I came here over the Easter weekend and whilst it was cold and wet I think I can safely say that I would love to come back to explore Jersey in the summer so watch this spot.
From my limited time on the Island I can say that the people are for the most part incredibly friendly and helpful. Jersey is only 14km long and 8km wide although as you make your way along the narrow winding roads it feels larger. Beautiful white sandy beaches are everywhere some safer then others due to the extreme tidal movements which can cause strong currents making swimming dangerous.
There are many remnants to be seen of German fortifications when Jersey was the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the Nazi's for 5 long years, islanders that remained suffered to the point of starvation. Jersey was liberated on 9 May 1945.
- Pros:friendly people, inexpensive quality restuarants, VAT free haven
- Cons:winter bus timetable, seasonal openings
