A solo island adventure in Jersey
For up-to-date advice on travel and COVID-19, see our homepage.
Even though it's only nine miles long, Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. From the rugged cliffs of the north to the long beaches of the south and west, it's a beautiful island with a fascinating history - plus it's only a short flight from the UK.
On this five-day break you'll have plenty of time to explore on your own, then enjoy an included full-day tour of the island's highlights. You'll be based at the three-star Merton Hotel in St Saviour, with plenty of restaurants to choose from and dinner included each evening. You'll travel in a small group of other Prima readers and, with no single supplement to pay, it's a great opportunity to be independent and make new friends along the way.
