Jersey’s best kept secret by far, Les Ecrehous is a tiny archipelago of islets located some six miles off the north east corner of Jersey. Its beauty is breathtaking and special moments are to be had all year-round, from stunning sunrises over France and sunsets over Jersey, to the sight of dolphins accompanying you all the way there.

On a small island, natural resources feel very precious, maybe more than in larger countries and here in Jersey we definitely have a special bound with our fresh water supplies. The levels are monitored daily by walkers, dog walkers and many a jogger knows where to stop to catch their breath in front of a spectacular view point. Walking around the reservoirs is as much part of the island’s life as going to the beach.
Over 16 miles of awe inspiring panorama stretch between Jersey’s north east and north west corners. Our famous and well maintained cliff paths dominate this rugged part of the island, an area where you will hear the power of the sea crushing below, where birds swoop overhead in search of prey and where, despite the dramatic landscape, you will be immersed in a very peaceful local environment.
