There really is so much that makes Jersey unique, it’s somewhat of a microcosm of life crammed into an island of 45 square miles with so much to do, see and experience. I live on the east of the island with my family so spend autumn days relaxing days together on the farm, walking the dogs in St Catherine’s Woods or taking our small fishing boat out to catch mackerel for the BBQ. Jersey Zoo can be found out this way too where I have been employed for almost 20 years, 10 of which I have been manager of the gorilla and orangutang facilities. The Zoo is a legacy to Gerald Durrell and our ixsland where you’ll find over 130 different species of animal! A trip to Jersey wouldn’t be complete without trying out surfing, it is a very spiritual activity that brings an inner calm. When you surf a wave your sole focus is on riding that wave and becoming part of that energy flow; immersed in nature, It really is a form of meditation, especially in some of our picturesque bays with views of castles, dunes and sweeping beaches. Equally, it’s a great way to work up an appetite for a meal at my favourite pizza place, Pizza Express. I hope you enjoy your stay and I hope to see you at the Gorilla enclosure at Jersey Zoo during our “Meet the animals” talks.

especially for the cider fair!

Welcome to the wonderful island of Jersey, a place I have been able to call home since I was 10 years old. Although the sun has started to back off, there is still so much beauty and energy here throughout autumn; the blackberries are in bloom, there’s great fishing and increasing swell as the Atlantic Ocean awakens indicating the much anticipated winter surf is just around the corner. The changing of the scenery with the intense colours of our renowned sunsets are so invigorating, so much so that 80% of people were unable to tell Jersey’s sunsets apart from Barbados in a recent poll! Plemont beach is a wonderful place to see the skies aglow with our other Channel Islands sitting on the back drop.

WILKOMMEN

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

GET SET

GET SET! > 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.

HOLD THE LINE!

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.

GET SET

Climate

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

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.

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. 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.

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


(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 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? 30 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

ELEANOR LISTER Climber

When she’s not clinging to a rock face or hiking to new horizons, you’ll find one of our Jersey Ambassadors, Eleanor Lister, finding new ways to explore our 9 by 5 miles in her down time. Here she shares her perfect weekend in Jersey with top tips even for those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground.

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


Places to check out

What does the weekend start with? For me, a perfect weekend in Jersey has to start with a delicious Saturday morning brunch, preferably somewhere on a beach like Le Braye Cafe on St Ouens beach. There is such a great buzz in this area on a weekend morning with dog walkers, families and surfers alike congregating on our longest stretch of beach. 

Le Braye Cafe Page 132

For an afternoons activity? Of course, I love to follow a great meal by an afternoon rock climbing up at Grosnez. As a climber, you get to experience the views, the nature and the natural landscape through a completely different perspective. For those wanting a taste of it themselves, get in touch with the Jersey Rock Climbing Club for some fantastic routes. But if it’s a bit windy out there, embrace it, try out blowcarting along St Ouens - lots of fun for everyone in the family. 

Grosnez Page 89

And as the sun sets? If the conditions are right (which one hopes as the autumn swell rolls in!) I love to take the scenic drive across the 5 mile road, for a late surf at St Ouens with the sun setting behind us infront of The Watersplash. To don your wetsuit with your surfboard under one arm and hitting the waves is exhilarating! Even if you’re not a particularly good surfer (like me!) there’s plenty of whitewash and baby swells to enjoy, and lots of places to rent equipment such as Splash Surf Centre at St Ouens Bay. And if there’s no surf, maybe we would get out waterskiiing in the east of the island. It’s super fun, and a fantastic way to see the island from offshore, a beautiful view of Gorey harbour and Mont Orgueil, not to mention the chance to see dolphins! 

The Watersplash Page 132

FIRST PERSON

What do you love about living in Jersey? What’s not to love about it? Wonderful beaches, beautiful sunsets, and most importantly (for me) a paradise of rock climbing within a 30 minute drive coast to coast! Everything here is so close which means you can really pack a lot into your weekends.

