On the east coast the walls and towers of Mont Orgueil guard the coastline above Gorey harbour and the beachside links of the Royal Jersey Golf Course.
Day ThreeOn today's fascinating included excursion you'll explore the Jersey War Tunnels. This huge and extraordinary subterranean complex was originally built to house the German Forces who occupied the island in World War Two, and now stands as a memorial to the cost of the invasion and war.
Day FourThe next optional excursion takes us to the fascinating Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, also known as Jersey Zoo. Learn about the work of its founder Gerald Durrell, whose mission was to create an organisation dedicated to saving species from extinction. Stroll along the lush green walkways where some animals roam freely, while others live in environments painstakingly created to mirror their natural habitats.
Day FiveSpend your final morning exploring Jersey’s south coast aboard the Jersey Duchess, soaking up the scenery from the water and listening to the fascinating on-board commentary. Along the way you'll see 16th-century Elizabeth Castle, St Aubin’s Bay, Noirmont Point and La Corbiere lighthouse. Keep an eye out for the local dolphins that occasionally follow the boat. This evening, why not head out into St Helier with some of your new-found friends to relive memories of the last few days?
