Cheap flights to Jersey
A British island with a distinct French character, Jersey attracts tourists with its mix of understated class, history and outstanding beauty. It may only be a mere 116 square kilometres in size but the island of Jersey packs a lot into a small space. This tiny piece of England off the coast of France is a home from home for Brits looking for guaranteed good summer weather, and milder winter temperatures.
But that’s not the only reason Jersey pulls in the tourists. This is a place dominated by beautiful landscapes, sea views, rocky coastline and dramatic cliffs. And because of strict construction laws, the island has remained unchanged for decades. What’s more, you’ll find some of the best beaches in the British Isles on Jersey. Sandy swathes, rocky coves and secluded bays make up the 30 or so beaches on the island, which give those in the Mediterranean a good run for their money.
During the Jersey Textile Showcase 2014, on 5-11 March, you can take part in workshops led by top UK textile artists. The event is run by the Harbour Gallery in St Aubin (Le Boulevard, St Aubin, St Brelade, JE3 8AB, theharbourgalleryjersey.com/textile.html).
Make a visit to the Durrell Wildlife Park to see Quechua the South American Andean bear, the zoo's newest addition (Les Augrès Manor, La Profonde Rue, Trinity, JE3 5BP, durrell.org).
Step into an alien landscape with a guided "moonwalk" at low-tide. When the sun goes down and the tide goes out, millions of luminous green stars sparkle in the sand. See the bioluminescence and other marine life on this 90-minute walk that takes place several times a month. jerseywalkadventures.co.uk
