St Mary is the parish with the smallest population although it is not the smallest in size. It is also among the most northern of Jersey’s parishes, features vineyards (see The Jersey Lavender Farm La Mare Wine Estate) and is a rural farming community.
There are plenty of tourist attractions in St Mary. The famous Devil’s Hole – a large crater on cliffs, is a natural beauty, whilst St Mary is home to the island’s most popular beach – Grève de Lecq beach. The Elms is a good example of Jersey architecture and is situated at the St Mary’s end of St Peter’s Valley, and also houses the headquarters of the National Trust for Jersey. St Mary also has a section of the North Coast path with excellent views across to the other Channel Islands. Below is a list of attractions:
