Lying between the shores of England and France, Jersey has done much to keep its beautiful surroundings completely unspoiled over the years. It’s something that you’ll still appreciate today, as you wander among emerald green valleys that lead to medieval stone fortresses.

St Aubin

Famous for its picture-perfect buildings, charming harbour and lush green backdrop, St Aubin is a particularly pretty port town that’s not to be missed.

St Clements

Nestled on Jersey’s south-east coast, St Clement's holds the key to an intriguing history. Dating back centuries, the ancient ruins of the areas predecessors can still be seen – so culture seekers will have a field day!

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

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches. The sand dunes of Corralejo are straight out of a postcard, while the Costa Caleta boasts a bustling strip great for lounging around in the sun. Jandia is watersports central, with everything from diving to surfing on offer.
