Absolute Adventures

Home is the East of the Island right in the middle of the country surrounded by fields yet with a view across to France. There is so much to be found on this side of the Island; I take my Children and Grandchildren to St Catherine’s woods and walk through the trees and streams to Anne Port, a wonderful beach to go at high tide to jump rocks and explore the pools. Afterwards, we refuel at Driftwood cafe at Archirondel Beach- you’ll always find a real sense of community at this little cafe that leads straight onto the beach. On those rainy days that a British Summer may well witness we head for a family feast at Ransoms Garden Centre, they have a wonderful selection for vegans and vegetarians. When the sun is shining we love to pack a picnic and head across to Elizabeth Castle to spend the day there and come back on the puddle duck aqueduct or if it’s especially warm, my son will go coasteering with Absolute Adventures at St Brelade’s Bay. We went on a sunset kayaking tour with them and I loved it so much, I now have a kayak to go out on my own! Living in Jersey can be a real adventure and it’s a wonderful place to build memories, there is truly always something to do here especially in the wonderful nature that surrounds us.

Nature feeds my soul, so during the summer season Jersey is simply heaven on earth for me. We live on an Island where the sea is never more than ten minutes away so watching the sun rise over the ocean can be the way you start every day. It’s a time I love as I can connect with the outdoors and find perspective before my day job as a park ranger, looking after the animals at aMaizin! Adventure Park.

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

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 (They look like the image below and to the right). 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.

Parking is only free on Sundays unless otherwise stated, make sure you check out the signs before you leave the car. Paycards (shown left) are available in different denominations, instructions for their use are printed on their rear. 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.

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.

24 What’s On. The official Visitor Guide 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.

BE A LOCAL

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.

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! 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. 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. 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 if you stray too far from the shore there could be a risk of tides cutting you off and leaving you stranded. Pay close attention to the signs and know the dangers. Safe Swimming The RNLI have lifeguards stationed at popular bays who provide cover between the red and yelow flags.

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.

Would you by any chance like to go for a dance in France? 28 What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey

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. Here are a few commonly mispronounced place names and how to say them so that nobody stares at you in complete and utter bewilderment. Good luck!

my perfect weekend

CAROLINE STRACHEN Event Organaiser

Caroline Strachan, event organiser extraordinaire for ‘Sure Legends in the Park’ and ‘St Ouen’s Manor Fete’ is also the owner of the Sure Mobile ‘Big Gig in the Park’ bringing light, life and live music to Howard Davis Park this July. When she’s not busy bringing big acts to Jersey’s stages, you’ll find her driving back from track days in France and hunting down terrific local restaurants hidden away from the main tourist tracks in Portugal on a mission to find the best suckling pig around! The lady that was involved in the original Million Pound Lottery tells us all how she spends her most perfect weekend in Jersey.

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


I love to start the day early with kippers and a mug of Earl Grey tea in the garden. I live in St. Ouen, the West of the Island where the mornings are peaceful and warm during the summer season. You can often hear bird song as light lifts in the early mornings. Once were all well fed we love to take a family walk out to Les Landes Racecourse and Grosnez Castle on the headland with my dog Ellie, a very special small black Labrador. The Wetlands in St. Ouen are a close second with its wonderful wildlife and incredible scenery that changes all the year around. Perfect Afternoons are spent… There are so many wonderful places to walk in Jersey so if I’m feeling well energised, I may continue into the afternoon with a walk around the Dolman overlooking St. Ouen Bay. It’s a good way to work up an appetite before heading of down to Faulkner Fisheries to find something delicious for the BBQ. On the way home we would drop by and feed our friends’ chickens, and pick up some of his eggs, his hens lay the most amazing orange-yolked eggs which we are able to sell for him outside our house in the honesty box. It’s somewhat of a dying tradition across other parts of the UK but in Jersey, you will often see fruit and vegetable stands at the side of the road where you can pick up home grown fresh produce and leave your money in a little “honesty” tin. And lunchtime… If we aren’t BBQing at home, one of my favourite places to eat lunch is Mark Jordan at the Beach without a doubt. Sitting on the terrace in the blazing sun listening to the sea and watching the world go by. Amazing food, incredible service, the team are all really delightful and extremely knowledgeable about the food and wines they serve and their attention to detail is exceptional,  best of all they love my dog.  She even has a water bowl with her name on! You must try their crab & sweetcorn risotto,  the  M.J. Signature Hamburger with foie gras and to end a perfect meal, their baked salted chocolate tart. To absolutely die for!!   If the night is young….

