Also known as the flower island, the largest of the Channel Islands (118,2 km2 for 97 857 inhabitants), offers an extraordinary variety of landscapes: beaches, coastal paths, charming villages. The island is a British Crown Dependency represented by a Lieutenant Governor. The Bailiwick of Jersey includes the island of Jersey, two groups of small islands “les Écréhou” and “les Minquiers” and other uninhabited rocks. For a short break or a longer holiday, Jersey promises a very relaxing stay.

Services between La Manche and Channel Island

Only a few miles from one another, the Channel Islands and la Manche are close geographically and also share historical, touristic, economic and cultural ties. Manche Iles Express and the Conseil Général of la Manche are keen to perpetuate the historical sea links, thus developing tourist, cultural and commercial exchanges with our British “cousins”. Regular crossings to the Channel Islands depart from Granville, Barneville-Carteret and Diélette.

Depending on weather conditions, the company reserves the right to cancel crossings. During the lower season, crossings are operated only at weekends and are dependent on tides.
