Holidays to Jersey
Part of the Channel Islands, located just off the coast of Normandy, a Jersey holiday offers a distinctly Trans-Continental experience. Despite English being the official language, many other things about the island are resolutely French – including the marvellous beaches and weather. At Co-operative Travel we offer cheap holidays to Jersey both in and out of season.
The Bailiwick of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Isles and like Guernsey, has been under the protection of the British Crown since 1066. With hot Mediterranean summers, mild winter temperatures and a low annual rainfall, Jersey package holidays are a popular option at any time of year, with a year-round calendar of events. During the summer months, bargain holidays to Jersey are a popular choice for families, who can enjoy spacious, sandy beaches, clean safe swimming waters and the annual Festival of the Flowers. In autumn, people book Jersey holidays for the Tennerfest – a food festival celebrating the fusion of English and French flavours which describes Jersey cuisine.
The most popular resort for last minute Jersey holidays is St Helier, the capital, on the sunny south coast. Hotel accommodation in Jersey ranges from luxury spa resorts to small, intimate boutiques and family-run guest houses. Self-catering accommodation is also available in apartments, villas and cottages across the island. When it comes to late deals, Jersey allows endless flexibility of choice.
Jersey package holidays offer something for everyone; Jersey Zoo, the German War Tunnels, Mont Orgueil Castle and a range of other attractions. A walk through the pretty lanes will show fascinating archaeological sites charting 8000 years of history. However, the main reason to book cheap Jersey holidays is for the beaches. In the south, St Aubin’s and St Lawrence offer broad sweeps of clean white sand and a wide range of water sports, while to the north are fascinating rock pools and hidden inlets. Gorey beach, in the southeast, is a favourite with young families.
