Steep cliffs, clad in gorse and bracken, overlook perfect hidden bays and inlets, while an uninterrupted coastal path climbs and dips, roller-coaster like, its entire length. Little wonder it’s where you’ll find some of the finest walking in Jersey.
St. Mary's northern loop.
Despite appearances to the contrary, St. Mary is not the smallest of Jersey’s parishes by area, but due to its small size and rural nature, it’s by far one of the quietest. The north boundary is the sea, with magnificent wild cliffs, which are a riot of colour in spring and early summer. Finish and start at St. Mary’s Country Inn for some well-earned refreshment – the pub has a reputation for excellent food and ale.
Sorel Point to Devil's Hole.
From the northern tip of Sorel Point, join the cliff path heading west. This is a fantastic way to discover what makes Jersey’s shoreline so special. The North coast is made up of high jagged cliffs, intersected by secluded coves and valleys. The cliff paths will take you deeper into Mourier Valley before arriving at Devil’s Hole. The Priory Inn is the perfect place to rest your feet and possibly grab a bite to eat or drink.
