Old-world charm, expansive beaches, and sand banks you can only reach when the tide is low, Jersey offers much to explore off the beaten track. It’s also home to photographer and film maker, Tom Webster. We’ve followed Tom (@tom_webster5) on Instagram for a while now, enjoying his ability to capture the magic of the island and taking note of new places to explore on our next trip.

We caught up with Tom to hear his top five places to explore and photograph in this off the beaten track guide to our sister island, Jersey.



1. St Ouen's Bay

This is the surf beach of Jersey; the community is great down there. People will often park up in the morning and surf throughout the day, have a BBQ for dinner and leave well after sunset. This is by far my favourite place to spend time in Jersey.

2. Minquiers

These sand banks are located South of Jersey in the middle of the sea. They are unique as they can only be reached at a low tide. The beauty in the images speak for themselves.


 3. Beauport Beach

This tranquil beach could be anywhere in the world. The water is crystal clear, it could be mistaken for the Maldives. Easily my favourite beach for prettiness.

 4. Les Ecrehous

These tiny little islands have always fascinated me. I've always wondered what it'd be like to live in one of those houses. The transformation of this place is incredible between low and high tide.

 5. Gorey Castle

This unique castle is located on the East of the island and is a spectacular visit. It overlooks Gorey harbour and the peaceful village which lies underneath.
