Places to go on Jersey

Jersey’s beautiful landscape of long sandy bays, rolling valleys and rugged cliffs, all surrounded by pristine ocean, provide the perfect backdrop for sight-seeing and sporting activities on land, in the sea and up in the sky. If you want to try something different you should take a cruise along the south coast or rent a motorbike for a ride through the narrow country lanes. Jersey’s location in the English Channel has made it of strategic importance throughout history and the remnants of military defences and other facilities litter its landscape, particularly along the coast. Mont Orgueil Castle protected Jersey against French invasion for 600 years. The entire spectrum of adventure sports and activities is also on offer from jet skiing to rock climbing to sky diving. After a packed day of sightseeing and sports, you should head on into St Helier for a fun evening out on the town. Start with a meal at one of the restaurants serving traditional seafood dishes - moules and spider crab.

We want you to enjoy the best that Jersey has to offer and so here's a selection of our favourite things to see and do;

Jersey-WW11-Tunnels
Jersey War Tunnels

The German occupation of Jersey and the other Channel Islands during WWII is a dark but fascinating period in the island’s history. The Jersey War Tunnels, previously a German underground hospital, stand as a permanent reminder of the five-year occupation. The structure is made up of more than 1km of tunnels that took almost three and a half years to build and claimed the lives of dozens of slave workers. It is now home to a series of galleries detailing the occupation’s history through the stories of those who lived through it.

The popular family tourist attraction includes tractor rides, karting, a toboggan run, crazy golf and more.
