Condé Nast Traveller has named Jersey as one of Europe’s top five walking destinations.
The travel magazine rated the island as Europe’s best location for quiet coastal hikes and fabulous food and praised Jersey’s unique ‘vibe.’
‘This tiny island (it would take a matter of hours to drive the full circle of its coast) is fringed on all sides with near-deserted beaches and cliffside walking trails that wind their way through the hills above,’ said the article, which singled out Plémont Beach for recommendation.
‘Jersey is a wonderful destination for foodies too. Seafood is, unsurprisingly, the order of the day. Find some of the best at Faulkner Fisheries, where fresh catches of local scallops, prawns and lobster are simply barbecued and served with a hunk of soft bread and all-encompassing coastal views; or at Rozel Bay’s candy-striped kiosk, The Hungry Man.’
Other destinations picked by the magazine included the Dolomites in Italy, The Alps, The Scottish Highlands and Lake Constance on the German/Austrian border.