As a bonus, it’s also on a bus route, so if the night is still young we may head into St Helier and have cocktails at the Blind Pig. We love it here as it’s close by to the Merchant House Brasserie which is a great dinner spot to be finished off with a walk around Elizabeth Marina to have a look at the boats and the beautifully lit Elizabeth Castle.

So, the Weekend starts with….


FIRST PERSON

my perfect weekend

My perfect Sunday... Sundays are my partner’s only day off, so, lazy morning with a cooked breakfast and a spot of gardening and a dog walk is how we make a start. We love to have friends round and cook suckling pig in our outdoor pizza oven, or cook espetadas on bay leaf skewers in the old wheelbarrow that we have  turned  into a BBQ,  drink red wine and chat the day away. A late night walk to St.Ouen’s church, another beautifully lit building and as there is little light down those side roads the stars are usually spectacular. St Ouen’s Bay is our favourite beach as it is one of the world’s most beautiful beaches especially at sunset. How lucky are we to live somewhere so incredible beautiful! The sands are always changing, it was quite extraordinary to see the forest that was uncovered by the strong currents and exposed on a part of the beach at certain times during the year. I think that Jersey is such a special place to bring up children with all the outdoor facilities available. We went to Creepy Valley the other day as they are going to help with the St. Ouen Manor fete on the 29th July. It was brilliant fun! What an incredible place for both adults and children to take a load of chums down there, as there is so much going on throughout the year, in particular the summer festival. We love to spend out Sundays at home with a roast with the family. It has to be really rare roast ribs of beef and homemade horseradish  I get the “cooks perks” so get the bones to chew! Delicious. I pick up all th produce we use as local as possible, we have wonderful fresh local produce and great people producing it. Just look at our St. Helier Local Market , let alone the abundance of incredible restaurants in a 45 sq mile Island.

If every weekend was a festival... But of course my most perfect weekend would be at the Sure Big Gig Weekend of course! Such a fun and friendly atmosphere, loads of things to do in the Howard Davis Park and of course amazing live music from super stars from the 80’s, in the past we have had Tom Jones, Human League & Spandau Ballet. We have Holly Johnson (Frankie goes to Hollywood) appearing this year and for the second family night in the past as headliners we have had JLS, The Wanted and Jesse Glynne. This year, Olly Murs will be appearing.  Every year it becomes more of a challenge to put on but it’s worth it when you see the whole team coming together to pull off such a wonderful event and terrific party atmosphere in Howard Davis Park. 32

DON’T MISS...

STREET LIFE In Jersey, a whole crop of new food trucks have sprung up and the best way to get a taste of the experience is to, well, taste their food. ‘Street Food Thursdays’ are a St. Helier initiative encouraging a wide variety of food trucks into the centre of town every week, creating an exciting and diverse foodscape to discover.

34

You can’t miss the vibrant Pink Panda Van, a festival favourite and food truck veteran serving up Vietnamese street food, but dabbling in a bit of Korean and Malaysian cuisine. Island renowned for their light and fluffy Bao Buns stuffed with crunchy Korean chicken and caramelised Pork, they also always have a fresh special curry with an oriental twist hot and ready to devour. Everything is home made with love and always served with a smile from this character and fun filled funky food truck. You might just hear the Latino tunes from Domingos Food Truck

before you smell their mouth watering Mexican, Spanish and Italian cuisine. Serving up their traditional Piadina 12 inch sandwich crammed with traditional Italian charcuterie, chicken burritos complete with homemade salsa, vegetarian quesadillas and king prawn tacos finished with pico de gallo, their menu is almost as zesty as flamboyant owner and chef Dom! You’ll be able to catch them sporting a sombrero and shaking their maracas at local food festivals and events Island wide across the summer.

