Why are Jersey Oysters so special

The coastline of Jersey offers infinite variety majestic cliffs, exposed bays, sandy beaches and rocky coves all easily accessible by road or on foot. At each low water the Island doubles in size (the third largest tidal range in the world).

 

All our oysters benefit directly from the daily natural filtering effect of our unique tide and crystal clear water. All of our oysters are harvested from the Royal Bay of Grouville. Facing the Normandy coast, this is an ideal place to see the incoming tide rushing through the gullies. The historic Seymour tower stands alone against this daily influx of some of the cleanest sea water in Europe. In 2010 fifteen of Jerseys beaches were included in the Marine Conservation Society's good beach guide, with the Royal Bay of Grouville attaining the highest standard classification (MSC Recommended).

 

Long before environmental protection became fashionable Jersey worked hard to maintain its natural beauty and in 1997 became the first island to gain Green Globe status. This outstanding natural environment provides a perfect opportunity to produce some of the most stunning natural produce in Europe.
