Staycay with family

Make your island proud.

The model family, we salute your sacrifice. Gritting your teeth through fresh produce in an award-winning restaurant, joylessly sliding down the Merton flume. Your little troopers slaving over sand-castles in the hot sun as Mum checks into a sea-facing suite for a steamy soak in the bath. It must be pure torture. Here’s a few tips on how your family can face a few nights on staycation...


You’ve earned a break.

We almost feel sorry for your little ones, scaling the steep steps for their umpteenth thrill-ride on the flume at the Merton Aquadome. Good job there’s live music and comedy acts to keep kids and grown-ups entertained. Feel like you’re in the South of France in St. Brelade's Bay at the family-friendly Golden Sands or St. Brelade's Bay Hotel, where the kids can play safely on the soft sands as Mum and Dad get some ‘just us time’. If you want to embrace the great outdoors, pitch up at Beuvelande Campsite, where the little ones can pretend they’re on a bear hunt and sleep under the stars.

Try these family-friendly restaurants.

Your poor souls are spoilt for choice with family-friendly restaurants in Jersey. Breathe in the sea air at Portelet Bay Café, where Mum and Dad can enjoy a wood-fired pizza while the little ones play on the beach. Or fill your boots in the rustic surroundings of Moulin de Lecq as the kids go wild in the woodland playground. Or for something completely different, enjoy a hunger-stopping burger and an epic ping pong tournament at JB’s - kids vs grown-ups. Just not necessarily in that order.

With these action-packed adventures.

Discover what you’re made of and ramp up the adrenaline with a host of fun, safe and exciting activities. Stay at Les Ormes where the little ones can blow off steam in the soft play area or try their hands at pottery and painting, while Mum and Dad enjoy a dip in the pool or round of nine holes in the beautiful grounds. If you’re aiming for something more epic, the kids will love abseiling down the sheer face of Mont Orgueil, or a thrilling inflatable ring ride with Absolute Adventures. Or sharpen your survival skills together on a bushcraft course with Wild Adventures.

With beach family fun.

Sand, it gets everywhere doesn’t it? But if you must head to the coast, Jersey is circled with miles of beautiful, uninterrupted shoreline for you and your family to discover. For an activity that truly blows, you could try Blokarting with Absolute Adventures, a bracing day of adventure for young and old. Or treat the kids to the most scrumptious hot chocolate in the British Isles at the Hungry Man, where they can play on the soft sand at low tide as the grown-ups watch the boats bob gently in the harbour. And if that doesn’t satisfy your sweet tooth, stick a flake in it with these top spots to enjoy a Jersey ice cream...

Explore our heritage.

We know you’re a cultured lot. That’s why staying in the heart of Jersey’s countryside amongst meadows and orchards in the Cider Barn at Hamptonne appeals. But only for educational reasons. You’re the type of family who follows their nose to La Mare Vineyards where you nod your head soberly as you learn about Jersey’s viticulture. (Nothing to do with the wine tasting and chocolate!). Or rides the puddle duck to Elizabeth Castle in sober reflection about Jersey’s 18th century past, oblivious to the James Bond music blaring. You’re probably far too grown up to try on the medieval fancy dress costumes at Mont Orgueil, or have a knightly duel with wooden swords. Far too grown up...
