Simone from Deben Travel has just returned from a fantastic trip to the beautiful Island of Jersey, the largest and most populated of the group of Channel Islands .She was very impressed as she lets us know the main highlights of her trip with Premier Holidays. This group of Channel Islands also consists of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and some smaller Islands which are not habitable. The total area of the Islands is 198 km square, small but perfect in every way.
Departing from our local airports Southend and Norwich, Jersey is a 50 minute hop on a small but comfortable aircraft and on arrival you cannot believe you so close to such a scenic and interesting destination.
From departing the airport you will see the difference in scenery from the open fields to small winding country lanes all with local farmers digging up their famous Jersey Royal Potatoes and the local Jersey cows making the sought after cream for your afternoon tea’s which are a must.
Further along Jersey and arriving at the coast which is only 3 miles from the airport and consists of long stretches of pristine sandy beaches which turquoise waters lap against. There are also rugged areas and many places of local interest which include the fascinating Jersey tunnels and the castles at Gorey and St Aubin’s bay which have defended the Island for more than 300 years.
Moving onto St Hellier with its amazing shopping and upmarket boutique hotels which include some of the best restaurants on the Island, many are Michelin star eateries. Jersey is definitely a place for good fresh, local food and top class beverages watching the sunset go down behind the designer yachts. Don’t take my word for it try it for yourselves, it is so near and easy and is known to have much better weather than the rest of the British Isles without travelling for hours.
