This island has got to be the sunniest place in the UK, and means that you can have a great time without travelling very far from the mainland for your flats to rent in the Jersey Channel Islands. It once formed part of the French mainland, having only broken away around 8,000 years ago. The native language of the region is Jèrriais which is a unique Norman-French mix, but now people speak mostly English. Many speak French, and you will even hear some languages such as Portuguese or Polish who make up some of the settlers. All in all, it is quite an international mix on this island. It is a unique destination with plenty of stunning options for Jersey holiday accommodation that you are sure to fall in love with. Due to the prevailing winds coming from the Gulf Stream, the climate is slightly warmer than you would expect. If you’re wondering where in the UK you can guarantee yourself sunshine, look no further! This is only a little island that measures 9 miles by 5 across, so you are never too far from visiting the bays that are worth exploring. We recommend that you find a holiday rental in Jersey that’s close to the coastal roads, and to try its incredible gastronomy overlooking the salty sea. Many people that choose to spend their holiday in Jersey also enjoy the likes of Guernsey and the Isle of Wight.

In general, the island is mild in its temperature, so in theory, there is no ‘inappropriate’ time to visit the island. Sometimes weather can unpredictable due to its island position, but the best time to witness the wildflowers in full bloom is in spring, and you can bathe in the sea from May onward. The perfect season to visit has got to be in September and October when crowds have died down and cheap accommodation is far easier to find than usual. It receives approximately 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, which is far higher than other destinations in the UK. Winter is cold and damp, but if you want to visit when it is quiet and you can take some fantastic photos, we recommend visiting during this period to also make the most of lower prices on holiday rentals.