Blowcarting; Absolute Adventure Page 98

An evening would end perfectly.. Surrounded by friends with a BBQ at Ouaisne beach and a final dip in the sea. You’ll find the Smugglers Inn pub on this bay too, the only free house left in Jersey which is rich in old piracy and trade tales hence the name! They do proper cask ales and have a great pub grub menu.

my perfect weekend

What do Sundays best look like? If you’re an early riser, St Catherine’s Breakwater is a wonderful place to watch the sunrise, with coffee in a flask and a blanket over your shoulders. But if you’re like me by the time Sunday comes, its time to relax! Whether you’re interested in a nice casual walk through St Catherine’s Woods or to take a stroll across Rozel beach, its a great way to invite an appetite for lunch at The Hungry Man. This super casual harbour’s edge food shack serves up great value for money food in the picturesque setting of Rozel Bay in the east.  If its a long weekend, what’s not to miss?  I’m fascinated by history, and if you are too, I highly recommend getting a temporary Heritage card and check out our castles, neolithic history, and bunkers left over from the World War. My favourite fun fact about Jersey is that Sir Walter Raleigh was governor of Jersey from 1600 - 1603! And last, but certainly not least are our wonderful castles on the Island which are a must visit; Mont Orguiel and Elizabeth Castle are the most throughly restored, and absolutely wonderful to visit.

As a man that spends his working days as well as much appreciated down time with his toes between the sand, Chester Macklay of Absolute Adventures seems a pretty good candidate to take on the task of listing Jersey’s Top 10 beaches. Take note surfers, the autumn swell is a brewing! St Brelades Bay

Plémont

Beauport Bay

St Ouens Bay

This is a wonderful place to go stand up paddle boarding, on one side you have the church standing high on the hill and the other is protected luscious headland. You have the pick of hotels and restaurants littered along the seafront.

Why not paddle board beyond St Brelades Bay towards the church to find this hidden gem of a beach. This picture postcard horse shoe bay can only be reached by water or by a long decent down the steps so often offers a bit more seclusion.

Mind the steps on the decent! Its a long way down but the pay off is just as steep - a waterfall running down from the cliffs, caves to explore and waves for experienced surfers makes Plémont Bay an adventurers dream.

Our largest bay with so many different choices of breaks and spots to pitch up for the day that differ from each other along the stretch. Infront of The Watersplash you’ll always find a great atmosphere, a great crowd and hopefully surf!

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


Affectionally named by locals, this spot may be secret by name but not strictly by nature. This stretch of beach at St Ouens Bay is just along from Kemp Tower and when the swell is right, offers an awesome long boarding wave.

Le Braye

You’ll find this spot right in front of Rocco tower with a large car park and slipway access onto the beach. Its a top spot for dog walkers, less experienced surfers and those looking for a beach side bite at the wonderful Le Braye Cafe.

Grève de Lecq

A little nook on the north coast offering some of the best coasteering in Jersey. The cliffs and rocks are wonderful for climbing but make sure you have an experienced instructor with you and the right gear.

Fliquet Beach

SEE

Secrets

A lesser known pebbled beach in the East if the Island perfect for those wanting to see the views across the ocean to France.

Green Island

Named after the grassy rock just off the coastline and easily reached at low tide, Green Island is one of the most popular beaches in Jersey located on the southern-most point of the Island.

Belcroute Bay

This beach loses the sun early afternoon for the day but is very sheltered from any easterly winds with pines surrounding the beach providing shade from the sun. This makes this quiet little bay perfect for beginners to learn stand up paddling. See the fold out map for beach locations

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

SW

84

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

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). Most west-bound bus routes

Beauport

Anne Port

SW

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)

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 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)

CORBIERE LIGHTHOUSE

This spectacularly located headland ruin is thought to date from the 14th century. To the south is Le Pinacle, a 200ft (60m} high rock, which featured as an object of worship and a ceremonial site for thousands of years. 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. It’s just as pretty in the Autumn! 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.

ST CATHERINE’S BREAKWATER

TEN TO TRY

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.

