Beautiful beaches

Pristine beaches of every variety fringe Jersey. Small and sandy, long and pebbly, tucked away and rocky – you'll find the lot here! Plémont Bay on the island's north-west coast is one of the finest spots, where the turquoise sea glints in the sunshine. Holidaying with little ones? Head for the golden grains of St Brelade’s Bay. And if you're a fan of the surf, St Ouen’s Bay impresses with its rolling Atlantic swell.


A haven of history

There's no shortage of ancient attractions in Jersey! The island's first coastal defence, Gorey Castle, dates back to 1204! Come here and you can gaze upon shimmering waters from its silvery turrets that rise over the hillside. Over in St Aubin's Bay, 17th-century Elizabeth Castle is even more breathtaking and has an intriguing history that spans to WWII. The sobering Jersey War Tunnels are worth a visit too.


Attractions for all ages

Whether you're visiting with the kids or on a romantic getaway, Jersey caters to all. The landscape here is all about meadows in every shade of green, dazzling coastline and dense woodland.
