Arriving on one of the regular Jersey flights into Jersey airport from the UK, Germany, Spain, France, Poland or Austria, your first glimpse of the island is the start of an amazing adventure for visitors arriving for one of the many Jersey holidays and Jersey short breaks: two of the mainstays of this little island state’s economy.
Visitors arriving at Jersey airport on Jersey short breaks or longer term Jersey holidays have a wealth of art galleries, museums and visitor attractions which include the Jersey War tunnels, the Gardens of Samares Manor and a steam and motor museum as well as sailing, kayaking, walking, hiking and cycling activities for the more adventurous.
St Helier, the capital and main arrival point for visitors by sea is a cosmopolitan town with many modern boutique hotels, family run inns and guest houses as well as some of the more internationally recognized hotel chains, and is an ideal starting point to explore this ancient island.
Jersey restaurants are an eclectic mix of traditional English pubs and restaurants, combined with continental style bistros and restaurants. Indeed, with the mild climate, Jersey, like its close big cousin France, has a long history of al fresco dining.
Jersey short breaks introduce visitors to the many Jersey restaurants and eateries but St Helier and Jersey is so much more than a gastronomic delight. Within the confines of the town there is a myriad of unique fashion boutiques where you can venture off for a delightful stroll and admire handpicked collections, all of which are trendy, exclusive and exciting.
St Helier is home to a labyrinth of small pedestrianised streets, all of which throw up delights and treats for savvy shopaholics and fashion lovers including unique gift and jewellery shops with gold and silver designs fit for royalty.
Moving out of St Helier, Jersey offers sightseers a wealth of historic and scenic wonders. Jersey short breaks offer up a wonderful opportunity to explore the history and scenic beauty of this island paradise. Mont Orgueil Castle, which has guarded the island against invasion, now welcomes visitors as does Elizabeth Castle, accessible at low tide by causeway or by a regular boat service when the tide is in.
