3 ways to get away from it all in Jersey

How to find space to rebalance, refresh and revitalise


Don’t we all dream about those moments. The moments of peace, quiet and tranquility, when it feels as if we’ve escaped everyone and everything around us. Moments to rebalance, refresh and refuel. Somewhere where we can step out of our normal routine and take time to just refocus on life.  How to get the most out of getting away from it all on your Jersey holiday escape? Here are our top suggestions: 

Find space to reflect

Being close to water does us good.  In Jersey you’re never more than ten minutes from the water’s edge. But if you’re looking for something that’s not seaside, why not try a stroll around the tranquil Queen’s Valley Reservoir?

With a walk of just under 2 miles and plenty of benches to stop and soak up the peaceful views, listen to the birdsong and enjoy spending time in one of Jersey’s beautiful natural environments.

Why not drive a few minutes' from the reservoir following your walk and grab something to eat at The Crab Shack Gorey?

Space to breathe

With its miles of coastline, Jersey offers so many outstanding beach walks. Get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and fill your lungs with fresh sea air, it’s all waiting for you. For the ultimate in isolated beaches, Jersey’s St Ouen’s Bay stretches along the island’s west coast and gives you miles of wide sand to stroll along.

Walk along the sand for dramatic views of thundering Atlantic surf and as much fresh air as you can handle.

Stop for a well-deserved pint at the Watersplash Beach Bar & Diner with its surf view terrace.

Take the roads less travelled

Jersey’s green lanes, where traffic slows to 15 miles an hour, offer a fantastic opportunity to well and truly get away from it all. One attractive route is the walk from Rozel to Fliquet.

Start at Rozel, walk up the road from the harbour and keep left at the Rozel pub. Turn sharp left at the track to Le Scez and and the track will take you into a wooded valley and past the Dolmen du Couperon, a Neolithic burial site.

Refuel before your walk at The Hungry Man at Rozel and enjoy alfresco dining overlooking the harbour!
