Walking in Jersey

The Jersey Round Island Walk is a circuit of Jersey’s beautiful coastline, with a tremendous contrast in scenery for such a compact area. Heather cover the north coast path upwards affording you fantastic views of the other Channel Islands, while in the south the landscape shifts into sloping sandy bays and harbours surrounding the capital St Helier.

Jersey-island-Round-WalkFrom the rockier marine environment on the island’s east coast, the Cherbourg peninsula is visible just 18 miles across the Channel in France, while on the west coast the blue waters and wide sands of St Ouen’s Bay unfold before your eyes.

Path Walkthrough

Jersey Round Island - walk map
Our Jersey Walking Holidays chart a complete circuit of the island, starting in St. Helier

Expansive cliff and coastal paths with inland sections through woodland along country lanes. make up the paths that encompass Jersey island. Gradients are often gentle, but there are some rugged cliff paths and occasional steep slopes found along the coast. However, the island is mainly flat & steep ascents are not overly prolonged with Jersey’s highest point being 446 feet - only a few yards inland at les Platons.

Walkers can expect to find prehistoric sites, castles and churches, as well as massive concrete reminders of the Nazi occupation during their round-island walk, as well as tiny, colourful fishing harbours - such as Bouley Bay.

  • Best time to Travel

    Jersey is suitable as a year-round destination and generally enjoys slightly milder weather than the south of England, but the weather is still highly variable and impossible to forecast accurately. Winters are mild, but there may be frosts and, very occasionally, snow. Very bad weather at any time of year can upset ferry schedules, while fog affects flights.

    The peak summer period can be very hot and busy, which may not suit those looking for peace and quiet. The shoulder seasons, spring and autumn, are generally ideal for walking, with bright, clear days and temperatures that are neither too high nor too low.
