Spring is my favourite time of year - our island comes back to life after the sleepy winter months with a vista of plants, fauna and produce. St Aubin, where you’ll find our deli, gets its buzz again - local folk and visitors enjoy the pavement cafés, great food and time spent together - after work I might head to the Old Court House to meet friends - we are lucky to be part of a thriving village steeped in history. The days are longer and the gentle light gets us out to explore our countryside and coastline. I take long walks along the sweep of St Ouen and hike the North Coast or Grosnez - wonderful spots for picnics with views you can’t beat. I take my paddle board out and have fun in the ocean with friends and enjoy early season barbeques. The season is also a time of excitement for us at the deli. Our producers start delivering fantastic local produce for us to sell and put on our menu the famous Jersey Royals of course but asparagus, tomatoes, courgettes, freshly caught mackerel and seafood are just a few. It is time of abundance and a great time of year to sample the best of what Jersey food has to offer and get out and enjoy a landscape you won’t find anywhere else. 7

Sophie introduces our first edition of What’s On! As a Visit Jersey island ambassador, she and her deli are proponents of the new Jersey; passionate, vibrant and committed to creating the best for the island. In this case, a great deli to add to the village mood of St Aubin.

Originally from Germany, Trudie has made the island her home and now, with her husband Derek, guides island visitors on walks and kayak adventures. We talk to her about her life as a Bronze Badge Guide and how she spends her time on island and how you should spend yours!

After some time spent writing on other local publications, Abi joined us at Factory this year to work on What’s On. For this edition she did some interviewing and helped us assemble our content in addition to compiling some ‘picks of six’ shortlist features.

THINGS TO KNOW WHILST YOU’RE HERE

Where are we?

Jersey’s a lot closer to France (around 14 miles at the closest point) than it is to England (closer to 100 miles) and surrounded by four other main Channel Islands and a handful of smaller inhabited and uninhabited islands.

Arriving and leaving

If you arrive by air you’ll be one of 1.4 million passengers per year to use Jersey Airport in the west of the island. Served by buses and taxis for onward travel right outside the arrivals hall, hire car services are also available inside the arrivals hall. Foreign exchange and postal services, including posting excess baggage are available in the departures hall.

If you’re wearing your sea legs, you’ll have arrived in St Helier, Jersey’s capital, in the southeast of the island. Like the airport, buses and taxis are available outside the arrivals hall although central St Helier is only a short walk away. Scheduled ferries operate from here between the Channel Islands, England and France and for those with their own boat Jersey Marinas offer a whole host of services for which they’ve earned ‘5 Gold Anchor’ status, an internationally recognised accolade.

Think of Jersey’s climate as being like the UK, but generally warmer and sunnier. That’s what being slightly closer to the equator gets us and that’s just fine with both locals and visitors alike!

Population

Since the last census in 2011 it’s estimated that our population has grown to around 102,500. You’ll find most of us in and around St Helier leaving most of the northern, easterly and westerly parishes unspoilt and rural in nature.

Money

Pounds Sterling is the legal tender but we also have our own banknotes and coins which are classed as accepted tender elsewhere in the UK, people can take it, but they don’t have to - so don’t forget to spend your last few pound notes on souvenirs before you leave. If you forget though, a pound note also makes a great souvenir. Also, if you hold one of our bank notes up to the light you’ll not see Queen Elizabeth II’s image in the hologram but the image of one of our own royalty.

Driving

GET SET

Climate

If you get lost, it’s worth bearing in mind that most locals won’t know where the A6 or B12 roads are, because all of our roads bear their own names in addition to these classifications. Your best bet? Point on a map or tell someone where you’re trying to get to! If you’re renting a car you’ll notice that the registration plate bears a white ‘H’ on a red background which denotes it as a hired vehicle. You’d best not flag down one of these for directions as they’re probably lost too. Like the United Kingdom, we drive on the left hand side of the road and all speed limits are posted in MPH. The maximum permissable speed limit anywhere is 40mph, with a large number of 30mph and 20mph zones. In the rural parishes you may also notice signs denoting ‘Green Lanes’ where the maximum speed limit is 15mph and right of way is given to those walking, cycling or riding horses. You’ll likely also come across a local driving phenomenon known as filter in turn. As you approach one, priority is given to traffic on your right. After they’ve made their move it’s your turn and traffic on your left will yield to you. It’s a great way to keep traffic flowing and once you see it in action it’ll all make sense. The mini roundabout at the bottom of Beaumont Hill is a prime example. Don’t panic, you’ll be fine!

Parking

On street parking requires the use of either a yellow disc or Paycard (available from convenience stores and hire car pick up points) to be displayed inside the car as signposted. Parking on yellow lines is prohibited at all times. Multi storey car parks also require Paycards with the exception of the Sand Street and underground Waterfront car parks which have ticket machines that accept both cash and cards as payment.

