Jersey Tourism Spring Walking Week

Posted on: May 14th, 2012 by Andrew Syvret

Just a note to flag up three walks that we’re sure are going to be good ones:

Friday 18th May ~ Green Street to Gorey ~ visit the beaches of five different parishes on an ebbing tide wander through the upper reaches of the Channel Island’s first Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. From Havre des Pas, original site of the celebrated Jersey Marine Biological Station, stroll through Le Dicq and Grève d’Azette – favourite haunts of Victor Hugo. Next, you’ll discover Green Island, Le Hocq and La Rocque, each with its own fascinating history, before heading round the south eastern corner of the Island to traverse the wide, rich sands of the Royal Bay of Grouville. The final part of the journey brings you to Mont Orgueil Castle, overlooking picturesque Gorey Harbour. Leaving at 09h30, for the very first time.

Saturday 19th May ~ La Corbière Corner ~ if you’re curious about Jersey’s marine environment but only have 90 minutes to spare and don’t fancy getting your feet wet, this is the one for you. Simple stroll, lots to see and learn. Just a fiver! (11h00 start)

Sunday 20th May ~ Moonwalk to Seymour Tower ~ enjoy the Island’s most famous low tide ramble with the guide who dreamt it all up. (11h30m start) An extra outing, by request.


We can’t promise you dolphins, but we can guarantee your interest. Please call/text Andrew on 07797718472 or email: for more details…

I’m no plant expert, but believe this beautiful specimen to be a green-winged or green-veined orchid (Anacamptis morio or Orchis morio). Seen this morning on Les Blanches Banques, St Ouen’s Bay. (Phone pic.) If it isn’t, I’d be pleased to be corrected…
