  • The Jersey National Park provides residents and visitors with a unique opportunity to enjoy, preserve and take pride in a coastal environment steeped in history, rich in agricultural and natural diversity and bustling with activities that appeal to every interest and age group.

    Miles of unspoiled beaches and headlands, a number of excellent restaurants and eating places plus a wide choice of recreational activities constantly ensure boundless opportunities and untold benefits, all reached within minutes of each other.

    What is the Jersey National Park?

    The park currently encompasses some 1,900 hectares of fully protected coastline where people live, work and play. It is admired and enjoyed for its natural beauty, cultural heritage, charitable opportunities and environmental diversity of wildlife species. Additionally, its wide open spaces provide and promote true ‘spiritual wellbeing’ and countless moments of priceless inspiration for people of any age, ability or interest.

    Which areas are included?

    By far the largest ’park’ area is the entire sweep of St Ouen’s Bay on the west coast.

    Also well represented are the dramatic sea cliffs along the northern coastline, the designated east-coast areas of St Catherine and Grouville Bay together with four major maritime headlands along the south-facing coast.

    Also included are the three offshore reefs of Les Ecrehous, Les Minquiers and the Paternosters.

    Who formed the Jersey National Park?

    Following two years of public meetings and consultations, the concept of a Jersey National Park was finally endorsed by the States of Jersey in 2011.

    It is now firmly lodged within the Island Plan 2011 and affords rigid principals with regards to inappropriate coastal developments within the park boundaries.

    Developing the park to its current status is an Interim Working Group, a voluntary body that emerged in 2014 following three stakeholder workshops.

    What can you expect from the Jersey National Park?

    A fine balance of extremely attractive coastline dotted with a choice of excellent eating houses. While several sporting facilities are readily available, a beautiful working landscape affords miles of easily accessible footpaths. History is well represented: from ancient dolmens, impressive castles and towers to more recent fortifications from the years of German Occupation.

    How can I become involved?

    Once established, you may, perhaps, wish to become a ‘Friend of the National Park’ and by so doing, become more closely involved in events and in the evolving development of the park itself. In addition to receiving periodic e-newsletters, you may also wish to add your thoughts and offer contributions by way of comment and relevant National Park photographs.

    Jersey National Park extends over an area of approximately 30 miles (48km) of Jersey’s coastline, Les Ecréhous, Les Minquiers and Pierres De Lecq or Paternosters.
