Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, between England and France.

To the east pretty harbours and bays as well as the iconic Mont Orgueil Castle.

Our route takes us the full length of St Ouen’s Bay which provides a perfect natural arena for many sports, including motor racing, board sailing and surfing. After crossing the bay we climb the headland passing Le Pinacle, a 200ft outcrop of pink granite. We walk along the headland to the ruin of Grosnez Castle, a 14th century fort. Continuing along the undulating cliff path we arrive at Plemont Bay.

8½ miles (13.5km) with 250 feet (80m) of ascent

Our walk takes us on the dramatic northern cliff-top path to Greve de Lecq with its sandy beach, mill conversion pub and cafés. We continue to the Priory Inn where a detour can be taken to visit the Devil’s Hole; a collapsed cave. We now cross the Mourier Valley and walk on to Sorrel Point. We finally descend to Bonne Nuit Bay, a once famous haunt of smugglers of Spanish brandy, French wines and tobacco.

9 miles (14km) with 1150 feet (350m) of ascent and 1,400 feet (420m) of descent

The toughest day of walking on the holiday. Leaving Bonne Nuit Bay we pass La Crete Fort, a mid 19th century guardhouse and now the Lieutenant Governor’s weekend retreat. Heading east we pass La Petit Port on our way to Bouley Bay. Here we join the undulating coastal path that takes us to the White Rock, above Rozel Bay. We continue to Flicquet Bay where we see our first Jersey round tower, one of 30 built in the 18th century to help counter a French invasion.

12 miles (19km) with 1,520 feet of (460m) ascent and descent

Today no walks are organised allowing you to explore the island on your own. Bring your National Trust card if you have one, as it can be used in Jersey.

Depending on the tides, much of this walk can be undertaken along the beach. Leaving Gorey Pier we walk along the promenade to La Rocque Harbour. We continue to St Helier passing the Victoria and South Piers and the Commercial Buildings which were built by wealthy merchants in the early 1800s. Leaving St Helier we continue our walk along St Aubin’s Bay.

11½ miles (18.5km) with 100 feet (30m) of ascent and descent.

Idyllic Beach view

We restart our walk from St Aubin Harbour which was once the main base for the Jersey cod merchants. We continue across St Brelade’s Bay where we have the opportunity to visit the ancient church and the Fisherman’s Chapel. We now cross the headland above Flicquet Bay and aim for the former German Artillery Observation Tower, to finish our walk at Corbière.

8 miles (13km) with 725 feet (220m) of ascent and 600 feet (180m) of descent


We have arranged transfers for you to be taken to the airport to catch your flight.