What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


El Fuego brings an authentic taste of South American to the streets of St Helier. The idea originating from owner Angela’s family, some of which have emigrated to South America and coming back to teach her the tricks of the taste. The pineapple infused sticky pulled pork is a top seller along with the El Capo, a vegetarian dish with black beans, smashed avocado, homemade goats cheese and plantain. All of their food is gluten free, meats are free range, locally sourced where possible and always made from scratch.

from 2 Michelin star kitchens to an award winning beach cafe, this newest venture is all about having fun for the owners. Serving up everything from fish finger sarnies to daily changing Rueben toasted sandwiches and homemade cakes they are most definitely succeeding on their mission! To finish off lunch with a sweet street treat head to the beautifully presented Jersey Cupcakes pop up coffee and cake stand for a delight for the eyes and most certainly the taste buds. The Genuine Jersey vendors take baking to the next level with exquisite hand made and designed cupcakes, with inventive flavours and toppings all served up with some of the best coffee in the street. You’ll want to get there quickly, they made be chilled but they sell out like hot cakes!

Street Food Thursdays Every Thursday 12pm-7pm Charing Cross, Brook Street, Don Street, Halkett Street, St Helier. Share your time in Jersey with #theislandbreak

As well as being a Street Food favourite, The Chugging Pig is parked up all week behind St Helier Parish Church Monday-Friday. Their aim is to bring great tasting, quality British street food to the streets of Jersey using local produce and culinary expertise. With over 20 years of cooking in everything

DON’T MISS...

For those on a health kick, look no further than Wild Health. Their concept is to stick to fresh, natural, real foods, where everything they serve is naturally gluten-free with raw and vegan options too including foraged wild leaves and flowers in their food! Menu favourites are delicious stone-age nut bread with sundried tomatoes, avocado, hummus, rocket and wild garlic flowers, and for dessert raw millionaires shortbread. They will be serving up the feel good stuff at Fete de St Helier, St Ouens manor Fete, Groove de Lecq and The Spice festival this summer.

Beachlife St Ouen’s Bay in the shadow of a Martello Tower

No matter how you spend your time on Jersey you’ll no doubt want to feel the sand beneath your toes and breathe in the fresh sea air as you explore our beaches and coves. Each has its own unique personality something Verity Thomas, local stand up paddleboard racer and the first woman to SUP around Jersey solo has experienced en route to her titles. Here are her top six picks of Jersey’s best beaches: St Ouens Bay- (The spot known as “Secrets)”

This is where one of the oldest surfing clubs in Europe has its home and whilst SUP surfing is frowned upon by some of the ‘local’ surfers at this spot, I love SUP surfing here with my friends. This magnificent beach is a natural playground for surfers, adrenaline seekers and beach walkers alike but swimmers should take care, there are strong currents so stick to the flagged zones. The beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the season. Route 22

St Brelades Bay

Voted as number three in the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice awards, this visitor’s favourite is also the best beach for learning to SUP. This is where I first took my son Jacques out with me on my board and where he went out on his own board for the first time. It’s my favourite training ground, in all weather conditions, all year round. In the summer it is one of the most beautiful bays in Jersey as it is south facing with soft sand, safe swimming, beach activities and seaside cafes. Route 12 or 14

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


SEE

Eating with a beach view at St Brelade’s

Belcroute Bay

This is a small bay, quite hidden away along from St Aubin. It is a great area for paddling as when the tide is high, you don’t have to walk far to get to the water. The downside to Belcroute is that it is stones so there is no sand for children to play, but there are rock pools to look in. This bay for me, is a great starting point for “down winding” which is a discipline of SUP where you go from point to point with the wind, catching swell bumps along the way. This is my favourite SUP discipline as it is a real adrenaline rush! It needs to be said however that if you are planning on down-winding you should make sure you are competent enough for the conditions and have the correct equipment. Route 12a

