Lying some 100 miles south of mainland Britain and a mere 14 miles from the coast of France is Jersey, the largest and most southerly of the Channel Islands.
With its population of over 100,000 people and an area of 45 square miles, you would be forgiven for thinking that the island could be little more than buildings. However as any islander will tell you; there is far more to Jersey than this.
The island is in fact made up of picturesque countryside and unspoilt coastline, with its sheer beauty and fascinating history making it a formidable rival for many larger and better-known holiday destinations.
The idyllic Jersey countryside features open fields bordered by granite walls and hedgerows, woodland teeming with wildlife and the island's iconic imposing cliffs and headlands.
One feature of Jersey's landscape which is impossible to ignore is the island's coastline. The island's scenery is dominated by stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, reminding Islanders and visitors of its power and compelling presence.
Jersey in fact benefits from one of the biggest tidal ranges in the world, as its position in the Bay of St Malo means that the island grows to double its size twice a day, as the tide ebbs and flows.
The island lays claim to nearly 30 beaches and coves which are all easily accessible by road or foot. Whether you want to relax on the golden sand of St Brelade's Bay, enjoy a picnic on the pebbled beach at Archirondel or explore the rock pools and sea caves at Plémont, there is something to suit every beach lover.
A holiday to Jersey will present you with more things to do and see than you have days to explore. With so much to see and do, every day of a trip to Jersey will present you with never-ending opportunities to try something you've never done before, explore somewhere new and discover something beautiful.