Taxis

There are taxi ranks at the airport, harbour and around St Helier where you’ll find a driver awaiting a fare at almost all times of the day and night. Different tariffs apply depending on whether it’s day or night as well as on public holidays and payment is in cash. Private hire cabs are also available to hire if you’re not near a taxi rank and the Tourist Information Centre (01534 859000) can provide you with a selection of taxi telephone numbers.

Buses

Buses operate throughout the island to and from Liberation Station in St Helier. Listed beaches, landmarks and attractions have the route number in their listing. Call Liberty Bus on 01534 828555 or visit www.libertybus.je for more details.

A LITTLE MORE ISLAND KNOWLEDGE

History The earliest evidence of human activity in Jersey dates to about 250,000 years ago and it was only 6000 years ago that Jersey was part of mainland Europe before rising tides cut us off and made us an island. During the American Wars of Independence, two attempted invasions of the island were made. In 1779, the Prince of Orange William V was prevented from landing at St Ouen’s Bay and on 6 January 1781 a force led by Baron de Rullecourt captured St Helier in a daring dawn raid, but was defeated by a British army led by Major Francis Peirson in the Battle of Jersey. Jersey was the

fourth-largest ship building area in the 19th-century British Isles, building over 900 vessels around the island. Jersey was occupied by Nazi German troops between 1940 and 1945, with the Channel Islands being the only British soil occupied during World War II. This period of occupation saw about 8,000 islanders evacuated, 1,200 islanders deported to camps in Germany, and over 300 islanders sentenced to the prison and concentration camps of mainland Europe. Many islanders remained and the island was liberated by British troops on 9 May 1945, now celebrated as a public holiday locally.

People Mostly a mix of Norman French and British settlers, Jersey’s community has also been enriched by the influences of the number of Europeans who also call Jersey their home. If you hear anybody referring to a Crapaud (French for toad) or a Jersey Bean they’ll be talking about one of the natives.

Honorary Police In addition to the States of Jersey Police force, who serve islandwide, each of Jersey’s twelve parishes has its own police service that only have jurisdiction within the boundaries of their own parish, also known as the Honorary Police, who are headquartered at each of the parish halls.

Seyiz les beinv’nus à Jèrri (That’s Jèrriais for ‘Welcome to Jersey’) Language The native language, which you’ll see displayed in a few locations around the island such as the airport and harbour is called Jèrriais but you’ll probably not hear it spoken unless you find yourself in the deepest, darkest of rural parishes such as St Ouen, where 8% of parishioners speak it according to the results of a 2012 survey. English is the most widely spoken language.

Economy The local economy thrives from a combination of offshore finance, tourism and agriculture. Bathe at our beaches, enjoy our local attractions, dine on our fresh produce including world famous potatoes and dairy products from the herds of local Jersey cows.

Passports Jersey has an interesting relationship with both the UK and Europe in that it’s a crown dependency, meaning that despite having our own independent government, locals answer to the Queen and the British military support our interests should the need arise. Despite being part of Great Britain, Jersey is not part of the United Kingdom. We’re also not part of the European Union but are a member of the EEC. Confused? You’ll fit right in!

Tides Jersey’s tidal range is one of the largest in the world with a range of around 12 metres. We’ve also got some of the cleanest water in the British Isles, which is a winning combination when it comes to keeping our beaches great. It’s worth noting that because of the huge tidal range that the sea level does rise quickly and it’s easy to get caught out so be mindful that

Decoding the dialect Whilst English is the most widely spoken language here in Jersey, if you find yourself interacting with some of the purest of locals you might notice a distinctive intonation that’s likely a remnant of our Norman roots despite sounding closer to a South African twang. They’re hard to find these days but they’re definitely out there, mostly hidden away in the rural parishes. I should know, I’m descended from them and occasionally find myself pronouncing an ‘arn’ sound as ‘on’ in a way that’d likely disgust the Queen. The example sentence below sums this up

relatively succinctly. If you find yourself talking to somebody who pronounces words like this there’s a good chance they’ll be able to give you reliable directions. Just make sure you’re pronouncing the place names properly. To give you a head start we’ve listed a few page right.

This is Grosnez Castle in St Ouen, but you can call it ‘grow-nay castle’ (oh, and it’s in ‘saint one’)

Getting around without getting confused: If you refer to a road on a map as, for example, the B12, the vast majority of us locals will have absolutely no idea where it is. Your best bet? Tell us where you’re trying to get to and we’ll use landmarks to guide you.

