The largest of the Channel Islands, it has a coastline stretching 20 miles long, providing ample opportunities to unwind on uncrowded sandy beaches.
Despite encompassing an area just five miles long and five miles wide, Jersey offers plenty to curious visitors. Indeed, wherever visitors are based on their Jersey Holidays, they are never more than ten minutes from the sea. Said to be the sunniest spot in the British Isles, the island makes a wonderful holiday destination complete with a range of sights and attractions to explore. Closer to France than it is to England, it has a unique blend of European influences.
Around one third of the island's 108,000-strong population is based in its capital, St Helier. This bustling port town is home to a wealth of shopping and dining options, as well as attractions such as Elizabeth Castle, the botanic gardens and several great museums. Jersey breaks offer plenty outside of the capital, too. From ancient ruins and castles to the picturesque beaches of St Brelade, St Ouen and St Aubin, the island welcomes those seeking both exploration and relaxation.
The Old Courthouse in St Aubin is a cosy spot overlooking the harbour.
One of the best-loved pubs on the island, it offers a superb selection of beers, ciders and ales.
You should also be sure to try cabbage loaf on your trip. The dough of this traditional bread is baked in cabbage leaves to give it a unique scent. Perhaps sample it with another of the island's delicacies - nièr beurre, or black butter.
Jersey also has the perfect answer to satisfy sugar cravings - the Jersey wonder. This doughnut-like sweet snack is found all over the island, although specific recipes differ from parish to parish.
Of course, being surrounded by water, you can't help but be tempted by Jersey's seafood selection. Available in most restaurants, its freshness is hard to beat.
With great beaches, plenty of wonderful walks, fascinating local history and delicious food, we believe the answer is a resounding yes!
For the most part, Jersey is on par with Western European cities when it comes to prices. Shopping is cheaper here, however, as purchases are not subject to VAT.
British passport holders are not required to carry a passport to enter Jersey. However, most airlines and ferry operators are likely to require it as photo ID, so it's best to bring it with you.
Jersey has a generally mild climate, so can be enjoyed year-round, although winters can be damp. Visiting in the spring or autumn means fewer tourists, while the summer is the perfect time to take advantage of the island's beaches.
