The Channel island of Jersey is located around 100 miles (160km) south of mainland Britain and just 14 miles (22 km) from the coast of France.
A compact island of stunning coastline, golden sandy beaches and rich landscapes is just waiting to be discovered.
With British and French influences, a cosmopolitan city buzz happily co-exists with the chilled, coastal vibe.
With direct flights now operating from Dundee, it could be the place to go this summer for the best of both worlds.
The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey is a popular spot, with clean safe beaches for family friendly fun.
The entire island is simply beautiful with something for everyone on their holidays but here’s our top five spots to help you choose:
Jersey’s capital and the hub of the island with a great selection of accommodation, cafes, bars and shops. It’s also a good base for exploring the rest of the island.
A sleepy, charming town which feels like a good old-fashioned holiday spot with a pretty harbour.
St Brelade’s Bay
Jersey’s busiest beach resort, perfect for sporty types looking for some water based activities but also ideal for simply lazing around, soaking up the sun.
A picturesque spot near St Brelade’s but much more peaceful and quaint.
A pretty town and Jersey’s second largest parish that is packed with historical sights.