Drives & Rides West is best. People who live on the east of the island will contest it, but when it comes to road infrastructure the west just flows better. Which is perfect for driving or riding... Whether you prefer to travel on two wheels, four wheels (or even three) and enjoy twisting a throttle, turning your feet on the pedals or putting the pedal to the metal there’s a little scenic route along Jersey’s west coast that can’t be beaten on a warm summer evening.

Combining climbs with descents, stunning coastal scenery, long straights (remember the 40mph limit though) and some technical twists and turns it really doesn’t matter what your weapon of choice is, you’re bound to enjoy owning your own little part of the road whilst you soak it all in.

There’s rarely a time of day where there’s no traffic here, but good things come to those who wait Skip this bit and keep to the main road, there’s a 20mph zone down there and nobody likes one of those. Except maybe pedestrians. Be patient, these traffic lights take an eternity to change Take this scenic loop and visit Corbiére Lighthouse (it’s lovely at sunset)

Continue down to the Five Mile Road for three miles of coastal scenery... What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey

...But if you fancy a little detour go up here So that you can drop into the bay from under the cover of trees and steer your way through a few twisty bends back towards the sea Take a left and continue around the coast There’s a nice twisty bit here, remember to behave yourself! Keep to the coast and stop for a cuppa at Portinfer or Plémont bay to soak it all in The open road awaits!

my perfect weekend

PAUL DUFTY SUMAS RESTAURANT

If you’ve seen Jersey’s ambassadors campaign online, you might recognise Paul Dufty, talking local produce and hospitality. Following time spent working in the USA, Paul met his wife Tara in London and they chose to return to Jersey to settle and raise a family. We caught up with him to talk seafood and sunsets and learn about how he spends his perfect weekend.

24 What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


The start to my day is often dictated by our four legged friends (Paul has a boxer and an English bulldog). Lately we’re been taking them down to Ouaisne, it’s great for the dogs, a perfect flat sandy beach that they love. We’ll sometimes pop into the Smugglers for a coffee or, if the weather’s right, grab a bacon roll at Kismet Cabana. Bacon rolls and coffee at the beach is somewhat of a Jersey tradition. Once the dogs are tired, we’ll head back home, grab all our gear and head to a beach for the day. We have two young children; Archie and Isla, and the beach governs our time quite a lot. We usually head to St Ouens - it has big rock pools, great surf and the best sunsets. If it’s not a beach day, we’ll head to Tamba Park. We’ve got a membership there and the kids love it. It has indoor and outdoor options for them so we’re covered come rain or shine. It’s not often I get chance for a Saturday to myself but if I’m free of kids on a sunny day, you’ll find me in the garden, probably half naked! If I’m organised I’d try and get a group together and book a RIB trip with Jersey Seafaris, and head across to Sark or Carteret. It’s only a short trip over, about 40 minutes, but feels a million miles away. And lunch...

Once we’re all getting hungry, we’d up off the beach at St Ouens to EL Tico. It has great views and we all like the atmosphere. If it’s just the adults, we’d scoot round to the Oyster Box in St Brelade’s Bay. As a restauranteur, I’ll be looking for good seafood. You’ll find me there enjoying oysters, crab or scallops, maybe with a glass of wine. Perfect afternoons are spent... Relaxing on the beach! We’ll have walked in the morning so the priority is letting the kids enjoy the beach. We’ve been doing a lot of rock-pooling lately as the kids have got older. A wander down to L’Etacq or going across the other side of the island to La Rocque. Our kids love it and you feel really part of Jersey... As the sun begins to set, we’ll head back home. If Tara and I get the night to ourselves, we’d be embracing the rare chance to head into town. If the weather is good we like to sit outside. Ce Soir, at the Weighbridge have an al fresco area and do a great cocktail so that would be our choice for an aperitif.

Saturday night is... When it comes to eating out we always like to try somewhere new. Number 10 on Bond Street opened recently and it’s where I chose for my birthday. The Tuna Carpaccio with ponzu, mango & papaya, wasabi, puffed wild rice and coriander was amazing and the Brill was great. They change the menu regularly based on produce and it tells me they’re cooking something they’re passionate about producing. I respect the hard work of a chef operator and Joe Baker there is doing good things.

Blind Pig page 144

If we finish dinner early enough, we’ll grab a cocktail in the Blind Pig - it’s intimate with atmospheric decor and, they produce excellent, quality cocktails. Coupled with great staff, it’s on point and a great way to finish your evening.

my perfect weekend

Places to check out

And the morning after... The best thing I could wish for on a Sunday is a lie in. Once I’ve stirred and am ready to get going it would be back to the beach. On a Sunday we’d head up to Greve de Lecq and grab some pancakes at Colleens Cafe. If I wanted something more I’d go to Sumas! I genuinely go to my own restaurant sometimes! Our Sunday brunch is pretty special and I’d be crazy not to mention it.

