  • Cultural

    Look closely and the whole history of Jersey is written into its landscape. How will you discover it? Find ancient standing stones - traces of Jersey’s neolithic past - within sight of the sea, and trace the footsteps of invading armies through a 12th century castle to reach battlements overlooking the sea. Spot Jersey’s Martello Towers, built to keep the French at bay, and step back in time to the island’s occupation at Jersey War Tunnels. Add the finishing touches with a vintage bus tour around the island’s coastline.

  • Foodie

    Everything’s closer in Jersey - including our local food. This is an island where Jersey Royals can go from field to fork in hardly more than a day, where the tide brings an abundance of fresh shellfish, crabs and lobsters close to the island’s shores, and where you can forage for wild sea herbs along the coast. Take time to savour the authentic taste of Jersey everywhere from farm shops and field-side stalls to Michelin-starred feasts at top-rated restaurants.

  • Relaxing

    Jersey’s a small island but you’ll find plenty of space to breathe here, from walking along calm beaches in the fresh sea air to invigorating cliff path walks on paths lined with sweet-smelling gorse and wild flowers and exploring the peaceful gardens at Samares Manor or the Eric Young Orchid Foundation. Or perhaps you’d prefer to switch off at a luxury spa - Jersey has several top-rated spas, including the Ayurvedic Ayush retreat at the Hotel de France. Choose a spa with a sea view for the ultimate relaxation therapy.

    Find space to escape, unwind and relax
  • Atmospheric

    Dive into a few of Jersey’s signature experiences during your stay and create some unique memories. As an island, we just seem to have more sky than other destinations, so make the most of it by soaking up the starry nights - the clear North coast is the best for near dark sky star watching - or timing your first taste of Jersey’s local brew - Liberation Ale with a perfect sunset at St Ouen. Or why not take a fast RIB trip out to forgotten islands and reefs where you can walk for miles, spot dolphins and seals before heading back to circle Jersey’s coastline.
