Do & See
For such a small island there is a wealth of attractions and activities to suit just about every age and taste here. History lovers of all periods will definitely find something of interest ranging from the Neolithic monument at La Hougue Bie to the legacy of preserved fortifications of the German occupation scattered around the island. The south is dominated by golden sweeps of fine sandy beaches such as St Aubin’s and St Brelade’s, while some of the world’s best surfing and wake-boarding can be found on St Ouen’s Bay on the west coast. In complete contrast, the north of the island is one dramatic cliff and headlands that shelter hidden coves and tiny fishing harbours such as Rozel and Bonne Nuit Bay. This is also one of the best places to observe bird life and, like the rest of the island, the area is interspersed with former German fortifications.