Phil Marett & Kimberley Bichard TOUR GUIDES AT JERSEY WAR TOURS

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


Phil and Kimberley are two passionate military occupation researchers who specialise in private tours of Jersey’s WWII German bunkers. With a passion for saving and sharing the islands history, their tours offer exclusive access to bunkers, batteries and tunnels under their care which are under otherwise, not open to the public  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? Phil- My grandparents did not evacuate and chose to remain here on Jersey during the Occupation and I decided to find out more about what happened during those five years. When I started, there was very few websites offering any information and I thought I would change that. I have been working for over 10 years on an online database to share this research. Two years ago, Kimberley and I started Jersey War Tours, to share what we had discovered, help fund our research and provide funding for sites that we are now responsible for. Kimberley- Phil is the brains here, he has been researching for over 10 years and training me up. I have just under three years of research under my belt now. We like to use all forms of research from talking to locals who were here during the Occupation to spending hours in the US, Russian, British archives.    

If you could take guests to just one walking area in Jersey it would be? Phil-South Hill / Mount Bingham area in St Helier. It has so much WWII history to discover WWII Tunnels, a Railway, Multiple resistance Nests, Allied P.O.W camps and much more. Kimberley- The west coast is definitely my favourite area of the island as it is littered with traces of the Occupation and has amazing views.

WALKS & TOURS

Interview: Abigail Ali | Photography: Danny Evans

Give us a Jersey fact that not even our islanders might know? Phil- Operation Constellation was the code name of one of the missions planned by Vice Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten in 1943 to take back the Channel Islands. ‘Condor’ was the name given to the Jersey part of the operation. After a period of heavy bombing Jersey would be taken back at force. Approved by most of the high command, but no air support was offered due to what was seen to be as an excessive loss of civilian life. The liberation of the Channel Islands would have to wait until after D-day. Kimberley- During the Occupation the Germans ordered all traffic to drive on the ‘wrong’ side of the road. The island was also moved to central European time When you aren’t guiding others around the island, where do you like to take yourself? Phil- The money we raise from tours is invested back in our sites and research, so you will often find me

WALKS & TOURS

researching and maintaining our WWII tunnel complex Ho19. Kimberley- I love spending time in our research sites. We are currently working in a tunnel complex and have recently taken on the lease for a tower, we have a lot of work ahead of us but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. What is one thing that you think everyone who visits Jersey should experience? Phil- A visit to each of the coasts individually, north, east south and west. Although were on a small island the differentiation of our coastlines is dramatic.   Kimberley- Jersey has so much to offer; incredible beaches, amazing restaurants, wonderful people and of course, Jersey ice cream!  Best relic from one of your tours? Phil- It’s from our collection of firearms, we have a Savage Arms Model of 1928 A Thompson Submachine Gun. Built in New York and send to the UK under the LendLease Act (U.S. military aid to foreign nations during World War II). This was the same type of machine gun issued to Number 10 Commando who with the Special Boat Section raided the island on the 25th of December 1943. Kimberley- Hands down my favourite relics are the Luger’s (German semiautomatic pistol) found in a local garden less than a year ago. They have such a great story behind them, which you’ll have to take a tour to discover of course! 

Jersey is rife with folklore, what’s your favourite? Phil- Geoffrey’s Leap- No-one really knows who Geoffrey is, but we know that he committed a crime - and that his punishment was to be thrown off a high rock at Anne Port. Crowds came to watch Geoffrey die, and the executioner hurled him off the rock. But Geoffrey survived, and swam ashore. Some of the crowd argued that he should be allowed to live, and others that he should be thrown off again. Geoffrey settled the argument, by saying that he would jump off the rock himself to show how easy it was. But this time, Geoffrey hit the rocks below, and died. What makes doing a walking tour in Jersey so much more enriching than going it alone? Phil- We offer access to sites never open to the public and you are guided by researchers who have hands on experience with this important era of history. However, if you don’t we are glad you selected our beautiful islands to explore and please feel free to use our website’s map page to help you. Kimberley-There are so many areas of history to explore on the Island you can get lost in yourself just wandering round them. We find that those who join our tour see history come to life through use of maps, pictures, exclusive access and relics.

