Following our time on the island, this gallery puts our images of Jersey in the Channel Islands together in one place.
The island of Jersey, the most southern part of the British Isles, has miles of sandy beaches, plenty of history, loads of attractions, adventure sports, walking trails and restaurants and shopping to suit all tastes. The island is promoted as having it all as the perfect holiday destination.
Where is Jersey
Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, a group of British dependency islands in the English Channel. It sits approximately 100 miles south of the English coast and only 14 miles from the French coast. So it is a small island, measuring around 9 miles by 6 miles and has 36 miles of coastline. But with 450 miles of roads and country lanes it seems much bigger than it really is.
The climate in Jersey
Jersey has a temperate climate due to its location close to the north west coast of France. Generally it is relatively mild and perhaps a little warmer and sunnier than the south coast of Britain. Unsurprisingly, the warmest days are normally found in July and August, with average temperatures around 18-20°C.
The best time to visit will depend to an extent on what you are looking for. If it is the weather you are after, then July and August are the warmest months, although anytime between the end of May and mid October, which is basically the tourist season, will be mild.
What does Jersey have to offer
We think its highlights include the Corbiere lighthouse, Mont Orgueil Castle in the town of Gorey and Elizabeth Castle in St Aubin’s Bay, but there is much more to the island than these.
We dipped our toes into what Jersey has to offer and came away feeling that we only scratched the suface.
