Within this compact island there are so many things to see and do. For many, the greatest attraction is the coastline. Ranging from the towering cliffs in the north to the Atlantic rollers of the windy west to the long swathes of golden sand in the south, nowhere in Jersey is more than two miles from the sea. Don’t neglect inland, though – pretty countryside, old stone farmhouses and beautiful flowers.
Getting around is easy. For maximum flexibility, you should hire a car, so that you can seek out the hidden beaches, explore the glorious coastline and find some off the beaten track places. If you are staying in St Helier, be aware that parking can be limited and if you have a car, you may need to park in public car parks. These are generally free overnight, but there are charges during the day.
Even without a car, you can make use of the extensive bus network around the island which will take you to most of the main places of interest. For the more energetic, take to two wheels and hire a bicycle to explore the Green Lanes, but don’t forget that one of the absolute best ways of getting around is on foot!!
