Lots of different beautiful beaches with beach cafes and bars. De-stressing tips: Sunbathing on the beach, eating nice food and going for drinks at some of the busy bars. Activities I did: Surfing. Places I saw: Little Fistral Point – climb around on the rocks (if safe!! And bring a picnic, you can sit feeling like you're the only ones there with a 360 [degree] stunning view!)

Went to Sark Island on the ferry, there is enough there for a holiday in itself! Beautiful beaches and friendly people. Recommend Mont Orgueil Castle and surfing at St. Ouen's Bay. De-stressing tips: Sitting on the beach at St. Ouen's Bay watching the surfers. 

H Hazel

Jersey is utterly delightful and very interesting. We toured the whole island and everywhere was immaculate... The beaches are vast at low tide giving space for lots of beach games and when the tide is in there is safe [space for] bathing and surfing. I liked walking along the coastal path and beaches.