Colleens Cafe page 138

Sumas

page 136

And then... It’s all about preparation. With afternoon barbeques in mind, we’d stop at the Fresh Fish Company and grab a lobster. It’s indulgent I know, but this is my perfect weekend! They do good fresh breads and pates too. We’d take our purchases home, make some salads and head down to St Ouen to meet some friends. A friend of ours, Joe, runs Little Joes Surf School so we often base ourselves near there in the middle of the bay. It’s called L’Ouziere Slipway but you’d struggle to find a local that knows that, I had to look it up. Fortunately Google does! Playing down there with the kids and having a swim or surf if there are waves is pure Jersey bliss. If I had friends visiting and looking to do something in the afternoon I’d take them for a walk up around Plemont or Grosnez. There are beautiful cliff paths with stunning views. If I was feeling more active I’d get onto the rocks on the north coast. Jersey has some great coasteering, navigating around the cliffs setting off from Grève de Lecq.

And if you’re still hungry!? As I love to cook I’m as likely to spend my Sunday evening entertaining and cooking for friends and family at home. If I hadn’t already overdosed on seafood I’d make sure there were some crab and scallops in there in some way or we’d roast a rib of beef, coupled with a fantastic red wine! If we were venturing out on a Sunday evening St Aubin makes the perfect setting. It should definitely be on the list for any visitor. We walk down, as it’s close to home (it’s better to get the bus as parking can be limited). The area has maintained a quaint village feel but is very well served in terms of restaurants and places to visit. The views and location of the upper deck at the Boat House would be my choice. Great harbour view of the fishing boats’ masts clinking and the variety of food on offer was enough to keep my mother in law happy last year! We’ll walk home along the festoon lit promenade towards St Helier listening to the waves lapping on the sea wall, with the glow of town glistening in the distance. Walking around the bay at night gives a feeling of relaxion that make you reflect and truly realise how special Jersey is and what a great place it is to live.

SEE TEN TO TRY

SEE / Ten visual wonders Our beautiful island offers incredible areas of natural beauty. If you’re looking for a quiet day then there are drives, views and elements of our heritage that provide relaxation and inspiration. Here are ten to check out this Spring. 1

THE FIVE MILE ROAD

2

THE SAND DUNES Les Blanches Banques is a unique natural habitat offering commanding views over the open coastal space of St Ouen, offering great walks for all levels of rambler, including those that want to run down the sand!

3

CORBIERE LIGHTHOUSE

4

BEAUPORT BAY

If you stand at Corbiere and look to L’etacq, it’s five miles. Ironically, the five mile road is a little shorter. Built to take tourists along our west coast bay, it’s one of the island’s nicest beach-side drives.

Corbiere ‘the place of the ravens or crows’ is the location for the world’s first concrete lighthouse. The light can be seen for 18 miles, warning sailors of the dangers of straying too close in the island’s rough coastal waters and rocks. A beach for ramblers! Take a short stroll around the cliff paths from popular St Brelade and down the steps to Beauport and enjoy one of the lesser known bays. Perfect for a quiet picnic or beach day. Jump up every step back up if you can...

ELIZABETH CASTLE

6

LA HOUGUE BIE

7

THE DOLMENS The Dolmens are stone graves dating from the Neolithic period usually made up of three or more upright stones supporting a large flat horizontal stone. Jersey’s neolithic sites range over a wide period from around 4800 BC to 2250 BC.

8

MONT ORGUEIL Sitting high on the outcrop that looks down over Gorey village Mont Orgueil, or Gorey Castle as it’s more colloquially known, is a great walk around offering commanding views from the top and dressing up for kids.

9

ST CATHERINE’S BREAKWATER

Whether you arrive from the airport or across the bay, you can’t help but spot this beauty, sat on a rocky islet in St Aubin’s Bay, Elizabeth Castle has defended Jersey for more than 300 years. Walk out along the causeway, at low tide!

SEE

5

One of the ten oldest buildings in the world. Enter one of Europe’s finest passage graves and discover Jersey’s neolithic history at this tranquil and spiritual heritage site. Nominated for a Visit England Hidden Gem Award. TEN TO TRY

Originally planned as a harbour for the Royal Navy, to counter the threat of a French invasion, the breakwater was started in 1847 but shallow water meant plans were abandoned. We prefer it like this.

LES MINQUIERS / ECREHOUS

10

Two groups of beautiful uninhabited islands and rocks off Jersey. Take a rib trip and find yourself relaxing in the peace on the sand banks that uncover at low tide, pure bliss.

