Practical information : Move & Laze around Channel Islands
Budget & Tips
Many activities revolve around the sea and beaches (surfing, swimming, windsurfing, sailing...), but not only! From Saint-Hélier, and in Jersey in general, you will be spoilt for choice between walking along the coastal paths, cycling, golf, pond fishing or the more traditional croquet... If the activities are numerous, many of them cost nothing. So, let's go for a swim, a walk and a tan!
What's very local
On Sundays, we put on our walking shoes and we walk the paths of the island (or we ride a bike) and we offer ourselves a small family picnic on the beach as soon as the weather is fine.
Your documents please
If life is rather sweet on the archipelago, tourism providers will still ask you to prove your identity: don't forget your passport! Don't forget your passport, as well as your driver's license when you pick up your rental car, your scooter, or even your bicycle, electric or mechanical. Divers, don't forget to bring your diving card if you want to go beyond the baptism!
To be booked
In high season and especially during the European school vacations, it is better to book your excursions in advance. You can never be too careful! For all activities, especially the popular sand yachting sessions or boat tours, it is better to book your place two or three weeks before your arrival. It would be a shame to miss it!
In a small country like the Channel Islands, which lives largely on tourism, the vast majority of service providers are very serious. Just beware of touts who offer tours and who are not necessarily part of a real agency.
