ste Helier – one of the most popular tourist destinations. The landscape is a paradise for nature lovers, with its golden beaches where you can explore and bathe in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Owing to its pristine coastline, there is a plethora of activities such as jet skiing, cycling, surfing and walking available. Each season transforms the island into a rich tapestry filled with colourful flowers and verdant landscapes.
If you also enjoy culture and history, you will find plenty of that here, too. With theatres, music venues, restaurants, galleries and shops in abundance, you certainly won’t be short of things to do during your stay at one of our Jersey hotels.