What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


Anne Port

NE

Bonne Nuit

N

A quiet and rarely crowded east-facing stretch of sand that catches the morning and midday sun. Bus route 2 to St Catherine (summer only)

A tiny fishing harbour with space to play on the sand, picnic or catch some sun, but not ideal for swimming. Worth visiting for the excellent beach cafe. Route 4 (summer only)

Archirondel

Bouley Bay

NE

N

This popular beach with an excellent beach cafe is pebbly at first but sandy at low tide when the water stays shallow for some way out, perfect for paddling. East-facing, Archirondel loses the sun in the late afternoon. Bus route 2 to St Catherine (summer only)

A winding hill leads down to this steep pebble beach with deep water for competent swimmers. The bay is home to one of Jersey’s scuba-diving schools and you’ll often see divers bubbles appearing on the surface here. Route 4 (summer only)

Beauport

Green Island

SW

A real sun-trap on the south coast, once you’ve trekked down the steep path from the car park and crossed the pebbles, you’ll reach a sheltered south-facing beach with golden sand and shallow turquoise water, ideal for swimming. Route 12 or 14 to St Brelade’s Bay, then walk along the cliffs

SEE

No matter how you spend your time on Jersey, you’ll no doubt want to feel either the sand between your toes or breathe in the fresh sea air as you explore our beaches and coves. They each have their own unique personality. Choose the one that’s right for you...

SE

A locals’ favourite, this sheltered south-facing beach is a real sun trap where soft sand, rock climbing and rock pool adventures await. The tide goes out a long way, so take care with the swift incoming tide and pick times close to high water to enjoy swimming or paddling. Route 1 towards Gorey

73


SEE The characterful beach at Grève de Lecq

Grève de Lecq

A Martello tower looks out over Ouaisne

NW

La Rocque Harbour

SE

The most popular of the north coast beaches, Grève de Lecq’s sheltered sands and rockpools are ideal for families but loses the sun in late afternoon. Don’t miss the excellent cafés and local pubs close by. Route 9

Discover a small sandy beach hidden away with rock pools galore for a natural playground. But caution - take care not to get stranded on the rocks with the incoming tide. Route 1

Grouville Bay / Long Beach

Marine Lake, St Aubin’s Bay

SE

S

A long stretch of sand that leads to Gorey harbour, with Mont Orgueil Castle as a backdrop. Plenty of parking, beach cafés and kiosks as well as a childrens’ beachside playground and soft sand make Long Beach a local favourite. Route 1, 1A and 2 to Gorey

This large tidal pool dates from Victorian times and was built as a safe place for sea swimming when the tide retreats. Recently restored, it’s now one of the largest marine lakes in the UK. The sheltered beach and swimming spot is overlooked by Elizabeth Castle, with La Fregate Café at the top of the slipway. Just outside St Helier

Havre des Pas

Ouaisne Bay

S

Close to the centre of St Helier, this sandy beach is worth a visit to see the architecture of the art deco pool, filled by the tide each day. The beach is easy to access, and safe for swimmers. Route 1

SW

This south west facing beach is the wilder contrast to the adjoining St Brelade’s Bay. The beaches are connected at low tide, or cross the pine-rich headland and walk along the sea wall next to the protected Ouaisne Common towards locals’ favourites, The Smugglers Inn or the funky Kismet Cabana. No buses

St Aubin’s Bay

SW

A pristine sandy cove reachable by a long flight of steps, where the intrepid are rewarded with a stunning natural playground of rock pools, sea caves and an excellent beach café perched on the cliffs. There’s safe swimming when the sea is calm, and surfing when its wilder, and the beach is completely covered at high tide. Route 8 (with a walk down to the café.)

A crescent of south-facing sand from St Helier to St Aubin, the beach is in full sun for most of the day. With several beach cafés along the promenade front, look out for the softest sand around the Gunsite café, popular with volleyball players, and there is waterskiing and jet ski hire close by (La Haule). Most west-bound bus routes

Portelet Bay

St Brelade’s Bay

SW

SW

Climb down the long flight of steps and you’ll be rewarded with a sunny, sheltered and sandy beach circling Janvrin’s Tomb at the centre. Portelet Bay Café serves excellent pizza throughout the season, and the pub at the top of the steps, the Old Portelet Inn, is a family favourite with an indoor play area. 12A

The beautiful beach at St Brelade’s Bay is one of the island’s busiest, and is a visitor favourite because of its soft sand, safe swimming, beach activities and seaside cafés and restaurants. Voted as number three in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards, this stunning south-facing beach is in the sun for most of the day. Route 12 or 14

