Walking in Jersey is simply good for the soul. You will discover a landscape full of gentle surprises, shifting in a kaleidoscope of colour with each passing season. Blow away the cobwebs with fresh salty air as you drink in the dramatic beauty of Jersey’s coast. Meander along rugged cliff paths carpeted with gorse and wildflowers as the tide laps against the sweeping shoreline below.
Wander through wooded valleys and country lanes to birdsong, or gently amble along the marina to enjoy local food and drink at a seaside pub nestled in a French-style fishing village. As the sinking sun lights up the evening sky, paddle your tired feet in clear local waters when the day is done.
It’s easy to set out on your own and explore the island on foot. Once you’re on the trail, you can use the green lanes to ramble through farm and field or find hidden bays and secret coves. You’re never far from a public bus or friendly local to point you in the right direction. For a little extra motivation, work up an appetite on the windswept North coast before warming up in the snug surroundings of local Jersey pubs. Rest up over a hearty pint of Liberation Jersey Ale and tuck into delicious Jersey seafood before venturing out once more with a spring in your step.
