Jersey holidays

Tucked between the shores of England and France, Jersey is an underrated gem. This dinky island has kept its beautiful surroundings completely unspoiled over the years. Choose Jersey for your next holiday and you'll have sweeping sandy beaches to laze on, green valleys to wander and medieval stone fortresses to explore. And the food? A delicious medley of freshly-netted seafood, locally-produced veggies and artisan baked goodies.

St Helier

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.

Grouville

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

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 history lover's haven

There's no shortage of ancient attractions in Jersey! The island's first coastal defence, Gorey Castle, dates 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 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. The island’s year-round climate is also perfect for blossoming flowers. Go for gentle rambles or explore by bike! Little ones will love Jersey Zoo, while Tamba Park offers adventures aplenty.

Beaches

Santorini still technically sits above an active volcano, so expect to find most of its beaches showcasing a black or very burnt orange colour. But if only golden grains will do, Kamari Beach is one of the most popular and picturesque. Get ready to sit back and totally relax… See all beaches (5)

Eating and drinking

Grilled meats, freshly-netted seafood and sundried cherry tomatoes are all menu favourites in Santorini. But it doesn’t stop there on this island – expect locally-grown pomegranates to feature heavily as a garnish too. What’s more, white aubergine is a native vegetable that’s worth a try.
