Jersey travel tips
Paul Day from our expert supplier Let’s Go Walking with some advice on walking in Jersey:
“Jersey offers a great variety of terrain with classic sea cliff top walking to long sandy beaches, and interesting coastal towns. The beach at St Brelade’s Bay is one of my personal favorites. Locally grown flowers, eggs and soft fruit are often sold by local farms and smallholders along the path. The views over to France and the other Channel Islands can be stunning. The elevations are not great and the path is generally well defined. It is possible to walk around Jersey in a long weekend but the island deserves a longer visit if possible. I recommend people go sooner rather than later as the island is changing fast.”
“Jersey is a gem of historic highlights in a small area, with its great castles at St Helier and Gorey. The German occupation during WWII has left many coastal fortifications and the infamous underground hospital. The island also has a very strong French influence in its architecture and culture (many road names are in French eg Rue du Boulivot).”
Getting there“Tourism is a vital industry in Jersey and its sustainability is taken very seriously by the local population. The Channel Islands have a good ferry link to UK run by a company that employs mostly local people. We always encourage people to us this vital greener travel method.”
