Summer lasts longer in Jersey than anywhere else in the UK and the island is the ideal tonic from fast-paced city life. With its warm waters, relaxed pace and blaze of fiery colours, Jersey is at its most intoxicating during the autumn season.
The island punches far above its weight with a myriad of restaurants, from Michelin-star, to chic beachside cafes. With some of the best beaches in the world, unspoiled countryside, vibrant capital town in St Helier and luxurious spas, Jersey is a place to rejuvenate and relax.
Local autumn specialties such as cider and black butter are in plentiful supply at this time of the year. The seafood found in Jersey is the best you could hope to taste – the lobster and oysters particularly mouth-watering.
For those who aren’t able to visit Jersey in person this year, or want to get a taste of the action – ‘Escape to Jersey’, has launched an immersive and interactive new tool using first person video footage to encapsulate the Jersey experience. It allows you to create a tailor made video based on your holiday preferences and see what your dream trip to Jersey might look like. Visit http://www.escapetojersey.com for more information.
The autumn months are also packed full with events to make the most of the island’s superb food, culture and heritage offerings.
Faîs’sie d’Cidre (17 – 18 October) – celebrates Jersey’s rich heritage of growing apples and making cider.
Whether you are after a long or short break, foodie getaway, romantic weekend or active experience – Jersey is a delight, from the moment you step foot on the island, and the perfect spot to catch the last of the sunshine.
