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.
Beautiful cows with delicious milk is the simple key to Jersey Dairy’s incredible success over the years. In fact since 1763 – that’s over 250 years of breed protection, product development and now international fame.
One of Jersey’s top tourist attractions, Jersey War Tunnels is a historical site like no other. Life in Jersey took an eerie turn during WWII, with slaves being brought in from Poland, France, Russia & Spain to dig an underground hospital for the injured German troops.
