Less than an hour away from London, Jersey is becoming a hot destination for holidaymakers.
It’s become best known as a real foodie haven, which is perfect for people that love being by the sea and having some culture thrown in too. I recently came back from Jersey and just knew I had to blog about it to let you know how much you can also enjoy a holiday in Jersey. Here are three top reasons why you all need to be heading on a weekend break to the most southerly point of the British Isles.
For such a tiny island Jersey is certainly blessed with an amazing coastline, the varied coastline runs for an amazing 50 miles and it’s just waiting for you to explore it. In the north you’ll find the rugged cliffs, never ending sand dunes in the west, then head to the south if you love strolling on a sandy beach and soaking up the sun – St Brelade’s Bay is the place you need to head for that. I would go as far as saying that the fact the water is quite shallow and it’s so far to the south that it’s the best place in Britain to swim.
As mentioned before this place has become a foodie heaven, it has earned that title for good reason. There are a number of Michelin-starred restaurants that will tantalize your taste buds. Obviously being surrounded by water you would expect there to be some amazing seafood being served up and you’d be 100% correct. The lobster me and my girlfriend has was to die for – make sure you leave any diet you’re on at home and eat as much as you possibly can! My personal recommendation is The Boathouse in St Aubin.
It’s So Close
You could aim to drive to Cornwall and make your way from there, but that involves the chance of being caught in traffic and having to work out the root you need to take. I always choose to fly out of Gatwick, Luton or City airport – the flights run regularly and the flight time is only 55 minutes. If you plan everything correctly you can leave the office and be stood feeling the sand between your toes within 2 hours, that sells it for me!
