The Largest Channel Island
A backpacking holiday in Jersey is a great adventure and an inexpensive way of exploring the island’s unspoilt beauty. Jersey is also an ideal starting point for backpackers to visit the nearby Channel Islands of Sark and Guernsey with its 100 miles of coastlines and cliff walks. Guernsey and Sark can easily be reached by ferries. Although there are no Youth Hostels currently on Jersey, there are numerous low cost guest houses and hotels that are in the price range for backpackers. Affordable accommodation for backpackers can be found in St. Helier, by the sandy beach of Grouville Bay or St. Brelade on the west coast of Jersey. The average rate per person per night ranges from £20 during low season to £27 in high season and will include breakfast.
