The largest of the child-friendly Channel Islands, Jersey figures among the top 10 islands in Europe and as the very best in the UK in TripAdvisor’s latest round of awards, thanks to its lovely beaches and scenery, its walking trails, its historic sights and pretty villages, as well as its high levels of sunshine.
Jersey is a classic family holiday destination, offering sandy beaches within easy reach of the UK, plus lots of scope for days out, from Mont Orgueil Castle or the War Tunnels dating from the Channel Islands’ occupation during World War II to Gerald Durrell’s Wildlife Park.
