Jersey In Bloom

Jersey’s Battle of Flowers is one of the biggest floral parades in Europe. At the two-day festival, held every August, revellers can enjoy colourful carnival floats, live music and street performers. The whole island gets involved in the celebrations, but the main action is found along the seafront near St Helier.

 

The first ever Battle of Flowers festival was held in 1902 in celebration of a Royal Coronation, and ever since it has become a major highlight in Jersey’s calendar of festivals and events.

Tasty Dishes

As an island, with so much beautiful coastline, it’s unsurprising that Jersey’s speciality when it comes to delicious dishes is seafood. But no ordinary, run-of-the-mill seafood, locally caught oysters and lobsters are big hitters on restaurant menus. Enjoying these delights in a seafront restaurant is the best way to soak up Jersey in all its glory.

 

For a more laid back affair, try crab sticks from a beachfront shack – you’ll find them in St Brelade’s Bay and Gorey. These tasty treats will be as fresh as the sea breeze and if you’re a seafood lover, there’s no better way to enjoy the delicacy when you’re a few metres away from where the crabs were caught that same day!

The Great Outdoors

St Brelade’s Bay attracts its fair share of visitors who want to enjoy the soft sandy beaches and shallow waters. St Brelade’s Bay is a south-facing stretch of coastline meaning it’s a real sun trap, perfect for soaking up the rays and topping up your tan!

 

For a touch of royalty and amazing views, head over to Mont Orgueil Castle which overlooks the fishing village of Gorey. The castle has more than 800 years of history to uncover which you can learn all about as you wander around its towers and dungeons. Along with history, the castle also has breathtaking views, and on clear days you can see the French shoreline from the castle’s walkways.
