Despite its small size, Jersey offers a rich variety in terms of landscape, from rugged coastline to wooded valleys, fields and country lanes, making it popular with walkers of all ages.
Visit Jersey has compiled a number of downloadable Self-Guided Walks in Jersey which cover all corners of the island and have been designed to introduce visitors to Jersey's many moods, some of these are summarised below:
A moderately challenging and spectacular walk along Jersey's stunning north coast with its unique clifftop views of secluded bays and caves.
A short walk with unforgettable views which is suitable for families, perfect for getting a feel for what the north coast is all about.
An easy walk in one of Jersey's most iconic landscapes, linking two unmissable island landmarks.
Built in 1991, Jersey's newest reservoir attracts several species of waterfowl including mallard and tufted duck, coot and mute swan and is surrounded by sea campion, red campion, foxgloves and honeysuckle.
A strenuous walk that is worth the effort as it offers a wonderful mix of coast and countryside. For birdwatchers, you can observe wading birds roosting on the exposed reefs or scouring the tideline for food.
A combination of the quaint St Aubin's harbour village and Noirmont Point, a must for any occupation enthusiast, with a network of pathways which attract a host of unusual birds and rare plants.
The most ambitious walk on the island covers 48 miles and takes two or three days, depending on your level of fitness and enthusiasm. It offers the perfect introduction to Jersey as it incorporates heather-covered cliff paths, tranquil country lanes and rocky headlands.

Not for the faint-hearted, the round island walk can also be undertaken in one go for charity. An annual sponsored event, taking place on the nearest Saturday to the longest day in June. Covering the 48.1 miles in one go, walkers can expect to complete the walk in anything from 12 to 21 hours.
