For a small island, Jersey has a huge amount to offer. There are beaches, shopping and lots of sightseeing opportunities, including Jersey Zoo, Elizabeth Castle and the famous war tunnels, which make for a fascinating visit. The language, currency and driving on the left makes Jersey a real home from home, but its close proximity to France gives it a more continental feel – and climate!
St. Helier, Jersey's capital, is a vibrant sea-side town filled with a wide array of shops, cafes and restaurants. The harbour and marina area has a constant buzz of activity and with Jersey Museum, Elizabeth Castle and some beautiful parks on the doorstep, it's little wonder St. Helier is the jewel in Jersey's crown.
Just outwith St. Helier are the relaxing areas of St Clement's Bay and St. Saviour, offering guests the best of both worlds, as all the attractions and amenities of the island's capital can still be easily reached on foot or by a very short bus ride.
