A short break to Guernsey this half-term is the ideal family escape for the family. The islands will feel like a trip abroad despite travellers never leaving the British Isles and with such a short journey time (either by flight or ferry) it’s the ideal destination for a short break – plus regardless of vaccination status, UK travellers can visit with no testing or isolation requirements either on arrival to Guernsey or on return to the UK - no confusing paperwork or additional costs, perfect!
Kayaking and paddleboarding are firm favourites at this time of year along with surfing as the waters reach their warmest temperatures in October. Families can join the Guernsey Surf School and tackle the waves together in entertaining group lessons. Outdoor Guernsey also runs sessions each day during half term letting youngsters try their hand at water sports and climbing. With great teachers, children are guaranteed to have an amazing time.
Travellers visiting during the half term period and up to November 12th will also get to enjoy the delights of Tennerfest! Each year, local chefs from the island’s hotels, pubs and restaurants gear up for a phenomenal six week showcase of the best of their cuisine and local produce available in Guernsey. Menus are fixed from 3 courses for £10 per head to £12.50, £15, £17.50 and £20 – meaning it’s not only an inexpensive way of feeding the family on holiday but will also get the kids trying new and exciting foods!