Plemont Bay

Havre Des Pas

The closest beach to the main town has always had a small part of my heart as it was the hangout spot for my family and friends when I was a child. There is an art deco pool which fills at the high tide complete with a bridge linking it to the main street. Just a short paddle Eastward along the coast, you can sometimes get some waves off the Dicq beach (and get a well deserved Thai at the ‘Dicq Shaq’ afterwards!) Route 1

Les Minquiers sandbank

The Minquiers (pronounced Minkies) is a group of islands and rocks about 15km south of Jersey so you’ll need to take a boat trip to reach them. Although technically not a beach, a huge sand bank is exposed at low tide like its own little peaceful island. I have once SUP surfed out there and funnily enough, I had the waves all to myself!! Its an amazing place to spend the whole day but go well prepared, it’s just you and the big blue out there. Jersey Seafaris operate tours to the Minquiers.

Yes, it might be a long walk down there but once you’re down there and out on the water, there is always a chance you could see Dolphins! This pristine sandy cove is a stunning natural playground of rock pools, sea caves, a waterfall and an excellent beach cafe perched on top of the cliff. There is safe swimming when the sea is calm, surfing when it is wilder, and becomes completely covered at high tide. There are RNLI lifeguards operating during the summer months. Route 8

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

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

Bonne Nuit

N

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)

S

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

Ouaisne Bay

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.

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

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).

NE

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

A quiet and rarely crowded east-facing stretch of sand that catches the morning and midday sun. Between Gorey and St Catherine, it is overlooked at its southern end by a rock face known as Le Saut Geoffroi (Jeffrey’s Leap) which legend has it was the scene of ancient executions, with those suspected of witchcraft pushed over the cliff face to die on the rocks below. Bus route 2 to St Catherine (summer only)

Share your time in Jersey with #theislandbreak

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

N

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)

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. 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! 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.

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. 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. 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.

MEET THE GUIDE WALKS & TOURS

Interview: Abigail Ali | Photography: Danny Evans

Walking and exploring Jersey opens up the Islands beauty as well as rich history. We met up with a local guide Marc Yates, who uses his Island-wide knowledge and practical guiding skills to showcase the very best of the Islands military and ancient history to visitors and locals alike.

MARC YATES

TOUR GUIDE AT HISTORY ALIVE! AND JERSEY MILITARY TOURS

Special Talent: History Expert

1 18

As a local tour guide, you take on great responsibility to preserve and share Jersey’s rich history. What does it take to attain such an honour? My Grandfather Josué (Joe) Dorey was the Guardien of Gorey Castle and he was employed by the states from 1937 to guide visitors around. My grandparents lived there with my

mother when she was a child until evicted by the Germans but once the Island was liberated, went back to live there until 1961. Both of my Grandfathers and my great-grandfather were War decorated soldiers, so military history and tour guiding truly runs through my veins. With my love for history and a surfeit of soldiers in

Guernsey and Alderney on a good day. The heather blossoms during Spring and Summer making for an enchanting, fairytale like surrounding of the Castle. Best relic from one of your tours? I myself found a Neolithic stone axe when I was out walking and exploring which was showcased in Jersey Museum for some time. I now show and share it with people who come onto my History Alive! Tours which doesn’t just focus on the military aspect of Jersey’s history. Jersey is rife with folklore, favourite story? I actually know a wonderful story about my Grandfather Joe. On May 8th, 1945 the war in Europe ended, at last. All those who still owned illegal radio sets in Jersey and knew about the German surrender, remained in anticipation of the removal of the occupying Germans on the Island by British troops. Before this happened however, Joe Dorey had received word of this news and marched to Mont Orgueil Castle past the German soldiers, removed the Nazi flags and raised one of first British flags the Island had seen since the occupation marking their liberation. A day later, on May 9th, the iconic flag was raised at the Pomme D’or Hotel and the square became ‘The Liberation Square’. What makes doing a guided tour in Jersey so much more enriching than going it alone? The information I have was passed down personally through local families and first hand experiences unknown by any book or other person. On my tours I use original props, and historic images. It is so important to continue sharing the significance of the last 800 years of military history as it has resulted in most of the language, culture, society and heritage we have on our Island today.

