Whether you love being outdoors and exploring, or a family that enjoys relaxation and a slower pace of life- Jersey is home to a fantastic selection of enjoyable family orientated establishments, providing something to suit everyone.
During those summer months, our Mediterranean type climate makes it hard not to want to be outside. There are plenty of activities which are brilliant and free! Some to mention are exploring the sand dunes in the West of the island, taking a bike ride along the cycle track which runs from St Helier to Corbiere, rock pooling at low tide at Green Island beach and woodland explorations in St Catherine’s Woods.
Whatever the season head to ‘aMaizin Adventure Park’. Located in St Peter, it is a must for families and children of all ages. There is an entrance fee for each individual, but once inside you have access to all indoor and outdoor activities, including crazy golf, tabogganing and giant pillow jumping. To top it all off, there is an interactive farm where you can feed animals such as goats, rabbits and lambs.
Jersey zoo, now formally known as ‘Durrell’, will leave the whole family feeling refreshed & inspired. Home to some of the rarest species on the planet, it has many interactive and educational elements such as a recently installed walk through butterfly sanctuary, an indoor play park, sandpits and plenty of ‘keeper talks’ throughout the day.
New to the island is ‘Jump Jersey’ found at Les Ormes Resort. The islands biggest indoor activity centre, it is perfect for those cooler days. With a trampoline park, climbing walls and soft play zone, it is ideal for those who seek some adrenaline fuelled fun.
Finally, there are a number of public swimming pools to enjoy, Aquasplash and Les Quennevais being the most popular. If you prefer more natural surroundings, head to Harve Des Par outdoor pool which has a great atmosphere in the early evenings as families congregate to cool off in the sunshine!
