If you're planning a Jersey short break, you'll swiftly discover there are plenty of attractions vying for your attention. Despite measuring just 9 miles by 5, the largest of the Channel Islands certainly does have a lot to offer holidaymakers.
Indeed, with so many attractions in Jersey it can be hard to choose between them. However, here's our list of five activities we think will make for the perfect weekend getaway.
Hit the beach
Jersey might be small but it is packed with stunning golden beaches, each offering its own unique charms. From quiet secluded spots that are perfect for spending a relaxing few hours reading a book, to bustling stretches that are alive with sunbathers and surfers during the summer, Jersey has it all.
Indeed, when the weather is right, it is well worth heading to St Ouen's Bay, which is Jersey's main west coast break. Don't worry if you don't have the necessary gear with you, as there are several places nearby where you can hire it, while you can also attend surf school here if you're a beginner.
Other seaside activities to tempt you include water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and coasteering. If you're a keen diver you will also want to take advantage of the scuba diving offered around the island.
Take a walk
Jersey is renowned for its varied terrain - something that immediately stands out given the size of the island. As a result, it has something to offer all levels of hiker - and this has been taken full advantage of, as you will see when you check out the footpaths that crisscross the island.
Twice a year, Jersey holds a special walking week - one in the spring and one in the autumn. During these periods, there is even more on offer to outdoor enthusiasts than usual, including a special range of guided tours.
However, whatever time of year you come, you will be able to have fun on two feet and there are often guided tours being run if you feel like learning while you stroll.
Just like walking, cycling is something Jersey is well equipped for, with mile upon mile of cycle paths across the island to choose from.
You can arm yourselves with maps and follow established routes past particularly interesting places, or simply set out on your own two wheels and just see where the road takes you.
There are 50 miles of green trails for you to pedal down. These are routes where pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders get priority over drivers, which means you can relax and get on with enjoying your beautiful surroundings.
See the sights
It's not only the natural attractions that make Jersey so compelling, but also its manmade ones.
The island is littered with historical sights, from Elizabeth Castle in St Aubin's Bay - which has been one of Jersey's cornerstones of defence for centuries - to the Jersey War Tunnels, used by the Nazis as a hospital for their troops during the occupation of World War II.
Holidays shouldn't be all about rushing from one attraction to another - it's also important to relax. Luckily, Jersey has some amazing luxury hotels you can stay at, with several featuring an onsite spa.
After a day of pampering you can head out for a slap-up meal at one of the restaurants, some of which boast Michelin Stars.