WALKS & TOURS

my bloodline, I joined the International Guild of Battlefield Guides and also became an Island host. Unlike other badge tour guides, my accreditation is much more specific as my tours focus mainly on the military history of Jersey which in fact, makes up for most of its past. I take great pride in preserving and sharing the history of Jersey. If you could take guests to just one area in Jersey it would be...? It would be around any of the many Dolmens around Jersey as there is so much beauty and history in one place. They are most commonly built on higher ground and coastal areas, meaning there is always a wonderful unspoilt view to go with the history of the huge stones themselves.  Top Jersey Facts that not even our islanders might know? Most of the main roads in Jersey are military roads. As the green country lanes were too narrow, new roads were built 200 years ago to allow for soldiers and artillery to quickly access coastal regions where French invaders may have landed. When you aren’t guiding others around the island, where do you like to take yourself? I love to view the Island from a different perspective so I head out to sea on my boat.  I especially love the rugged North Coast with its cliffs, caves and gullies many of which are only accessible from the ocean. I would definitely recommend using Jersey Seafaris or one of the other companies to go on a tour, they can take you around the coast, to the other Channel Islands and across to The Minquiers.  What is one thing that you think everyone who visits Jersey should experience? I definitely think that people should experience Gronez Castle for its views to France, Sark, Herm, Jethou,

Food shack, baby, food shack. Words | Abigail Ali

Jersey is world renowned for its Michelin star restaurants, extensive selection of local, seasonal produce and alfresco dining with views as superior as the food. For such, see our top 10. But for those seeking food straight from local chefs who are eager to serve up their favourite flavours - in most cases cooked for you, right in front of you and right away, we’ve an Island littered with quirky eateries. Forget your traditional seaside food trailer as these vendors have most certainly innovated the way seaside fast food is done. From renovated vans and trailers to converted bunkers and shacks nestled in quiet corners and tranquil bays, there’s always a taste of the unusual to be found, you just need to know where to look...

Although there’s less beach side dining to choose from on the North side, Bonne Nuit Beach Cafe located in a quaint Fisherman’s Bay, makes up for the lack of choice with serious flavour. Serving up quality interpretations of classic Thai dishes using only the freshest of locally sourced ingredients, they have revived the sleepy harbour. The relaxed style cafe offers the choice to dine and observe the beautiful scenery of the bay and the north coast hedge lands or take away and enjoy on the beach or your own home.

A trip out East wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Hungry Man at the beautiful quaint Rozel Bay- An institution since 1947. Offering a wide range of food from gourmet burgers to crab sandwiches and delicious homemade cakes, al fresco. The Driftwood Cafe at Archirondel Beach is a fresh seafood lovers must visit as this area of the Island is renowned for its rich waters and beautiful views. For a proper beach side re-fuel, Rhonas food trailer at Gorey Beach has every dish a day at the seaside isn’t complete without.

Tucked away with views across Ouaisne Bay, The Kismet Cabana is a culinary celebration of beach culture and street food cuisine from around the world. Inspired by global flavours - they work with local suppliers to create a delicious menu which caters to different tastes, including a creative vegetarian and vegan. The Hideout at La Pulente is a beach dwellers favourite, sitting right on the edge of some of the best surfing spots in Jersey. You’ll get proper belly filling rolls, wraps and baps and a surprisingly great cup of coffee after a hard days sunning. Ever eaten lunch in a converted German bunker? Well add the family run Faulkner Fisheries to your food tour for a BBQ as exquisite as the views across St Ouen’s Bay. This is where all the locals in the know head for locally sourced fresh fish!

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.

You could easily do nothing more than eat your way around the island, whilst of course taking in the epic views and attractions. 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.

LIBERATION ALE GIFT PACK The ultimate present for any beer lover. A 500ml bottle of the award winning local Liberation Ale contained in a deluxe cardboard tube with a genuine Liberation Ale pint glass. £5.99, Victor Hugo, Longueville.

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.

J ER S EY ROYA LS

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.

of cultivated oysters in the British Isles. Over the two years it takes to cultivate an oyster, its development is closely monitored to ensure its purity, cleanliness and succulent taste. 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.

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

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.

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.
