The UK’s longest summers are in Jersey
Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. They form a UK Crown Dependency, but are far detached from the mainland. Whilst Jersey is approximately 100 miles from the UK, it is a mere 14 miles from France’s Normandy coast. French influences, of course, abound throughout the islands and to the delight of holidaymakers. The climate also, is equably French, rather than chilly British. The result is the best of both worlds for holidaying Brits and legions of French visitors. In Jersey, the early spring evaporates into a long, hot summer days, with the added attraction of an intoxicating nightlife.
Closely knit Jersey patterns
Jersey covers an area of approximately 75 square miles, so its many features and attractions are never far away. Jersey’s popularity for many is linked to traditional family holidays. Nostalgia may not be what it used to be, but beaches such as Plemont do provide that hint of days gone by. The beach is glorious but disappears completely at high tide. The tide is a feature across this island which has been fashioned by the sea over the centuries. When the tide ebbs, the land area increases by approximately 30%. St. Ouen's Bay is another popular spot for sea frolicking and sunbathing. St. Brelade’s Bay is a further family favourite, with a number of attractive hotels to tempt the visitor. St. Aubin is a good solution if you want easy bus and taxi access the lively nightlife in the capital, St. Helier. The main beach in St. Helier is, itself, spectacular at all times of the year.
A croaking tale of Cabbages and Kings
The famous Jersey Cabbage has passed its sell-by date now, but in the 19th century it was cultivated with enthusiasm and reached a height of around nine feet. It doesn’t apply to residents of Guernsey or any of the other Channel Islands, but, for some reason, the French sometimes refer to Jersey folk as Crapauds, or Toads.
There is a clear link to the USA’s New Jersey which is almost 200 times greater than the island of Jersey. One of the island’s most treasured buildings is in St. Helier where visitors head in the direction of the Opera House. It was re-opened in 1900 with performances by Jersey-born star, Lillie Langtry. Ornate features include a glass chandelier of 10,000 pieces. The Opera House stages attractions throughout the year and plays an essential role in Jersey’s entertainment scene.
Jersey has the wit to woo the night owl
There is nightlife here to compare with other major European holiday destinations. The island’s relatively small area means that it is easy to wander around the nightspots of St. Helier without the need for transport. This factor is helped by a reliable summer climate which is several degrees warmer than that on the UK mainland. Jersey scores highly when catering for the holidaymaker’s love of tradition. In this fabulous setting and climate, traditional British cuisine sits alongside European and other favourites. Sophisticated nightclubs have traditional public houses as neighbours and the island has country pubs featuring real ale favourites. Liberation Brewery has been brewing Jersey’s ales for more than 100 years. There are traditional ciders too, made using Jersey-grown apples. Food is equally appealing and wide ranging. Whether the choice is a high-rated gastronomic treat, pub grub, or choices from a beachside café, you’ll find that they use lots of fresh local produce and seafood. There’s something for everyone to savour on Jersey.
Getting there and stopping
From mainland Europe, there’s easy ferry access to St. Helier in Jersey from St. Malo and other ports. Travellers from the UK will probably opt for the Poole or Portsmouth ferries. There are also flights to and from Jersey’s Airport. These operate from a number of UK regional airports. Once here, variety is the spice of life with a full choice and price range of hotels, bed and breakfasts, apartments and camping sites. There is no shortage, either, of things to do. An annual highlight is the Battle of Flowers. This is staged every August and is up there with the most impressive festivals staged in Mediterranean countries. The Jersey International Air Display centres on St. Aubin’s Bay and features aircraft from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. During October, many restaurants take part in Tennerfest, which is a celebration of local produce. La Fête dé Noué heralds the arrival of Christmas with markets and celebrations. There is much to celebrate and throughout the year, in Jersey.
