Located some 100 miles (160 kms) south of mainland Britain yet only 14 miles (22 kms) from the coast of France, Jersey provides the visitor with a kaleidoscope of sensory stimuli. Despite its small size – Jersey measures just nine miles by five (14 kms x 8 kms) -- all your senses are made to work overtime in this tiny Island.

It might be thought that an area of 45 square miles (116 square kms) with a permanent population of over 87,000 would have little but buildings to explore. But approach the Island by air and you see lush valleys, well-kept fields and an unspoilt coastline. Arrive by sea and the rocky grandeur of La Corbière, the sweep of St Aubin’s Bay and picturesque Elizabeth Castle set the scene for a grand encounter with a small but delightful island whose variety of scenery, wealth of history and sheer beauty compete with much larger and, perhaps, better-known destinations.

Some 450 miles (720 kms) of roadway (comprising a mix of fast roads and small country lanes) create endless opportunities to explore and discover the unexpected and impressive. Jersey also has a network of over 46 miles (74 kms) of Green Lanes where a speed limit of 15 mph (24 kph) is imposed and priority is given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
