Jersey Airport Destinations

Need to fly somewhere exciting from Jersey for a well-deserved holiday?

Or maybe even somewhere not so exciting for a business trip?

Perhaps you’re not sure where you want to go yet, but you just need to get away?

Whatever reason you’re searching for Jersey Airport destinations, we’ve got you covered.

But if you’re just passing through Jersey en route to somewhere else, you should definitely hang around for a few days to absorb some of its unique Anglo-French delights.

For instance, history buffs can immerse themselves in Jersey's wartime past by exploring the impressive Jersey War Tunnels, a labyrinthine network of bunkers, command rooms and even and hospitals - all built during WWII.

And you can venture back even further in time at Mont Orgueil Castle, a clifftop fortress affording outstanding views of the environs and a glimpse back across the centuries in this fascinating island.

Meanwhile, if you’re a bit of a salty seadog, don’t miss the Maritime Museum, which is packed with great exhibits on Jersey's seafaring past and lots of insider information on the legendary Battle of Jersey.

And Jersey’s no slouch when it comes to nature either. For instance, you can hike along the the coastal paths, where vertiginous cliff walks unveil breathtaking seascapes, beautiful bays, and secret coves. If the thought of this stirs your senses, then Grève de Lecq's dramatic headland is gorgeous and the isolated paths of Plemont Bay are sheer perfection.

Brilliant beaches are another hallmark of Jersey. For instance, the burnished sands of St. Brelade's Bay are a superb place to start, while St. Ouen's Bay is a magnet for surfers.

But what if you’re all about wildlife? As it happens, Jersey caters for animal lovers too. You can visit the globally-renowned Jersey Zoo, with its fine record for breeding endangered species and steadfast commitment to conservation, and it’s also lovely to stroll through the lush Durrell Wildlife Park and hop on a boat to spot dolphins off the coast.

So far, so good, but a little sedate for your tastes? No problem: there’s plenty of adrenaline-pumping action in Jersey too.

For starters, instead of watching surfers catch some of those awesome waves, you can have a go at conquering the board yourself – there’s surf in Jersey for everyone from raw recruits to rawhide professionals. Hire a board if you’ve got the requisite skills or take a fun lesson if you’re an absolute beginner.

And Jersey’s watersports selection doesn’t end with surfing. There’s also jet-skiing, kitesurfing and paragliding. And if you’re game for venturing under the sea, Jersey’s pristine waters are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving, and if you’re lucky you’ll see tons of tropical fish and a charming seal or two.

Provided you’ve got a clean bill of health and are feeling reasonably fit, this is also an awesome island to explore on foot. And a walking tour of St Helier, St. Aubin and Gorey reveals the rich depths of Jersey’s culture and history. Plus, time your walk right and you can cap it off with a sublime sunset views – they really are some of the best in the world.

Jersey also shapes up pretty well when it comes to cuisine. Foodies love Tides Restaurant & Voyager Lounge Bar in St. Aubin for its modern British cuisine with eye-catching sea views. And you can sample the tasting menu or opt for à la carte – the selection is practically popping with fresh local seafood and delicious seasonal ingredients.

Alternatively, try Summersalt, near St. Brelade's Bay. This modern restaurant has first-rate sea views complementing its ground-breaking global fusion dishes – the seafood platter is legendary, and you can also order a steak which some visitors swear is the best they’ve ever tasted.

And if you’re a serious gourmet, miss The Ocean Restaurant at your peril. This Michelin-starred emporium at St. Brelade's Bay specialises in captivatingly creative seafood dishes and service which is second-to-none.

With all that sightseeing, pulse racing action and top-class dining, you’ll probably want to slake your thirst. And Jersey has its fair share of hostelries and night spots to suit a range of tastes.

Try The Drift for expansive sea vistas and colourful cocktails on the scenic terrace – there’s everything from artisan gin and tonics to standout rum punches, and house specials.

Then there’s The Blind Pig, a speakeasy-style joint in St. Helier with an impressive cocktail menu, cracking live music, and a swinging retro vibe. And The Albion Pub is another favourite. This traditional British boozer has a cozy atmosphere, fabulous real ale selection and lots of delicious pub grub.
