Picturesque Guernsey is part of the Channel Islands, which include the islands of Herm, Sark and Alderney. Just off the French coast Guernsey covers just twenty-five square miles of land. Guernsey is not part of the United Kingdom but it does have a very British feel to it.

The coastline has been drawing visitors for decades, as it is full of coves and bays.

On the southern coastline spectacular cliffs plunge into the sea. This island has one of the largest tidal movements anywhere on earth and during low tide large beaches and strange rock pools are revealed.

In Guernsey you can abseil, rock climb, windsurf, swim or take long cliff top walks.


The capital, St Peter Port, is a very pretty little harbour, overlooked by an eight hundred year old fortress.
