aMaizin! Maze ? 9
The theme for the aMaizin! Maze this year is ancient civilizations and as always will not disappoint. New attractions include the mini maze, where you only have to find 5 clues which is ideal for young ones, and the dino dig where you can hunt for dinosaurs and become an archaeologist for the day. Although many of the activities are aimed at children and families, it really does have something for everyone and is a great place for the ?young at heart? to spend a day.
Les Mielles ? 12A
What was once a simple golf course now has so much more to offer. The Segway rally is a fantastic activity for competitive groups or those just after something a bit different. And the laser clay pigeon shooting and miniature golf course are two activities that should not be missed this summer. And after all that, what better way to recuperate than to head to Rocco?s restaurant which, with its stunning views over St Ouen?s Bay has gained a superb reputation for wonderful food and a relaxed atmosphere.

The Lavender Farm is one of the most enjoyable, relaxing and educational ways to spend a couple of hours in Jersey. Unwind in peaceful, tranquil gardens and savour the stunning sights of lavender rows blooming in shades of blue, indigo and purple in the 9 acres of fields. You can also feed the chickens and doves that coo and cluck lazily around the place. A little known perk of the Lavender Farm is its lovely café that does an amazing breakfast – the perfect way to start the day. Don?t forget to stock up on presents for friends and pampering goodies for yourself in their little shop!

Durrell is one of the must-sees of Jersey. All islanders feel they should go more often and all tourists push it to the top of their to-do lists, and so they should. Durrell, although like a zoo is actually a conservation centre that breeds endangered species and works with places like Madagascar to educate people on the importance of bio-diversity. With animals and birds like gorillas, flamingos and orangutans it really is a top attraction.

Excellent service and outstanding quality has been the brand?s ethos for the past 50 years since the family company was first established.

And if that?s not enough reason to visit, then the food is truly fantastic, be it a quick sandwich or a three-course meal.
