Grouville

Grouville’s golden sandy beach and picture-perfect backdrop are the ultimate setting for a relaxing retreat.

St Peter

Situated in western Jersey, St Peter is a haven for walkers and explorers. Home to woodland trails, historic landmarks and rolling countryside, you’ll have countless opportunities when it comes to capturing some holiday snaps.

St Brelade's Bay

A history-lovers haven

Being such an attractive island, Jersey first set up its coastal defence in 1204 with Gorey Castle. Thankfully, it’s a sight that’s lost none of its power, and you can gaze upon shimmering waters from its silvery turrets that rise over the hillside. Incredibly, the 17th-century Elizabeth Castle is even more breathtaking.

Picture perfect

Jersey justifies its reputation as a richly forested island, with meadows in every shade of green casting deep tones into the countryside. The island’s year-round temperate climate is also perfect for blossoming flowers. Its breathtaking beauty means there’s loads of photo opportunities – so keep a camera at the ready!

Beaches

It’s all about poolside lounging and retro bathing platforms in much of this seaside paradise. But if you’re after a traditional stretch of sand to mooch on, the island of Ischia is your best bet. It’s kitted out with one of the largest patches, and most of it’s free, too.
