The Bailiwick of Jersey includes two groups of small islands that are no longer permanently inhabited, the Minquiers and Ecrehous, and the Pierres de Lecq and other rocks and reefs.
If you love outdoor living, Jersey is perfect for you with miles of stunning beaches and interesting coastline ringed with forts and various defences from the colourful island history. There are remains of an ancient French forest from when the island was part of the continent, Palaeolithic sites like La Cotte de St Brelade, Neolithic burial sites, beautiful castles, gorgeous sandy beaches with high tides and 45 square miles of unspoilt countryside with 96 miles of cycle routes!
With the mild climate the island offers visitors a relaxing holiday where you can literally walk everywhere from St Helier to St Aubin's bay. Try blokarting on the beach for something totally different. Stay at the Durrell Wildlife Hostel and get a free ticket to the Durrell Wildlife Park too.
