Measuring 9 miles by 5 miles, Jersey boasts plenty of easily-accessible coastline that's ripe for being explored on a holiday. If you want to make the most of this stunning scenery, why not book a table at one of the seaside restaurants for the perfect end to your day?
As the largest of the Channel Islands, this destination boasts plenty to see and enjoy, and among the most popular activities are walking and cycling. As a result, when it comes to what to do in Jersey, exploring the great outdoors is a good option.
The many paths that run around the coast allow you to experience some beautiful vistas, while the varied terrain proves there is something for everyone to tackle, no matter what your abilities.
All that exercise is sure to see you work up an appetite, which is why it makes sense to pop into one of the cafes, pubs or restaurants that are located near these routes so you can tuck into some delicious local dishes, while not straying too far from those mesmerising views.
So, where are the best places to book a table? There's a lot to choose from but the following options are among our favourites.
Roseville Bistro is a lovely little family-run eatery near St Helier on the Havre des Pas seafront. The establishment has taken much inspiration from its coastal surroundings; from the nautical-style interior decor to the fresh fruits of the sea you will be served.
You can expect to sample delicious king prawns or freshly-prepared Jersey crab cakes when you dine here, although you may wish to arrive early if you want to be sure of ordering the lobster, as the dish is particularly popular.
At Seascale Restaurant, you will find the fresh seafood to be equally delicious, although you will be able to enjoy a different coastal view from the windows, as this establishment is located on Gorey Pier in St Martin.
This is a particularly stunning location as it is close to Mont Orgeuil Castle and has views out across the harbour, so if you have taken a stroll in these parts during the day you could pop in for lunch.
If you want to visit one of the hippest joints on the island, consider The Beach House in St Brelade. Combining a relaxed cafe vibe with sublime food, the establishment serves up a selection of fresh seafood and tapas to its customers, with options including fried salt and pepper squid and Thai-style mussels.
Another fun eatery to head to is The Watersplash in St Ouen, especially if you're holidaying with your kids. A surfers' hangout that includes a nightclub, the diner is a great place to come for lunch if you want a wrap, salad or bowl of pasta that you can tuck into while breathing in the salty sea air.
Finally, if you're after some traditional grub, try The Seymour Inn in Grouville. This is a pub that is popular with both locals and visitors to the island, so whether you want to grab a pint and play some darts, sample the speciality oysters while dining alfresco or feast on fish and chips after a long day's walk, you will be able to do so.
As you can see, there are plenty of options when it comes to eating out in Jersey and these are just a few of the best.
