Valley of the Butterflies

In a short distance away from Parikia is the Valley of the Butterflies, a lush green oasis with a source from which cool water springs up. If you take a closer look you will notice that it is an environment comprising a biotope for butterflies, especially the ones belonging to the Jersey Tiger Moth species.

It is better to visit the Valley between May and July, if you want to be able to see them and admire their unique colours. Seeing them in August is difficult, as they leave the Valley in order to lay their eggs elsewhere, and start the breeding process.

If your children join you for holidays, they will surely be excited!
