Hugged by a cobalt sea and sandy beaches, Jersey offers the experience of a real get-away holiday destination.
Travelling to our delightful isle has never been easier. Jersey nestles between England and France, which means you can fly here in under an hour from over 20 great value regional UK airports or sail by fast ferry. If travelling from Europe, there are regular connecting flights from most London airports.
Although only 9 miles by 5 miles in size, Jersey has an exceptionally varied geography: Dramatic cliffs in the North, offshore reefs in the East, sweeping bays in the South, and wind swept sand dunes in the West give way to a diverse range of entertainment, activities, cuisine and culture all within easy reach.
If the great outdoors is your thing – why not enjoy the fresh sea air? With stunning countryside, cliff paths and miles of sandy beaches, you’ll rarely find more variety so close by. For those with a penchant for all things energetic not only can you experience beautiful surroundings but a surprising range of activities from abseiling to surfing. Heritage lovers will not be disappointed either – Jersey has a unique history and outstanding sites of interest from Neolithic burial chambers to Napoleonic pre-Martello Towers.
Whatever atmosphere you are seeking, we are sure our idyllic island of Jersey can provide something to inspire you

Once you get here there is so much to do, in so little time – as all destinations in the island can be reached within 20 minutes from the Hotel de France. There is something to suit every taste – whether it’s playing a round of golf on one of three 18-hole championship golf courses, enjoying adrenaline-fuelled activities on the sea or sipping wine at local vineyards.
Jersey offers 6 world class golf courses including 3 championship courses for 9 or 18 holes. All just a ‘short drive’ from the hotel.
Jersey is perfect for those that love walking and the outdoors. You can explore the island on foot with the help of free downloadable self guides, group guided tours and personal tours.
With more than 350 miles of cycle network, 2 wheels make an enjoyable way to enjoy the beautiful scenery around the island. More challenging routes are available for serious riders.
Jersey also has a truly rich variety of festivals and events scheduled throughout the year; highlights include the Battle of the Flowers carnival in August or the La Fête de Noué Christmas festival early in December.
