Having visited the island you now have the opportunity to relax and unwind over the next couple of days. Time to take full advantage of the hotel’s wonderful leisure facilities such as the reclining deck-chairs in the beautiful, tranquil gardens, or a swim in the outdoor pool before lunch in the hotel café with outdoor seating. Then you might like to walk through the attractive park to the centre of St Helier, capital of the island, to explore its heritage and pedestrianised shopping areas.
The Elizabeth Castle, a 16thC fortress on a rocky islet, is a wonderful place to explore the history of Jersey, or you might like to visit the Maritime museum for displays on Jersey’s maritime heritage. The waterside marina is an interesting place to watch the world float by from the restaurants serving fresh fish. In town there are interesting shops for watches, jewellery and locally produced souvenirs.
Jersey has a convenient ‘hop on hop off’ bus system which can be used for independent travel around the island to visit attractions such as the world-famous Durrell Wildlife Park or the fascinating Jersey War Tunnels. You could even cross the 14 miles to France and spend the day in the beautiful medieval walled town of St Malo!
