There is no better way to learn to know JERSEY that to walk, walk, walk....
There are marked routes, you can walk on the normal roads and country lanes, but there are also nice tours, longer or shorter, over coastal paths and narrow walkways, over the beach or over the rocks, along sloping meadows.
I would advise you to buy THE ORDONANCE MAP in which all foot paths can be found.
The AA/Ordonance Survey Leisure Guide of the CHANNEL ISLANDS contains 7 very interesting walks.
I love Mary Brydon-Philips' booklet called 'TRACKS AND TALES" which gives more detailed info in some 20 different coastal walks.
But you can also (with a little group) go for guided walks, which is always nice...
But...call for reservations: zie below....
Equipment: WELL WORN SHOES, wellingtons, a cane is always fine, especially for walking down slopes whether they are rocky, slippery or just fine!
For 35 P you can also bye the brochure about NORTH COAST FOOTPATH (Liberation Square, Jersey Tourism)
The Island has three 18 hole courses and three nine hole courses with some of the most stunning views.

Lots of golf courses on the island,reasonably priced,considering the myth surrounding the game,'expensive,only for the well off'.
Equipment: Bring your clubs and your windproof clothing,it can get a bit blustery,well that was my excuse for some dodgy shots !!!
If you fancy a dip away from the sea and your hotel doesn’t have a pool, there are some alternatives. There are two freshwater pools at Fort Regent, one national size and the other shallow for children and beginners. Les Quennevais Sports Centre also has two freshwater pools.
Or for a change try one of the open air seawater pools, with all the pleasures associated with lounging on the beach and the relative safety of an enclosed pool. There is a pool located at West Park close to the causeway leading to Elizabeth Castle, and another at Havre des Pas, which has recently undergone complete renovation.
Charter boats fish many off-shore marks including wrecks, reefs and sand banks for bass, rays, turbot, brill, black bream and conger eel, from April to October.

For an Island measuring nine miles by five Jersey offers visiting golfers a rich selection of courses.
The two 18-hole championship courses, La Moye and the Royal Jersey Golf Club, require proof of handicap but keen golfers who do not belong to a club are not left out, they can play at four other venues - Jersey Recreation Grounds, Les Mielles Golf and Country Club, Les Ormes Golf and Leisure Club and Wheatlands Golf Club.
Jersey has an impressive golf pedigree. Ted Ray and Harry Vardon, who won the British Open six times, were born and learned their golf in the Island. Jersey has also produced other well known players like Aubrey and Percy Boomer. Ian Woosnam is also resident in the island.
Equipment: Equipment can be hired for a fee - depending on which course you play at.
