Historically, with a rich tapestry of British and continental influences, Jersey is the most enchanting of British isles destinations. The island is divided into 12 parish areas. Occasional villages provide a focal point for parish life. Even today you will still sometimes hear Jerriais (the original language of Jersey). Nowhere is far, the island is just 9 miles by 5.
The country parishes offer a pace that is suited to the breathtaking scenery with beautiful bays, cliff walks and open countryside. Jersey's award winning 'Green Lane' scheme is a network of country lanes where traffic speed is reduced to 15 miles per hour. This makes an ideal environment for walkers and cyclists.Many beaches have won international acclaim for their level of cleanliness both in and out of the water. The Town St Helier is a bustling coastal town with a profusion of entertainment and award winning eating houses to suit all budgets. An excellent pedestrian shopping area features familiar chain stores as well as local independent shops.
Jersey is proud of its diverse heritage, which is in evidence throughout the island. There are excellent museums where you can learn more of island history from Neolithic times to modern day. Gerald Durrell's world famous Wildlife Conservation Trust along with the islands unique flora and fauna are great attractions for those interested in nature. An abundance of excellent sport and water sport facilities exists to tempt - surfing, water skiing, sailboarding, jet ski, scuba diving, etc.
