- Island Summary:
The most southerly part of the British Isles (though not part of the UK) with 45 miles of coastline and feeling slightly more exotic than its close neighbour Guernsey, this island is definitely not one to rush. From the wilderness of the Jersey National Park on the west coast, the wild cliffs of the north coast and the lunar landscapes uncovered by low tide in the largest rocky inter tidal area in Europe to Jersey’s surfeit of historic sites – this island is a true cultural & outdoor feast.
- Look out for:
- Sumptuous seafood at The Crab Shack, Ouasine Bay
- Cream tea with fresh Jersey cream
- Exploring the Green Lanes where cyclists have priority
- Picking up your supper from the ‘Hedge Veg’ boxes en-route
- Circumnavigating the tidal island to explore Elizabeth’s castle, St Heliers
- Route description:
starting in St Heliers this anticlockwise route heads east on the main coast road to La Rocque with its tiny harbour and picturesque beach. The route leaves the main road at Mont Orgueil Castle on the east coast to explore the rocky coves of St Catherines Bay before arriving at the breakwater and its café at the northern end of the Bay. Heading inland slightly on the north-east tip the lane descend sharply into the quaint harbour village at Rozel Bay. The route across the north coast affords fantastic views of the cliffs, with good descents into Bonne Nuit Bay (with its great café), and La Greve du Lecq. Turning south, the west coast route skirts the vast, sandy expanse of St Ouen’s Bay to the lighthouse at St Corbiere, from where St Helier is reached on a mix or minor and main roads via the vast and popular St Aubin’s Bay
