Jersey is a fantastic destination for families and we are repeating this destination due to its never ending popularity! Jersey is the most southerly Island of the British Isles and the Met Office often rates Jersey as the sunniest place in the British Isles. Its beaches are wonderful. On Jersey they range from vast, surf-pounded strands to golden coves tucked under heather-covered cliffs.
Jersey beaches are wonderful. There are golden sandy beaches to suit all tastes. For those who want to try surfing, St. Ouen's is a four mile stretch of beach on the Atlantic coast, where you can have lessons and kit is available for hire. Or you might prefer body boarding, which is a bit easier. St Brelades is a family-orientated beach, with its gently shelving sweep of sand backed by hotels, cafes and bucket-and-spade shops. If you like walking, there's a footpath to follow along the cliffs of the little-developed north coast.
The island has lots of fun places to visit for children of all ages. Top of the bill is Jersey Zoo, which aims to save animals from extinction (and therefore appeals to many who don't usually approve of zoos). Elizabeth Castle is fun to visit due to its unique location. Walk across the causeway at low tide or catch the amphibious ferry. There's the Maize Maze - a children's adventure park, Aquasplash Leisure Pool in St Helier, Living Legends, where we can play mini-golf and try go-karting as well as many other attractions. We can take the tourist train to St Aubins or the more energetic can hire bikes and cycle there. In St Helier there is a Jersey Museum and a Marine Museum. From Chuckle Brother Bickers we can hire two or four seater bikes and ride along the prom.
The hotel provides a courtesy bus into St Helier where we can go to the beach and organise beach games. There are also many beaches on the island that can be easily reached, and there is also the opportunity to take a boat trip to France which is only 14 miles away. This can be arranged through the Mango co-ordinator.
I thought I would just drop you an email to let you know that myself and my son, Sam had a great time in Jersey. We both made lots of friends and even though the other kids were older than Sam they were absolutely fantastic with him. He loved all the attention and he did not really want to come home. He also had a lovely birthday.
I would like to add that Linda the co-ordinator was absolutely brilliant and her son, Daniel is now Sam's new best friend. He was a treasure and we are hoping to keep in touch with Linda and Daniel. We will most probably come to the Christmas Party in November.
Thanks very much for everything and I hope to see you soon.
