Long summer days bring back memories of an adventurous youth. Growing up on Jersey’s east coast between Le Hocq and La Rocque Harbour offered great explorations in a magic playground. Europe’s largest rocky intertidal area, stretching over 3000 hectares from Havre de Pas to Gorey harbour is since the year 2000 an internationally designated RAMSAR wetland area, any industrial development excluded. To me as a child it was – and still is – an intriguing microcosm, an ever changing coast between the tides where I learnt respect for the forces of nature and its beauty. My parents took me low water fishing towards Icho Tower. But we also explored rockpools and looked for crabs under seaweeds. The first kayak came from my fathers workshop. Being on the water and walking the coast has become a passion. My wife Trudie and I never get bored taking groups to Seymour Tower – though we also love the lush valleys of Jersey’s interior and appreciate the new path for walkers and cyclists through St Peter’s Valley. The gentle pace of a walk or a kayak tour allows you to observe in a different way, feel dwarfed at the bottom of an awesome cliff near Bouley Bay or marvel about a tiny cushion starfish or an irridescent seaweed by Green Island. We move in soundscapes created by nature, waves, wind, birds or sand sweeping over the beach. Jersey can pride itself of unique and exciting cultural places like La Hougue Bie where Neolithic man – 6000 years ago – aligned the passage to a ritual chamber with the rising sun during the equinox. At the same time the island offers a fantastic natural environment, star studded skies, a low horizon, spaces to breathe and lots of wind to blow the cobwebs away. Jersey is to be enjoyed with all your senses.

GET SET! > THINGS TO KNOW WHILST YOU’RE HERE Where are we?

Jersey is 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

HOLD THE LINE!

departures hall. www.jerseyairport.com | 01534 446000

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 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. www.ports.je 01534 446000

All numbers in What’s On are shown with the local 01534 code. Your mobile should call this direct. If you have any problems try +44 instead of the first 0

COUNTRY CODE

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. Roughly 50% of Jersey dwellers on the last census were locally born with 31% from the UK, 7% from Portugal/Madeira, 3%

from Poland, 2% from Ireland and the rest from elsewhere.

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.

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.

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. Why not buy the Discover Jersey Pass? The multi–journey passes give you unlimited travel for the duration indicated on the ticket purchased, so you can really get to know the island better. Call Liberty Bus on 01534 828555 or visit www.libertybus.je for more details.

GETTING ABOUT

Driving

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 also likely to 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!

Cycling

Jersey is a cyclist’s paradise with miles and miles of winding green lanes and dramatic coastal routes. Check out our drives and rides page on page 28 and bike rental firms on page 76.

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 to the right). PayByPhone parking is a cashless parking service that allows you to pay for parking using your mobile phone. It is available in all paying public car parks. Search the Apple or Android app store for ‘PayByPhone’. 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.

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 6,000 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.

(That’s Jèrriais for ‘Welcome to Jersey!’)

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. 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. 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

BE A LOCAL

Seyiz les beinv’nus à Jèrri! 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, digital 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. For more information: www.rnlijersey.org.je

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

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 above 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.

26


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!

ON TWO WHEELS OR FOUR...

A route out West 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.

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)

28

Continue down to the Five Mile Road for three miles of coastal scenery...

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.

...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!

FIRST PERSON

So Matt... the weekend starts with... My perfect weekend would start with a morning surf, somewhere on the five mile road at St Ouen’s Bay. Once out of the water I’d head for breakfast at Big Verns, overlooking the ocean. I like to have a chat about the surf at Little Joe’s Surf Shack too, which is alongside. And lunch... In contrast to the beach, I’d head for a different type of dip, in the pool at the beautiful Longueville Manor, before a lunch around the pool. Perfect afternoons are spent... Whether on the land or in the water, I’d ideally spend an afternoon exploring Jersey’s dramatic north coast. Whether hiking or freediving below Pinnacle Rock around the corner from L’Etacq when the swell drops, it’s beautiful. Saturday night is... Time for work in the summer months! I spend my Saturday evenings at one of Jersey’s many wedding venues, capturing memories of people’s big day. And the morning after... A relaxing breakfast with my girlfriend Mandy Moo, ideally close to home, usually at the Look Out Cafe at First Tower. And then... What makes a perfect Sunday? Always a morning at the beach, following by a long lunch for the afternoon with family and friends at the Old Court House, in the pretty harbour at St Aubin. If you had relatives visiting what wouldn’t you let them miss? If the weather was right I would take them on an adventure to the Minquiers on a RIB trip with Jersey Seafaris, or perhaps a trip down to Plemont Bay. You also can’t beat a barbeque down at St Ouens Bay to catch the sunset. What are your favourite beaches for sunrise/sunset? There is a beautiful sunrise at Le Coupe on the East coast just beyond St Catherine’s Breakwater. For sunset it has to be along the five mile road at St Ouen Bay!

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.

82

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 …


1

M O N T O R G U E I L CAST L E ist ein Muss. In ihren künstlerisch gestalteten Höfen und Räumen wird das Mittelalter lebendig. Und von der Dachterrasse schweift der Blick über Hafen und Bucht von Gorey bis zur normannischen Küste – einfach unvergesslich

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

CORBIÈRE LIGHTHOUSE

2

THE FIVE MILE ROAD

3

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!

