JERSEY has featured on a list of top-ten long-distance coastal walking destinations in the British Isles and Europe.
Guernsey and Sark were also included in The Guardian’s ‘Channel Islands’ walk.
The newspaper described the mileage as ‘flexible’ and told readers to allow for six to 10 days.
‘Why stop at walking around one Island when you could do three?,’ the newspaper wrote, adding: ‘The Jersey loop is a combination of vast bays, high cliffs, hamlets, caves and cafés (don’t miss the crab sandwiches at Mad Mary’s in Bouley Bay). This could be spread over four days, or done in one at the annual Island Walk (17 June).’
Speaking to the JEP recently, tourists Kevin Walmsley and daughter Hannah came for a short father-daughter trip from Southampton, which involved coastal walks.
Mr Walmsley used to work in the Island as an accountant in the 1980s and 1990s.
He said: ‘The highlight of our trip was the Island’s beautiful walks, especially the one from La Motte to St Brelade.’
Visit Jersey promote walking holidays for tourists by suggesting self-guided walks on their website.
