In association with: Visit Jersey
Just across the Channel lies a small island that is curiously Brit…(ish). Jersey is both comfortably familiar and slightly exotic, and is an island full of surprises. Jersey is very easy to reach, just a short flight or ferry away, and visitors will be able to enjoy the feeling of the sand between their toes before they know it.
So for clients looking for unique experiences that make for a curious holiday, all within easy reach, here are five top things to do in the sunniest spot in the British Isles.
1. Experience the magic of a bioluminescence walk
When the sun goes down, the seabed lights up, and a guided walk with Jersey Walk Adventures is a great way to see this bioluminescence up close. A lunarlike terrain is also exposed across parts of the island when the tide rolls out.
2. Cycle to hidden beaches
Although Jersey is only nine by five miles in size, there’s a huge network of cycle lanes that criss‑cross the island, passing by hidden bays. Electric EVie bikes are quick and easy to hire.
3. Uncover its varied past
With dolmens (stone structures) older than the pyramids and castles from medieval times, there’s heritage to discover across the island. The Jersey War Tunnels from World War II is one of the most well-known attractions.
4. Stay in the most southern part of the British Isles
Seymour Tower, built in the 18th century, now doubles up as accommodation. It’s just over a mile off the south coast and is only accessible on foot during low tide.
5. Go foraging for wild ingredient
Jersey has a treasure trove of wild food, and a foraging tour with Jersey Wild Adventures is one of the best ways to explore the wilderness in the Jersey National Park and along the coast.
