Jersey may be small, but don’t underestimate its hidden depths. From winding 15mph ‘Green Lanes’ to scenic coastal touring routes, steep clifftop panoramas and cycle routes that hug the coast. If you’re keen to explore, you’ll find the journey just as much a part of the experience as the destination. From rental cars and cycle hire to the local bus network, there’s a transport option for everyone.
