Jersey is perfect for a camping holiday with its warm temperatures, beautiful countryside and stunning beaches. The biggest of the Channel Islands, Jersey has over 40 miles of coastline which means that no beach is ever too far away. Its location as the most southerly point of the British Isles means it benefits from warmer temperatures all year round and makes sleeping under the stars that extra bit appealing. Whether you fancy an outdoor adventure pitching your own tent or prefer to book a luxurious glamping yurt, camping in Jersey Channel Islands couldn’t be easier.
Jersey has 5 major campsites across the island, each with their own unique charm and appeal. Whether you are looking for an adventurous getaway with activities included in your stay, or a relaxing escape to the great outdoors, you’ll find the perfect campsite for you.
