When you only have a few days to spend in your holiday destination, you want to be sure you stay somewhere that promises entertainment from the time you wake up to the time you finally return to your bed. If you have planned short breaks in Jersey, you are in for a treat.
There are so many attractions to experience here you can easily fill every minute of your break. From the golden sandy beaches where you can master wind surfing or water skiing, to the boutique shops and gourmet restaurants where you can spoil yourself in the evening, there are plenty of great things to do in Jersey.
The nightlife is no exception, so if you consider yourself something of a night owl you will not be disappointed. Whatever your tastes, you will find something to entertain you once the sun goes down .
La Cala in the capital of St Helier is a restaurant, bar and nightclub all rolled into one, so you can kick off your evening with a delicious meal, wash it down with a few cocktails - which you can drink on the glamorous roof terrace - and then party the rest of the night away, dancing to tracks laid down by the best DJs in the island.
Also in the town is Mimosa - a bar with an extensive wine, cocktail and champagne menu - making it the perfect place to come if you fancy spending a sophisticated evening sipping a chilled drink with your friends or partner.
Next door is the Fox and Firkin, which is a more traditional pub and has a laidback vibe to match. You can order a pint of real ale here and enjoy the views across the harbour.
If you're desperate to dance until dawn, make your way to Platinum, one of the biggest and best clubs on the island. Each night has a different theme, ranging from chart pop to Ibiza dance - but keep in mind that the dress code is smart-casual and no trainers are allowed.
However, if alternative music is more your thing you may feel more at home at the Live Lounge, which is one of the best live music venues in Jersey. Whether you want to catch a band or listen to rock, goth and punk you will be able to do so.
Another live music venue in the city is Chambers - and on some nights you can also catch stand-up comedy here, for something a little different. However, if you prefer the sound of your own voice, head over for one of the karaoke evenings.
Along with nightclubs, there are plenty of other great places to be in Jersey once the sun sets.
There's live music to enjoy every night of the week apart from Sundays at the Blue Note Bar in St Helier, while Roberto's Jazz Bar at The Savoy is particularly glamorous.
Alternatively, you could catch a show at one of the island's theatres, or the Jersey Opera House, which stages ballets, musicals, pantomimes and dramas. You could also head to the cinema one evening, and if you're visiting between August 11th and 17th, you'll be able to enjoy one of the premier Jersey tourism events of the year - the island's film festival.
So, for a holiday that promises to be action-packed from dusk until dawn, book your break in the Channel Islands today.
