Searching for a new Summer Holiday destination where we could bring The Dog along, we decided upon Jersey. Dogs are allowed on the beaches (on leads) and you can take dogs on the ferry.We all had the most fun exploring all the different beaches and sampling the tasty food, exploring the attractions and even trying our hand at surfing.
Campsites and hotels will have guides to hand about attractions to visit and events on. We found this book also very useful: Berlitz Pocket Guide To Jersey
There are many kinds of accommodation available in Jersey - Hotels, apartments, campsites, short term rentals.... We stayed at the wonderful Rozel Campsite. If you fancy something a little more unusual, the Jersey Heritage Properties are worth a look!
TRAVELLING TO JERSEY WITH THE DOG
My initial joy at finding somewhere we could go on holiday to with our dog soon led to anxiety over the ferry crossing - would The Dog be OK...googling didn't help much, stories about too hot ferry crossings made me have sleepless night s and invest in all sorts of fans / cooling pads etc. but it was all absolutely fine.. Journey To Jersey
There are only a handful of campsites in Jersey and the one we had picked was Rozel Campsite. Located near Rozel Harbour in the top right of the island, it looked like a very nice campsite online with lots of nice facilities and a swimming pool. It took about 20 minutes to reach from the ferry terminal down some at times very narrow roads. Upon arrival we were thrilled, we had definitely chosen a great place to stay! Rozel Campsite
WALK TO ROZEL HARBOUR
The Dog couldn't believe her potential luck - she does like chasing squirrels...what a wonderful walk through the green lane to Rozel Harbour - passing lots of interesting buildings and a through a micro climate full of horticultural delights. (no squirrels to be seen though..) Walk To Rozel Harbour
This was one of our favourite places. A lovely walk there, lots of stones to skim on the beach, lots of rockpools to explore. Paddling / swimming opportunities if you fancies it and a choice of cafes and a pub. The Hungry Man on the harbour is a popular spot, selling great sandwiches, burgers and ice-creams. With a bus stop just near the harbour, (dogs allowed on) we could get the bus back up the hill back to our campsite: Rozel Harbour
ST OUEN'S BAY
This was one of our favourite beaches. Such a wide expanse of glorious sand and crystal clear, gradually shelving water with some excellent surfing opportunities and eating opportunities. Surf boards and body boards and available for hire. What a great way to spend the day, great beach, good exercise, good food, good fun: St Ouen's Bay