Rozel Bay

St Ouen’s Bay

NE

This magnificent beach is a natural playground for surfers and adrenaline seekers. It’s where one of the oldest surfing clubs in Europe has its home and makes a stunning setting for beach walks. Swimmers should take care in the strong currents and stick to the flagged zones. The beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the season. Route 22

75

A small fishing village lined with beach huts and harbourside cottages, Rozel is more of a fishing harbour than a place to swim. But at low tide, Rozel’s small stretch of white sand is safe for children to play on, just look out for the Rozel geese! Worth a visit for the excellent restaurants, pubs and the Hungry Man harbour-side beach kiosk. Route 3

Willkommen in Jersey … der größten unter den Kanalinseln – der Bodensee dennoch gut viermal, die Insel Rügen achtmal so groß wie Jersey. Wir haben Trudie Hairon-Trox danach gefragt, was eine Bayerin auf diesem Eiland hält – abgesehen von der Liebe. Die Antwort kam ohne Zögern: das Meer und die Vielfalt der Natur und Kultur auf kleinstem Raum. Seit 1204 lag Jersey im Spannungsfeld zwischen der englischen Krone und Frankreich. Noch 1940–45 litt es unter der deutschen Besatzung, Bunker mahnen als stille Zeugen zum Frieden. Dennoch lebt Jersey Heiterkeit. Die Wetterstatistik bestätigt die meisten Sonnenstunden innerhalb der Britischen Inseln und fast frostfreie Wintermonate. Das Wetter ist also selten zu schlecht für einen erfrischenden Strandspaziergang an der St Ouen’s Bay, und dazu gehört für Trudie ein Brunch im Le Braye Beach Cafe. Regelmäßig lockt sie samstags der Markt in St Aubin. Kurioser Trödel und Produkte der Marktgärtner und Bäcker füllen die Stände in und vor dem Bürgermeisteramt, nur einen Steinwurf entfernt vom pittoresken Hafen. Nicht zu vergessen dort die Harbour Gallery, ein altes Lagerhaus voller Kunst und geschmackvoller kunsthandwerklicher Souvenirs. Ein paar Schritte weiter einladende Lokale und der Strand. Aber, so Trudie, achten Sie auf die Gezeiten. Ihr Schauspiel fasziniert die Geografin jeden Tag aufs Neue, beim Blick aus ihrem Küchenfenster, an der Mole bei La Rocque oder am Strand bei Green Island … Wo Sie Trudie häufig finden: im Watt bei La Rocque als Guide für Jersey Walk Adventures, S. 112

WALKS & TOURS

MEET THE GUIDE Just nine miles by five with a range of varied terrain, it’s easy to explore Jersey on foot. From coastlines carpeted with gorse and wildflowers, to peaceful wooded valleys, quiet tree-lined lanes and rugged beach trails, a walking holiday in Jersey opens up the Islands beauty as well as a rich history. We met up with a local walking guide Trudie Hairon-Trox, who uses her Island-wide knowledge and practical guiding skills to showcase the very best of the Islands history and nature to visitors and locals alike.

10 2 What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


Having worked as a travel writer and editor for over 20 years, traveling the world, studying and learning languages, sharing cultures and history has become somewhat of a hobby for me. When I visited Jersey over 10 years ago for work, I not only fell in love with the island but also my tour guide Derek on a walk to Seymour Tower! After we married, I enrolled in the Bronze Badge training course set up by Jersey Tourism which trains guides on local heritage and culture, historical knowledge, guiding techniques and indigenous nature. Derek and I can now host the very same tour to Seymour Tower together as guides. If you could take guests to just one walking area in Jersey it would be... L’Etacq and Plémont on the North Western coast. Everything on the rugged cliff line is beautiful with sweeping views over the nestled bays and ocean beyond.

used on local fields today as a fertilizer. The use of it on pasture fields for cows makes amazing protein rich milk. When you aren’t guiding others around the island, where do you like to take yourself?

WALKS & TOURS

As a Bronze Badge Guide, you take on great responsibility to preserve and share Jerseys rich history. What does it take to attain such an honour?

Along with my husband Derek who is also a Jersey guide, we enjoy the fascinating stretch of beach in front of our home at Pontac. It is so special to us both, Derek grew up here and it was also the place which we first met. What is one thing that you think everyone who visits Jersey should experience? Gorey Castle! The beach walk from the golf course across to the castle is magnificent, you can experience the beautiful harbour where the castle stands tall and then appreciate the southern expanse upon your assent to the castle. When you’ve reached the top, the views stretch out to Carteret in France which used to be accessible by foot via a huge peninsular before the last ice age! Best relic from one of your tours?

