Get in the water – With more than 30 different swimming spots to experience, from wild swimming to barefoot paddling in the shallows, on an island with as many beaches as Jersey, it’s easy to get into the water.

Al fresco eating – Jersey’s local produce, straight from land and sea, deserves to be enjoyed in the fresh island air. Whether your lunch spot is a beach picnic on the sea wall at St. Ouen’s or a luxury restaurant terrace just a few steps from the sand, don’t miss the chance to taste Jersey’s local food and seafood as it should be eaten – with a view of the sea.

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.
