The Bailiwick of Jersey comprises around ninety miles of beautiful and varied coast, with islands such as Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, and Herm accounting for almost one hundred and twenty miles.
Despite being less than twelve nautical miles off the French shore, Jersey’s largest and southernmost island retains a traditional English appearance thanks to resort towns like St Brelade’s.

St Brelades is also home to Jersey’s most popular beach, a vast arc of golden sand.
Other Jersey beaches include the spacious and sandy St Aubin’s Bay, which provides ample parking and jet-ski rentals, as well as the remote Beauport, accessible only on foot, with huge rock pinnacles molded by time into natural sculptures.
The island’s southern coast, in particular, is stunning.
Many of the remarkable cliffs in the south of Guernsey still have observation towers on them, which have long served as a natural barrier against attack and inaccessible rocky coves for smugglers to store their contraband.
The west coast’s Vazon, Grandes Rocques, and Cobo beaches provide ideal swimming and sunbathing conditions, while the north of the island, where L’Ancresse Common encloses breathtaking bays and shingle banks, provides ideal golfing and dog walking conditions.
Sark offers a spectacular isthmus known as La Coupee and a small population of six hundred people, all of which are accessible by car.
Herm and Alderney, both noted for their beautiful beaches, are well worth seeing.
The Channel Island Way, which was officially opened in spring 2011 as a long-distance footpath allows you to explore the entire length of the archipelago on foot.