Top Jersey facts that not even our islanders might know? Plémont Bay naturally harvests an abundant amount of amazing edible seaweeds. You can forage for laver seaweed, used traditionally in Wales to make high protein breads, Nori seaweed used for sushi rolls and bright red Carrageen seaweed which makes an amazing jelly. The seaweed from bays all over Jersey are so nutritious, it is still

A mammoth tooth was found in the clay deposits on a guided walk at La Rocque which used to be a huge open grassland where they used to roam! Best folklore? The Bull of St Clement - a big roar out to sea could be heard by the fisherman who were too scared to inspect the rocks where the terrifying noise came from.

We all know it’s essential to start your day with a hearty breakfast to fuel yourself ahead of a busy day sightseeing. First stop out west will be a toss up between EL Tico and Le Braye, both are on the Five Mile Road, allowing for sweeping vistas of St Ouen’s bay and top notch food to boot. Your choice could easily be made on the flip of a coin, or determined by who has a table available. They both serve breakfast until 11.30am and have a good mix of healthy and hearty options. Moving around the island why not stop off at The Prince of Wales in Grève de Lecq, here you’ll find friendly staff and a fry up that has the Breakfast Bean (a local with a devout following on facebook) waxing lyrical, they serve until 11am seven days a week. Heading out east stop off at The Hungry Man in Rozel bay, a colourfully adorned beach hut for those with a bacon craving. There are plenty of seats al fresco to enjoy your butty but be sure to leave space to try their hot chocolate too, it’s off the scale. East again, The Kitchen, is set in Gorey village. This very cool café promises great food and a friendly greeting, oh and epic cakes if you’ve got room. If you’re in town then head to Nude Food for healthy options that include protein pancakes and poached eggs on sourdough or sweet potato slices until 11am six days a week. What’s On.

If you’re looking for something a little different head to Kismet Cabana down at Ouaisne bay for a quick bite; a colourful al fresco surf-style vibe with loads of parking. Fancy lingering over lunch? Try the Oyster Box, set on the edge of St Brelade’s Bay - enjoy the views and great seafood options. If you’re staying out west, pop in to see Sophie at La Belle Gourmande and sit in and enjoy a selection of small plates, or grab food from their deli counter and sit overlooking St Aubin’s harbour. If you’re planning to visit the Jersey War Tunnels in St Lawrence then why not pay a visit to the Mange Tout café for freshly made sandwiches and treats, who also have a variety of sandwich shops based in St Helier. If you’re out east then there are plenty of options to choose from along Gorey Pier. Head to Feast for simple, delicious, modern food and sit back on their al fresco seating to enjoy great views of the harbour. If you want to grab and go then head to The Works at the bottom of Gorey Hill for delectable deli delights to take away and enjoy.

Portelet Bay Café is based at the beach of the same name. This means that you’re going to need to be prepared to climb up and down a fair few steps but it’s worth it, I promise. Here you’ll get great pizza from their wood oven and a fantastic wine list too; it’ll help fuel the walk back. If you’re based in St Helier then you’re spoilt for choice but do try No.10 Restaurant & Bar on Bond Street; small plates influenced by the chef’s travels and an abundance of seasonal ingredients coupled with incredible decor and a basement bar make it a must visit. If you fancy a trip east then Sumas offers amazing food and service. Be sure to ask for a table on their all weather balcony and take advantage of their stellar view of the castle. St Aubin offers an abundance of great restaurants along the Bulwarks (harbourside). The Salty Dog is a firm favourite with locals and visitors thanks to their fresh take on fusion food coupled with classic dishes, they have plenty of indoor and al fresco seating or at the end of the harbour there is The Old Courthouse has dining options in their bar or restaurant. If you’re after fine dining then we are lucky to have a great many Michelin starred restaurants, Ocean at the Atlantic Hotel is perhaps the most formal of all of them and perfect for that special occasion.

The Jersey cow in its current pure-bred form has been a feature of the island’s landscape for more than 200 years. She is renowned worldwide and revered for her beauty, purity and rich, high quality milk. All Jersey cattle on the island are registered in the Jersey Herd Book, which was established in 1866 to guarantee the pedigree of the breed. Today, there are around 4,000 head of Jersey cattle in the Island, of which 3,000 are ‘in milk’, calving all year round to ensure regular supply of milk to the Jersey Dairy, which has diversified into ice cream, cheese, yoghurt and butter.

