This Jersey walking holiday on this wonderful coastal path of Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, can be walked over 6 days at about 8 miles per day, or you can walk it over 5 days at about 10 miles per day. Why not take a rest day, explore the wonderful beaches or the many inland paths. On this holiday you stay in one location in St Aubin and we include daily transfers back to your accommodation so all you have to do is enjoy this superb coastal walk.
This hiking tour offers an amazing variety of terrain, from heath-covered cliffs with views across the sea to the other Channel Islands, sloping sandy bays, secluded harbours to rocky coves.

Day 4: Greve de Lecq to Bouley Bay               9 miles

After leaving Bonne Nuit Bay the coastal footpath skirts Les Platons, at 469ft/143m the highest point on the Island of Jersey.

Day 5: Bouley Bay to Gorey                9 miles
From Bouley Bay the coastal footpath continues to Rozel Bay and Fliquet Bay, the closest point to the French coast, just 14 miles away. Walking at sea level now the path continues to St Catherine’s Bay. The landmark of Mont Orgueil Castle in Gorey guides you to the end of today’s walk and a visit to this castle is a highlight of any holiday in Jersey.

Here you can walk along the beach or the edge of the common as you pass the Royal Jersey Golf Club. The coastline towards St Helier is a lunar-like seascape that is covered twice daily by Jersey’s massive 40ft/12m tides, one of the highest tides in the world.
