Al fresco eating – Jersey’s local produce, straight from land and sea, deserves to be enjoyed in the fresh island air.

Try something new – Jersey’s waters are an ideal setting for a range of activities based around the sea and the tide. From surfing to stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking to coasteering, try a new skill or just settle back and watch the island’s coastline come to life from a sunny spot on the shore.
The beach is within reach – On the island of Jersey, the water’s edge is never more than 10 minutes away, which means you can escape to the calm of the coast whenever you like. Make like a local and check the tide times and wind forecast so you can choose a sheltered spot in the sun, from the secluded bays of the north to the long stretches of sand to the west and east. Find your perfect spot on the sand.