With its huge tidal range and some of the cleanest seawater in Europe, Jersey is the perfect place to farm high quality oysters. The island’s fast-changing and nutrient-rich waters provide an abundance of food which allows filter-feeding oysters to grow quickly and obtain a clean, fresh flavour. As they have been for centuries, Jersey Oysters are farmed in the Royal Bay of Grouville in the south-east of the island, which is the largest area What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


J ER S EY LOBSTERS

Jersey’s coast and seabed is mostly rock, creating many hiding places for lobster to grow and feed in safety. Clear, shallow waters coupled with strong sunshine and a large tidal range also combine to provide an ideal marine environment. But the seas around Jersey are not only rich in seafood, they are also fished responsibly. Since 2011, lobsters caught in local waters and marketed locally and throughout Europe have carried the prestigious logo of the Marine Stewardship Council, giving consumers the guarantee that the lobsters come from sustainable and well-managed fishing grounds. Gaining accreditation was a collaborative effort between fishermen and government in Jersey and their counterparts in Normandy and distinguishes the Jersey and Normandy lobster fishery as the only one in Europe to reach the MSC standard.

For many, the first Jersey Royal marks the arrival of spring so it is no surprise that the island’s iconic tuber is one of the most longed-for seasonal foods and our principal agricultural export. Besides being unique to Jersey, the Jersey Royal enjoys EU ‘Protection of Designation of Origin’ status in the same way that champagne can only be produced in the French region bearing its name. In the other words, Jersey Royals can only come from Jersey. The variety has been grown on the island since around 1880: the story goes that a local farmer, Hugh de la Haye, developed the small kidney-shaped potato from two giant potatoes that were given to him as curiosities by a St Helier wholesaler. Today, the Jersey Royal accounts for over 70 per cent of all produce grown in the island yet despite being farmed on a large scale, many traditional methods are still used, such as using seaweed as natural fertilizer and hand-lifting the earliest potatoes from steep fields known as côtils.

But the success of the industry is built around sustainability as much as it is quality. The largest producer in the island, the Jersey Oyster Company, has gained accreditation under the Aquaculture Stewardship Council certification scheme, thus becoming the first oyster farm in the world to achieve this global benchmark of responsible cultivation.

The GST Refund Scheme

THE PROCESS

Want to save even more on your jewellery and watch purchases while you’re in Jersey? Jeff Chinn from Hettich Jewellers explains how the GST Visitor Refund Scheme could benefit your visit, with a refund of Jersey’s 5% Goods and Services Tax in addition to Jersey’s VAT-free prices.

YOU MUST GIVE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO THE RETAILER:

If you want to take advantage of the GST refund scheme, which is available to visitors leaving the island by scheduled flights or ferries, and spending a total of £300 or more, then ensure you are buying from a participating retailer.

HOW TO CLAIM A REFUND Once you are back in your country of residence, and within two months of your departure date from Jersey, you should return the retailer's copy of the stamped form to the retailer.

It's not compulsory for retailers to opt in, so ask before you buy. Once purchasing from a participating retailer, the process is simple. Fill out a simple form in store, have it stamped at the airport or ferry port when you leave, and send the form back to the retailer for a refund, less a small administration fee. To find out if you are eligible, visit us at Hettich or look on the Jersey gov.je website

> Your passport or a form of identification > Details of your arrival and departure flights and dates your name and address

After receiving your form, the retailer must process your refund within three months of your departure date. The retailer may charge an administration fee to process your form, but they should tell you this when you buy your goods.

OFF ISLAND OTHER ROCKS TO DISCOVER

If you have enough time, be sure to take a RIB to one of our neighbouring islands for a day trip. SARK is a magical island, referred

to by some as the crown jewel of the Channel Islands. On arriving in Sark you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Cars are prohibited so rent a bike or jump on a horse and cart to explore the island. It is three miles in length and 1½ mile in breadth; the shape of Sark is peculiar as it consists of two parts connected by a narrow neck; the north part is the largest, and two miles in length, the southern (or Little Sark) is less than one mile in length, and narrow; the connecting isthmus is called the Coupée. The social highlights for Jersey folk are the annual Sheep Racing and the Folk Festival.

THE MINQUIERS, known to most

15 6

islanders as the ‘Minkies’, are a group of islands and rocks situated nine miles south, also forming part of the Bailiwick of Jersey. They are administratively part of the parish of Grouville. The islands have no permanent inhabitants, though fishermen, vraic collectors, yachtsmen and even sometimes canoeists make summer landfall.

THE ÉCRÉHOUS are a groups of islands and rocks situated six miles north-east of Jersey (eight miles from France). They form part of the Bailiwick of Jersey and are administratively part of the parish of Saint Martin. The largest is Maitre Ile, 300 metres long and 150 wide. Only two others remain above water at high tide, Marmoutier, which is considerably smaller, and Blanche Ile, smaller still. There are now no permanent residents on the islands and there is no fresh water there. There are a small number of fishermen's huts, some used as holiday residences. Take a RIB over and feel a million miles from mankind for the day. CHAUSEY is a remote French outpost, perfect for a daytrip, steak frites and spot of sunbathing before you jump off the pier and make your way back to Jersey.
