The ‘Rock’, as it’s known by the locals, is not only rich in monetary investment, but in culture, landscape and, more often than not, it’s produce. There are often more exciting ways, on your Jersey Holidays, to understand and experience the Island that won’t cost you a penny!
Given the fact that Jersey has been an island for over 6000 years, there has been time to develop its own state of nature, something that will become apparent on your Jersey holiday. With this being true, it is especially interesting to mention at this point that Jersey has a lot of wildlife that is exclusive to the island, but to the contrary there are some curious exceptions.
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.
