Travel Club: Jersey - the small island with a big personality
4 NIGHTS FROM £389 pp
Departure Dates: March-July 2020
Stylish hotels, boutique shopping, fashionable cocktail bars and high-quality restaurants have been added to this channel island jewel, without ever losing its delightfully, often quaint, French “je ne sais quoi”, which has always captivated tourists.
The most famous example of the French touch is Mont Orgueil Castle, whose romantic, majestic look is often used to illustrate features about Jersey and which bears more than a passing resemblance to the more famous Mont Saint Michel in France.
Just 45 square miles when the tide is up, Jersey boasts some of the best sandy beaches in the Channel Islands – and that is a proud boast indeed when you see what’s on offer elsewhere.
Move inland, and nature lovers can enjoy exploring the green lanes, a network of around 50 miles of roads where pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders have priority over motor vehicles.
This part of Jersey is a real throwback, to far more innocent times, and contrasts sharply with the vibrant capital city of St Helier. Charmingly compact, with trendy Liberation Square at its epicentre, designer boutiques and high street names jostle for your attention within St Helier’s pedestrianised streets – perfect for that all-important spot of retail therapy.
Whether you’re looking for spas, shopping, golf, history, heritage, fun, forest or a gastronomic feast, you’ll find them in Jersey.
