"We are thrilled to have been chosen by TripAdvisor as the ‘Best Island in the British Isles’ in their 2015 Traveller’s Choice Awards. We adore our island and it’s wonderful to see just how many travellers love it too." - Jersey

 

Steeped in history

Jersey is fascinating. The island has been home to Celtic wanderers, buccaneering pirates, 18th-century soldiers and German occupying forces in World War II—and they've all left a unique mark on the island's landscape.

Jersey Heritage’s Ice Age Island exhibition holds one of the world’s biggest Celtic coin hoards and the 72,000 coins can be found on display at the Jersey Museum.

One visitor called the WWII artillery battery Battery Lothringen “a fantastic place… We managed to make it on a day when the main Command Bunker was open to the public, so we could go down into the bunker and look around the exhibits. Climbing up into the armoured turret and looking out through the periscope was great fun.” *

 

Paradise beaches

Jersey

The perfect beach makes the perfect summer holiday and Jersey has over 48 miles of stunning coastline and gorgeous beaches.

Whether you want to stretch out on golden sands, go rock-pooling with the kids or get adventurous and try surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding, you’ll find just the beach for you.

A recent St Brelade’s Bay traveller called the beach “absolutely beautiful. The sand was so soft and the water crystal clear, shallow and calm. To me it was more beautiful than the Whitsundays in Australia. Wished I could stay all day and learn to paddle board like some folk were doing. Paradise.” *

 

The great outdoors

Lovers of mother nature will find coastal paths offering great walking and breathtaking views.

There's an exciting array of local wildlife to spot, from visiting pods of dolphins to rare red squirrels.

Alternatively, visit Durrell Wildlife Park to find out about their conservation work and meet some of the world’s most endangered animals.
