The rugged and naturally beautiful island of Jersey is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination for tourists in Europe. The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey sits between the coasts of England and France. Visitors are blessed with a location that has a favourable climate, welcoming locals and an abundance of idyllic beaches and coves. The good news for pet owners is that there are plenty of guesthouses, B&Bs and hotels in Jersey that are willing to accept furry friends too.
Walking Holidays in Jersey
With so much natural beauty and views out across the Atlantic and to the French coast, it's easy to see why Jersey is so popular among keen ramblers. At only nine miles by five miles, even inexperienced walkers can see much of the island on foot in a relatively short amount of time. What better way to traverse this magnificent isle than with your four-legged companion in tow?
The three-star Beausite Hotel is located in Grouville, in the east of the island. The rural hotel welcomes dogs and is surrounded by ample countryside, ideal for walking. The picturesque east coast is also within easy reach. There's even a gorgeous indoor pool to help you relax after a long day's walking.
No matter what time of year you're heading to the Channel Islands, no visit to Jersey would be complete without checking out some of its outstanding beaches. From peaceful stretches of sand to rugged rocky coves, the island boasts an impressive variety of beaches, many of which welcome pets.
St. Ouen's Bay, in the west of Jersey, welcomes dogs throughout the year. Facing out towards the Atlantic, this beach is particularly popular with water sports enthusiasts. A number of the island's best golf courses are also nearby. The Hotel Miramar is nearby, and is happy to welcome pets along with families.
Other beaches which welcome dogs all year round include Portelet Bay, Greve de Lecq and Rozel, in the north east. The north east is a great spot for camping, and there are plenty of beautiful walks to be had in the area. The main town of St. Helier isn't far away, either.
