Tourist accommodation is located throughout the island of Jersey, from simple B&Bs to luxurious five-star hotels. For great beach locations head to St Helier, Grouville and St Aubin.
Other areas are also popular among tourists, including St Brelade, St Clement, St Lawrence, St Martin, St Mary, St Ouen, St Peter and St Saviour, where many inland hotels are set in the rolling countryside. There is a superb range of guest houses and self-catering accommodation as well.
The iconic Mont Orgueil Castle is without doubt Jersey's most famous landmark and attraction why not hire a car and visit it. The castle is located at the eastern tip of the island in the harbour of Gorey and was erected by the Duchy of Normandy to defend the island against French invaders. Construction commenced in 1204. The castle, which is open to the public, is an exciting labyrinth of staircases and rooms full of interesting objects and artwork. Check for opening hours before visiting, but it is well worth a look.
The fine weather and great countryside have made Jersey a popular golfing holiday destination. If you are looking for this type of break, take a look at Jersey hotels in St Ouens Bay where you will find St Mielles and Les Ormes Golf clubs.
For those looking for chic nightlife and great shopping, take a look at Jersey hotels located in the capital of St Helier. Here you will also find the Jersey Museum and the Maritime Museum. St Helier has the added benefit of being on the coast, so when you have finished shopping and taking in the culture, why not head to the waterfront to watch the boats and enjoy some time in the waterfront café or bar?
The island hosts a range of annual events and festivals, including the Jersey Live Festival. This live music event has been running for a number of years, pulling in great crowds with acts such as Madness, Plan B, Primal Scream and The Tings Tings performing in recent years. The festival usually takes place in early September in Trinity and if you want to go, make sure you book your accommodation early as this event is extremely popular and well attended.
Also in September is Jersey's International Air Display event. This is one of the biggest free air shows in Europe and takes place in St Brelade. Again, accommodation during this time gets booked up quickly, so act fast to reserve your place.
Another major event is the Jersey Portuguese Food Festival. This is a fun event run over five days in St Helier. Enjoy freshly prepared Portuguese cuisine whilst enjoying live music and fairground rides. Hotels in St Helier are always popular and even more so at the end of August when this annual festival comes around.
