Jersey beaches continue to rank among the best in the world

Jersey is one of the best destinations for a beach holiday this year according to an article published by AOL Travel.

Holiday hopefuls looking for a beach getaway may have been surprised to see Jersey featured on a list of ‘Best Beach Holidays for 2017’ alongside exotic destinations such as Mexico, Dubai and the Philippines.

In the article published by AOL travel, Jersey featured 13th on a list of 15 beach destinations the publication was recommending for 2017.

The article told UK readers that Jersey was ‘an island escape on your doorstep.’ It boasted about the array of beach environments that can be found on our island from the waves of St. Ouen, to the sandy beaches in St. Brelade and the rocky pools of adventure along the north and east coasts.


Adam Caerlewy-Smith, Head of Marketing at ‘Visit Jersey’ said: “Following our media outreach activity, it’s fantastic news that Jersey has been named as one of the 'Best Beach Holidays for 2017’, alongside destinations such as Barbados, Mauritius and Bermuda. Positive press coverage is an important part of creating awareness and interest for Jersey as a holiday destination.”

This is not the first time Jersey has found itself included in top holiday destination lists.

 Last year, Jersey out-ranked Capri in Tripadvisors ‘Top 10 list of European Islands’ and came top of a list rating islands in the UK and the Channel Islands

I presume the judges never saw St. Aubins Bay blighted by sea lettuce during the summer months.
