See Jersey

With its unspoiled landscape and unique blend of British and French influences, Jersey really is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax and enjoy the famed hospitality of its people, and lose yourself in the Island’s winding lanes or on its breathtaking coast.

Located some 100 miles (160 kms) south of mainland Britain, Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles. In fact, it’s much closer to France, lying just 14 miles (22 kms) from its coast. Despite its compact size – just 9 miles by 5 miles (14 kms by 8 kms) – Jersey possesses a rich and varied landscape which sends visitors into sensory overload.

Arrive by sea and the rocky grandeur of La Corbière, the sweep of St Aubin’s Bay and picturesque Elizabeth Castle merely hint at Jersey’s wealth of history and sheer beauty. The scale of both means it easily rivals much larger and perhaps better-known destinations. Condorbreaks offer a wide choice of package holidays to the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey inclusive of sea travel with Condor Ferries.

Sunset by the sea

A place of beauty

Culture vultures will discover history at every turn, walkers will be captivated by the Island’s stunning natural beauty, and families can relax without a care on pristine beaches. It’s also the ideal place to clear your head, indulge in some exhilarating outdoor sports, or simply live the life!

It’s the sea that dominates the landscape, however, with stunning views of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean to be had from virtually every point on the island. The coastline itself is just as compelling, with majestic cliffs, exposed bays, sandy beaches and rocky coves all easily accessible by road or on foot.

We can boast our own truly beautiful sprawling national park here on Jersey. For more information please visit the National Trust of Jersey website. Wonderful to view by hire bike or hire car.

Jersey is a RAMSAR signatory, more details can be found on The Ramsar Convention for Wetlands website.

Rural lane

A place of adventure

Some 450 miles (720 kms) of roadway (a mix of fast routes and quiet rural lanes) create endless opportunities to discover the unexpected and impressive. There’s also a 45-mile (72 km) network of narrow country roads known as ‘Green Lanes’, with a speed limit of 15 mph (24 kph) and priority given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

Jersey’s unspoiled terrain and astounding array of flora and fauna make it an ideal destination for nature lovers. And the perfect way of taking in all the sights, sounds and smells is from the seat of a bicycle. Enjoy a leisurely scenic ride of just a few miles, or gear yourself up for the more challenging east to west and around the island routes.
