Travel Guide – Top 5 things to do in Jersey

    June 22, 2017

    Recently an opportunity came up to visit the island of Jersey which I couldn’t say no to. It’s only a 45-minute flight from London and yet I had never made the time to visit. Jersey is the island of good food and relaxation. I spent two extremely relaxing nights there and here are the things which I’d recommend when visiting Jersey.

    1 – Hike
    There’s so much beautiful and untouched nature in Jersey. Therefore, a hike is something which I highly recommend. Choose your starting point and just take a walk. My sister and I chose the St Brelade area and hiked all the way down to Beauport beach. We got lost a few times, each time being pleasantly surprised by the scenery. Beauport beach is very secluded, quiet and scenic.

    2 – Eat Oysters
    Jersey is known for it’s fantastic oysters and they are known for a good reason. I mean it when I say I had the best oysters in my life at Oyster Box. If the champagne butter oyster is all you eat during your trip to Jersey then so be it! I’d be back just for that. Luckily you can also find them at Banjo’s near Jersey’s famous Central Market, which brings me to my next point.

    3 – The Central Market
    This market is very iconic to Jersey and popular amongst locals. It’s worth a visit for the old architecture and also for the wide range of shops with local produce. You’ll spot anything from fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meat to colourful flowers.

    4 – Elizabeth Castle
    This castle was built on a rock in St Aubin’s Bay. Uniquely it can either be reached by a ferry or you can actually walk there when the tide is low.

    5 – Visit a spa
    Jersey is the land where cars are not allowed to drive more than 40mph. That is Jersey for you, slow paced. This island is full of spas where you can treat yourself to individual sessions or a full day of pampering.

    I don’t know why it took me 10 years of living in London before I paid a visit but now that I have, I’ll definitely be back!
