Top healthy things to do in Jersey
All of our Jersey Chiropractors would argue that Jersey boasts the world’s most spectacular and beautiful beaches. Still, perhaps we are biased in our opinion. From St Brelade’s Bay to Greve de Lecq and Beauport Beach. Our island boasts 12 main beaches and multiple smaller bays to explore. Our favourite is St Ouens Bay, the longest stretch of sand on the island. A great day’s activity starts at the southern end of La Pulente and walks the bay’s whole stretch. This walk ends in the north, and, if you time your walk well, you can grab some healthy local seafood for lunch from Faulkner Fisheries. A Fishery built inside an old WW2 bunker.
Jersey has some of the most unique castles boasting the most spectacular views in the UK. Elizabeth Castle, being surrounded by water at high tide, makes for an excellent opportunity to take a hike out and enjoy the fresh sea air. Mont Orgueil Castle isn’t so treacherous but is situated on a hill. It has a ton of stairs to get your heart pumping and blood flowing whilst soaking in some incredible views of the French beaches and wild Jersey sea.
Jersey Zoo is a brilliant zoological park focusing on rare and endangered species. It was established in 1959 by the writer Gerald Durrell. Aside from a nice outdoor walk, connecting with animals and our planet is highly nourishing for our mental well-being and soul.
Situated out west on the frontier of the island, with a dramatic causeway that is only walkable on the lower tide. La Corbière lighthouse is a brilliant little hike out into the depths of our Jersey sea. Ensure you plan well as the tide moves fast. We would suggest only walking out to the lighthouse on the dropping tide.
The island has many parks to entertain the kids and soak up the local history. One such park is Howard Davis Park, which has a great kid’s play area and sweeping lawns for a healthy picnic. It also has some of the island’s iconic and historical statues.
One of the most popular rainy day activities for tourists is diving into the island’s rich history. Connecting with our ancestors and understanding where we came from is an essential appreciation for the lives we live. Jersey Museum and Art Gallery is a great place to start your exploration, as well as historical sites like La Hougue Bie Museum, and Jersey’s maritime history at the Maritime Museum. And no mention of our history can’t include Jersey’s massive role in WW2, so a visit to the dramatic Jersey War Tunnels must be on your list.
