  • Cobo Bay

    This large sandy beach is on the west coast of the island. It is a long expanse of fine sand and is a great place to spend the whole day as are some shops (great for beach toys), plus some fab places to eat.

  • Portelet Bay

    This sandy beach at the end of Rocquaine Bay has a small working fishing harbour. There are different things to do depending on where the tide is – jumping off the old jetty wall into the sea is popular with the older children. There are also plenty of rock pools for crabbing and clambering over. The stunning Pleinmont walk starts from this point, with the ‘Fairy Ring’ being only a short walk up the hill from the beach.

  • Petit Bot Bay

    Children love exploring the rock pools here and playing ball on the wide sandy stretch. Sheltered by the surrounding cliffs and overlooked by a Martello Tower, not only is Petit Bot is beautiful, but also amazing for swimming and kayaking.

  • Saumarez Park

    This is a lovely park, with different areas to visit, including the large duck pond, a good children’s playground, large open grass lawns, the Victorian walled kitchen garden, a café (with bouncy castle outside) and a path around the perimeter great for cycling, scootering or pushing a buggy. There is also a nice nature trail from the back car park, which leads down to Cobo bay.

  • Cambridge Park & Skatepark

    Adjacent to Beau Sejour Leisure Centre – it offers wide-open space with several playing fields, outdoor children’s play grounds and a skate park. The skatepark is of the latest design and one of the UK’s largest. It incorporates a multi bowl area, street course, mini ramp, grind rails and many technical features

  • Wild Food Foraging

    There is a two-hour family-orientated workshop, which looks at fire starting, cooking outside and foraging/eating wild food. Activities include wild food foraging, both inland and on the seashore, exploring with snorkels, swimming in beautiful places. Bushcraft workshops include learning fire by friction and crafting wooden spoons.

  • Guernsey Surf School
