Jersey is a very safe destination with exceptionally low crime rates.
Speed limits of 15mph on the 48 mile road network known as the Green Lanes make it ideal for cyclists.
The main concern is the tide. The island has one of the highest tides in the world, with unpredictable swells. Safety varies from beach to beach – check how safe your beach is for swimming, and never leave little ones unattended. Beaches are only guarded during the summer season, and some not at all.
All beaches pose a threat at high tide as the water rises quickly and sections of some bays can be cut off – so be sure to check the tide times before you visit.
On the other hand, Jersey has some of the cleanest beaches in Europe, and the quality is checked on a weekly basis during the summer months.
Certain attractions, such as the Corbière Lighthouse, can be reached on foot via causeways during low tide. However, there have been serious accidents when the tide has come in or the sea is rough – so check with guides or local information points before crossing.
