Escapade at Devil’s hole

Hi there, here is a post (or rather photos) that I hope will amazed you and make you want to visit my island of Jersey one day! Two weeks ago I did a little hike of about 2 hours (well we stopped very often with my Irish friend Sarah to take lots of pictures obviously) around Devil’s hole. Why this name? There are different theories: the sound of waves, or the story says that the figurehead of a French ship called “La Josephine” was discovered in the crater following its wreck.

This one-of-a-kind place is located on the north of Jersey Channel Islands, and is easy to reach either by bus (number 7 from St Helier) or by car, and there you can park at the Inn’s parking lot or on the one above. Once at the Inn you can either take the way down the Inn and will arrive near the devil, or take the stairs behind the Inn.

We did a bit of both, starting from the top to admire the view of the cliffs (just a little tip: don’t take the first door you see, but the second one is a little higher up on the right, then the view you’ll have will be even better), then we took the cliff path that goes down to the right when facing the cliffs to go East. And we ended up taking the path that goes down to the famous crater, being careful not to disturb the devil too much (yes a statue of him is watching us). Unfortunately (or fortunately, as it gives a good excuse to go back) it was low tide so the turquoise water was out of the crater leaving us with the pebbles, but hey, the view is worth the detour, right?
