Get away from it all

The best of Jersey’s secret views


Time for a break? Getting away from it all and finding space and time for yourself is easier than you might think on the island of Jersey. Even though the island’s on the small size, you’ll find hidden beaches, quiet cliff path walks and plenty of tranquil countryside to explore. Slip into Jersey’s relaxed pace of life and find your space - whether it’s a stunning view across the sea or the calm surroundings of the island’s rural heart, criss-crossed by ‘green lanes’ where the traffic slows to 15 miles an hour. Why not try…

Grantez headland

Probably one of the best vantage spots to admire the sweep of St. Ouen’s bay, this National Trust-owned headland with its trees, gorse and natural heathland is a natural escape. Look out for Jersey’s green lizards as well as kestrels and sparrowhawks, visit ancient dolmen sites and take time to breathe in the fresh sea air, straight from the Atlantic.

Noirmont Point

With its gorse-covered cliffs and bunkers left over from the German occupation, Noirmont Point is a fascinating area to explore. Head west for stunning views down to Portelet beach, or east to explore the Battery Lothringen, the World War II Coastal Artillery Observation Tower with its views across St Aubin’s Bay back to St Helier.

Find your own deserted beach spot

Fancy having the beach to yourself? Get off the beaten track and you’ll find some beautiful hidden gems along the island’s 45 miles of coastline. From tiny sandy beaches like La Coupe, tucked away on the north coast to the pretty pebble beach just steps away from St. Aubin’s village, Jersey’s full of spaces where you can get away from it all.

King of the castle

Climb to the top of Mont Orgueil Castle for magnificent views across the bay of Grouville. Once you’ve attempted the steep castle staircases, you’ll be rewarded with superb vistas, from the eastern coast of the island, across Gorey’s steeply sloping Jersey Royal potato fields, or cotils as they’re known, and the fishing harbour out to the French coast. Time your visit with low tide as the water recedes to a mile away from shore, uncovering the oyster beds and the route out to the 18th century Seymour Tower, one of the island’s coastal defense towers
