Trips to the Brit…(ish) seaside.

If you’re looking for reassuringly soggy British weather, we’re sorry to break the news that Jersey is the sunniest spot in the British Isles, but if you want wet weekends, we’re surrounded by the stuff. Dip a toe in 24 pristine sandy bays washed clean by the biggest tide in Europe. We love long car journeys as much as you do, so buckle up for a ten minute slog to the sea in any direction. And we know it wouldn’t be a British summer without jostling for towel space on a bustling beach. We’re sorry to disappoint, as we’re still working on the crowds to fill our wide open beaches with soft sands and crystal clear waters. In the meantime, we hope you won’t mind the odd bottle-nosed dolphin for company?

If you’re looking for wide open wild spaces, Jersey beaches have the power to take your breath away and leave you standing in awe. From cliff-encircled coves to vast expanses of lunar landscapes, here are our top six breathtaking beaches that are waiting to be discovered in the island break.
