Les Ecréhous

Updated: Jun 30, 2022

Just six miles off the east coast of Jersey, Les Ecréhous is one of Jersey’s archipelagos and is home to a whole host of wildlife. The eagle-eyed will spot terns, oyster catchers, cormorants and curlews – as well as bottlenose dolphins and grey seals.

It’s also an area with rich history – the fishermen’s huts and islands that make up Les Ecréhous were named by the Vikings with a name that means ‘rocky islands’ in the Norse language. France is so close you’d be forgiven for thinking you might be on French soil. The islands are, however, part of Jersey.
