Rediscover how to holiday (properly) in Jersey

Scroll to content

I’m Joe King, and I’m a filmmaker. Now that Brits are dusting off their swim shorts and rolling up their beach towels again, I wanted to understand a recent phenomenon. After a year of being house-bound, the furthest most Brits have travelled is from sofa to supermarket. They’ve spent more time at Tesco than dining al fresco. And after all this time, they’ve forgotten how to holiday. But in our hour of need, four Jersey heroes have stepped up to the plate to remind Britain how to holiday again. They call themselves, the Jersey Holiday Reps.

Join me as I learn more about these colourful characters and investigate how to be a tourist in Jersey.

How to catch a Jersey tan

Meet Marcus

Jersey’s the sunniest place in the British isles and Marcus is rather concerned that holiday-makers will bake in the hot sun like Jersey lobsters this summer. Whether you’re paddling your feet in the natural Lido Bathing Pool or rebalancing your spirit on a SUP board in St. Brelades Bay, visitors want to make sure they’re adequately protected on Jersey’s beaches this summer from sun hat to flip flops. Marcus demonstrates the proper way to apply sun-tan lotion on his buddy Josh and recommends a couple of tools of the trade. Don’t forget to cool off with a refreshing Bliss Brewery Ale in JB’s Ping Pong Bar.

Welcome to St Ouen

Meet Julia

Locals often joke that you need a passport when travelling to St. Ouen in the west of the island, but to Julia from Jersey Pearl, says it’s no laughing matter. Jersey may be nine by five miles, but as Julia explains, it gets pretty wild in the grasslands of St. Ouen. Before you know it, you can find yourself in an untamed landscape of undulating sand dunes, beating a path through trackless trails that lead to the hidden secrets of Jersey’s National Park, bursting with natural wildlife. If you don’t keep your wits about you, you might be forced to seek shelter for the night at The Atlantic Hotel, or forage for Jersey beef burgers at The Watersplash as the surf washes up on miles of beaches. What’s even wilder, is that you might just never want to leave...

Meet Tracey

Tracy is a local Blue Badge Guide from Jersey Uncovered and she’s got a bone to pick with walkers from overseas. She’s seen it all: gentlemen wearing brogues on the sand dunes of St. Ouen, ladies tottering about in high heels in Jersey’s 48 miles of cliff-path walks! Someone had to lace up their walking boots and show visitors how it’s done. If you want to stretch your legs after a long winter and fill your lungs with fresh sea air, try this four-day coast-to-coast walking itinerary which takes in miles of unspoiled coastlines from the rugged cliffs of Jersey’s north coast to the sheltered bays in the south. Just try not to let Tracy down!

Meet Florian

As Chef-Owner of Relish Delicatassen Florian is appalled at the dining etiquette displayed by visitors to Jersey. They’re waving their forks around haphazardly, skipping entreés altogether, failing to breathe in the sea air and French ambiance of Jersey’s restaurants, their dress-code is better suited for board meetings than cheese boards. So, in despair, he’s dishing out some much-needed advice on how to dine out on holiday in Jersey. If you want to fully refresh your holiday palate, try sampling Jersey’s Big Four on your visit (Jersey Royals, lobsters, oysters, and Dairy) with this three-day foodie guide
