Discover the delights of Jersey’s stunning South Coast en-route to the delightfully picturesque fishing village of St. Aubin with its alfresco eating, quaint pubs, quality shopping and sightseeing.
All over Jersey there is a complete alphabet of outdoor activities that run from archery and abseiling to zip wiring zorbing, whilst the water activities can be as relaxing or as adrenalin fueled as you wish, from windsurfing to sea kayaks, snorkelling and sailing to coasteering and diving.
There’s perhaps no better way to explore than by foot, whether you prefer a slow stroll across the sands or hike along the cliff top paths, there’s something for everyone. Visit our section on History & Heritage for guides on nature and coastal walks or alternatively plan your visit during the annual Spring and Autumn Walking Weeks.
Talking of festivals, carnivals and events, Jersey really does cover all interests, be it music, food and drink, heritage, agriculture, the arts and so much more besides. Some of the most popular events include the
International Air Display, when the skies of Jersey come alive annually in September; one of Europe’s most spectacular carnivals, Battle of Flowers, takes place each August with flower festooned floats, musicians, dancers and entertainers; Liberation Day on the 9th May in the Channel Islands is a big occasion with parades, music and entertainment; music also features prominently particularly in September when the Jersey Live Festival of Music takes place.
Then there’s The Tennerfest which runs for six weeks (October-early November) where Jersey food and drink specialties can be tried and tasted with special menus starting from as little as £10.