4

BEAUPORT BAY

Corbière ‘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. 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 visitors along our west coast bay, it’s one of the island’s nicest beach-side drives.

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...

84


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.

beachlife It’s part of Jersey’s DNA 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...

Anne Port

NE

Bouley Bay

N

A quiet and rarely crowded east-facing stretch of sand that catches the morning and midday sun. 2

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. 4

Archirondel

Green Island

NE

86

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. East-facing, Archirondel loses the sun in the late afternoon. 2

SE

A locals’ favourite, this sheltered south-facing beach is a real sun trap where soft sand, rock climbing and rock pool adventure awaits. 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. 1


BEACH GUIDE

Grève de Lecq

NW

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

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. 4

Beauport

SW

St Brelade’s Bay, then walk along the cliffs

Grouville Bay / Long Beach

SE

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

87

A real suntrap 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. 12 or 14 to


BEACH GUIDE

Ouaisne Bay

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 L’Ouaisne Common towards locals’ favourite, The Smugglers Inn.

Havre des Pas

S

88

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. 1

Rozel Bay

NE

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 3 on, just look out for the Rozel geese!

St Aubin’s Bay

SW

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 cafes along the promenade front, look out for the softest sand around the Gunsite cafe with jet ski hire close by. Most west-bound buses


BEACH GUIDE

Plemont

NW

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 cafe 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. 8

Portelet Bay

SW

SW

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

St Ouen’s Bay

W

A magnificent beach and 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. 22

89

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 Restaurant serves excellent pizza throughout the season, and the pub at the top of the steps, the Old Portelet Inn is a family favourite. 12a

WALKS & TOURS

A WALK IN THE NATIONAL PARK

Sorel headland to Devil’s Hole Views to treasure and nature to savour

Almost seventy per cent of our coastline sits within the Jersey National Park, an official endorsement that guarantees enjoyment along some of the island’s most stunningly diverse land and seascapes.

a challenging coastal hike that’s wickedly wild and wonderfully bracing, then the four mile ‘up and downer’ between Sorel Point and Devil’s Hole is hugely recommended. To begin with, it’s an easy track to follow and, in addition to long views of our own unspoiled northern coastline, favourable visibility allows sneaky views of two of our main sister islands, Sark and Guernsey.

Certainly for the enthusiastic walker, the winding network of north coast cliff paths, tracks and wooded valley’s ensures that time spent in this particular section of the ‘park’ delivers the very best of scenic pleasures. For those looking for

Once heading off along the well defined footpaths from the Sorel headland, expect some extra close and friendly company - a flock of Manx-Loaghtan long-horned sheep and a dozen or more free-flying Redilled choughs.

cascades into the sea. The easy-to-follow cliff path then winds westward up to a grassy headland and eventually to the car park at Devil’s Hole.

The results of their dual ‘residency’ has proved to be one of the island’s most environmentally satisfying achievements and one that certainly proves a prime natural asset to Jersey’s National Park.

An extra bonus here is to follow the footpath leading past ‘the devil’ and down to a viewing platform overlooking an impressively deep cave. It’s a little jaunt of a climb back to the top again but, with the conveniently placed Priory Inn awaiting your pleasure, it’s a most rewarding one.

The twin headlands of Sorel and Devil’s Hole are divided by the extremely attractive and deeply wooded Le Mourier Valley. Well worth a short detour at the base of the footpath is to follow the narrow stream down to the steeply rugged coastline where a narrow waterfall

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


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.

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.

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.

St Malo

If you’re in Jersey for more than a couple of days, you can extend your trip further afield by taking in some other great destinations within a short boat ride. Whether it’s to the walled city of St Malo on the French coast, the tranquility of Sark or the beauty of the remote outlying islands, grab a rib, ferry or charter and head off for the day to add an extra element to your Jersey island break.

OFF ISLAND

ST MAL0 is just an hour away but presents an opportunity to experience life inside a unique French walled city. Just pulling in to port there is quite impressive as you take in the structure of this unique coastal enclave. In recent years, the town has developed and modernised infrastructure which has led to an increase of quality retail and hospitality offerings. Whether you’re looking for boutique shopping or a moules frites served by genuine French waiter, you’ll be satisfied. Check out the amazing La Java bar, filled with dolls and complete with bar stools swinging from the ceiling.

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.

GUERNSEY our sister isle, both similar in characteristic but unique in its own right. The Donkeys to our Crapauds, Guernsey has been described as the Harrods to Jersey’s Selfridges, a slightly older and more established, if a little quieter, location. The capital St Peter Port is a pretty little town with a cobbled high street and a selection of local independant shops. The island’s coastal locations provide great walking or cycling destinations. If you’re hungry for lunch, grab a steak in Red or seafood at the harbourside Boathouse.


OFF ISLAND

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 but you can take a tour of La Seigneurie House and Garden or weekly walks through privately owned gardens all summer long.

SARK EVENT DATES: SUMMER 2018 June 2nd Sark 10 (race) July 6th – 8th Sark Summer Festival (music and workshops) July 20th – 22nd Sheep Racing and Carnival Aug 11th Candles on the Creux harbour illumination Aug 21st – 22nd Odd Socks performing Romeo & Juliet and The Tempest Sept 5th – 12th Opera Sark Sept 14th – 16th Roots Festival (music and workshops) Sept 22nd – 29th Autumn Walking Week

THE MINQUIERS, known to most

144

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.

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.