10 6 What’s On. The official Visitor Guide to Jersey


It’s easy to set out on your own and explore the island on foot. Once you’re on the trail, you can use our green lanes to ramble through farm and field or find hidden bays and secret coves. You’re never far from a public bus or friendly local to point you in the right direction. Rest up over a hearty pint of Liberation Jersey Ale and tuck into delicious Jersey seafood before venturing out once more with a spring in your step. This season, why not head to pretty St Aubin and wander out to Noirmont!

WALKS & TOURS

SELF-GUIDED WALK

St Aubin's to Noirmont After a quick coffee break at Costa, cross the road and start out at St Aubin’s Parish, which sits proudly next to the old harbour of St Aubin. The route takes you along the harbour front and up Ghost Hill. This is a very steep hill which is not for the faint hearted, but definitely worth the effort. Once the road flattens out you will make your way along the headland to Noirmont Point, with arguably some of the best coastal views on the island. And if you get your timing right there may be an ice cream waiting for you at the finish line. A return bus is available from The Old Portelet Inn.

LOBSTER Months that end is R are the best for shellfish so the saying goes making autumn the finest time to sample King of the shellfish, lobster. The currents that orbit Jersey also bring shellfish and crab close to our shores so you can always be sure that the seafood on your plate has been caught locally. You can pick up your own selection at The Fresh Fish Company and may even see the day’s fresh catch come into shore. Or if you’re looking to truly make a meal of it, the seafood BBQ at Faulkner Fisheries, L’Etacq serves up fresh moules, crevettes, lobster and picked crab

complete with homemade garlic butter and on a good day, home baked sourdough served up with sweeping views across St Ouen’s Bay from this old converted German bunker.

Famous for their rich creamy milk, treat yourself to Jersey cream, locallymade cheese and ice-cream while you’re here.

OYSTERS Discover local oysters cultivated in the oyster beds fed by the shallow waters of the bay of Grouville, with Gorey castle as its backdrop. Jersey has the third largest tidal range in the world, which means that Jersey grown oysters benefit directly from the daily natural filtering effect of Jersey’s unique tides and crystal clear waters, and enjoy the high flow of nutrient clean water. Growing in this kind of environment gives our Jersey oysters their unique delicate, fresh and salty flavour. To sample fresh oysters whilst overlooking the waters they came from, Suma’s restaurant in Gorey serves the finest oysters, as you like them.

JERSEY ROYALS In Jersey one of the largest tides in the world nourishes the land with rich marine minerals. It’s why our Jersey Royals have a unique flavour! Although the potato season ended in June, you’ll see the farmers back out in the fields now across the Island, planting for the next season. 121

BLACK BUTTER

Jersey black butter has a strong provenance as it is made using a traditional Jersey recipe, without any artificial additives. The jammy conserve is a perfect breakfast/ snack accompaniment, wonderful as a condiment and also can be used as an ingredient in a range of recipes, for both sweet and savoury dishes. La Mare Vineyards in St Mary offers a full tour of their vineyards, where you can learn the history, sample a taste and pick up a jar or two to take home.

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.

Sark Écréhous

If you have enough time, be sure to take a RIB to one of our neighbouring islands for a day trip or hop across to St Malo on Condor for a day trip en France!. Minquiers

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

St Malo

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. breadth of your Channel Island trip from the UK, an hour on the Condor ferry will see you a world away inside the walled French city of Saint Malo. Its origins date back to the 6th century, when a Breton monk arrived from Wales and gave it its name. Many famous voyages departed the harbor at Saint Malo including Jacques Cartier’s expedition to Canada. Today intra muros (inside the walls) you’ll find rambling streets packed full of characterful and quaint shops and eateries along with a town beach and ramparts that make for an enjoyable afternoon walk. A day trip gives enough time to take in the sites, get some great Moules Frites and a few souvenirs and make it back to Jersey in time for a night out.
