Here are our five most Instagrammable locations in Jersey.
Where else in the world can you find a 13th-century castle overlooking a harbour filled with every vessel from dinghies to yachts? Let alone built on a beach with some of the largest tides on earth.
From when the sun rises behind Mont Orgueil castle to when it sets over the hill, and whether the water’s edge is close enough to touch or literally miles away, Gorey is a top spot for any instagrammer.
HAVRE DES PAS
Although a smaller beach than others, Havre des Pas is another golden photo spot – located in the town on Jersey’s south coast. If you’re interested in capturing more unusual and experimental images, you’ll like the geometry and structure of the sea-blue and white Victorian promenade.
Visiting Havres des Pas is like stepping back in time and photographing a piece of history. With its classic design and natural swimming pool, you can imagine yourself as a tourist enjoying a sixties Jersey summer.
There are many things that make Jersey special and our beautiful Jersey dairy cows are famous the world over. These stunning, placid creatures have wide, dark eyes and soft, curious noses. The world famous Jersey cows certainly won’t be hard to find wherever you go on the island, so be sure to capture their beauty for your Instagram.
Known in Jersey as ‘The Ecrehous’, this tiny group of islands are six miles north-east of our coast. Despite their French title, they’re part of the Bailiwick and, more specially, the parish of St. Martin.
They’re no longer inhabited by full-time residents, but the largest island is scattered with some small fishermen’s huts. There aren’t many people in the world who know about this small paradise – so it’s perfect for your unique, one-of-a-kind Instagram photo.
St OUEN’S BAY
This bay covers almost the entire west coast of the island and is a landscape photographer’s dream. Running parallel to what’s locally known as the ‘Five Mile Road’, it’s an expanse of open sandy space where surfers and paddle-boarders ride the Atlantic waves.
The Napoleonic La Rocco tower is a particularly striking landmark, especially when its backdrop sky turns pink.
People travel to far corners of the earth for the best sunsets to discover nothing quite beats St Ouen’s bay.
