Planning a family holiday in Jersey

Island breaks to keep everyone happy


Drift into a world of family island adventures in Jersey where your days can be spent paddling in beach rock pools, to meeting rare and endangered wildlife at Jersey Zoo. Small-sized, the island’s perfect for small legs to explore. And the good thing about Jersey being famous for its cows… is the Jersey ice-cream you’ll find everywhere. Get inspired for Jersey family holiday adventures with our day-to-day planning guide to family holidays in Jersey.


Beach days

Rediscover the magic of days spent on the beach and take their imagination on a voyage of sandcastles and submerged rock pool worlds to explore. Jersey’s beaches range from wide sandy bays to pebble coves - take your pick from the island’s 45 miles of coastline. Become a tide expert and make the most of the falling tide as it uncovers new landscapes and shallow, safe paddling. Find your inspiration in our guide to Jersey beaches. 

Jersey's beach guide

Adventure days

When you’re tired of the beach, swap the sand for some inland activities to keep everyone entertained. Jersey’s small size means that you can pack your days with new discoveries - but definitely no long car journeys! Try exploring Jersey Zoo, the world-renowned conservation centre where you’ll meet gorillas, orangutans and meerkats. If that’s not quite active enough then try Jersey's newest attraction, fun for the whole family at Jump Jersey, with 40 trampoline beds, 17 climbing walls, Ninja Warrior, Total Wipeout and much more. Why not plan to spend a day at the award-winning Amazin! Adventure Park with heaps of all-weather activities including giant slides, minigolf, tractor rides and indoor and outdoor play zones.


History days

And after the sandcastles, why not try some real castle exploration? Jersey’s exciting past is all within easy reach, so whether you’re dressing up as a knight to taste mediaeval life at Mont Orgueil Castle with its stocks and turrets to explore, or taking the amphibious Castle Ferry out to Elizabeth Castle to see the cannons, or being transported to the island’s occupation years with multimedia experiences at Jersey War Tunnels, or the prehistoric world of La Hougue Bie, you’ve got plenty to engage young history fans.
