Experience the island break, soak up the best of St Helier, the coast, history and culture during your stay at THE INN.
The beautiful island of Jersey has a mix of British, French and other European influences. It’s a unique island – like nowhere you’ll have been before. We are known for our beaches, cliffside walking trails, historic castles and breath-taking landscape. There’s a wealth of things to see and do here, there’s no chance of you ever being bored!
If you’re a foodie you’ll be in heaven! We are the island of Jersey Royals, fresh Jersey milk and seafood straight from the fishermen who work out of our gorgeous harbours. Then there’s the local specialities like espetadas, oysters and lobster to sample too. We’re a little biased but you can’t beat trying these in our restaurant, where we use locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.
If there’s one thing you’ll notice at THE INN, it’s our friendly teams’ passion for the island, so we thought we would round up some of our highlights of the Island. Really, there’s far too much to include – so why not ask our wonderful staff for their recommendations when you stay?
There’s 45 miles of varied coastline to explore on Jersey. From the rugged cliffs on the north coast with the luscious green landscape, to the picture-perfect golden sands of the south coast, there’s a beach for everyone. The west coast is perfect for surfers and adventurers with its golden beaches, dunes and crashing waves. While the east coast is littered with golden beaches, traditional harbours and secret landscapes only uncovered with the low tide.
Stephen – Not quite the coast, but a favourite walk is around Queen’s Valley Reservoir near the East coast. A peaceful place to walk or run around, full of nature

Pedro – Fishing at Bouley Bay is a favourite
Jersey has had a turbulent and rich past. Our stunning island has been fought over for many centuries, with many cultures leaving their mark over our varied landscape. You’ll find Stone Age Monuments, two castles, forts built to protect the island from French invades and the world-famous war tunnels left behind after German occupation in World War Two. So, pick a period in time and start exploring!
