A Beautiful Island in the English Channel - It’s Guernsey
The second largest of the Channel Islands, Guernsey entices visitors with its beautiful beaches and 2,000 hours of annual sunshine. Stay for a while and you’ll realise that these sunny benefits are perfectly complemented by a delicious dining scene, a rich cultural backdrop, and, of course, Guernsey ice cream. Accommodation options in Guernsey range from modest yet friendly B&Bs to hotels to suit every budget. Choose your favourite digs and get ready to enjoy an island getaway.
Visitors are quite rightly enthralled by Guernsey’s capital, St Peter Port. Widely thought of as one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns, the capital’s cobbled streets benefit from colourful floral displays and whimsical bunting while the hilltop setting offers panoramic views of sister islands on the horizon. Kick off your experience in the capital by strolling down the High Street, where small independent boutiques and cosmopolitan cafes jostle for your attention. From there, you can visit Hauteville House, the former home of Les Miserables author Victor Hugo, or enjoy a trip to the Underground Museum and Aquarium. Be sure to leave time to watch the firing of the Noon Day Gun at the 800-year-old Castle Cornet.
Guernsey is a great place to be outdoors and there’s no better place to enjoy the sunshine than on one of the island’s 27 beaches. Havelet Bay on the south side is easily accessible from the St Peter Port town centre as is the pebbled Fermain Bay, a popular swimming beach. To the west lie beaches such as Vazon, which attracts the surfing community, and Portelet, where the pier and the abundance of bobbing fishing boats appeal to families. In the north, you can enjoy the seclusion of the horseshoe-shaped Port Grat or take the kids rock pooling at Port Soif. Highlights along the island’s southern shoreline include Petit Bot, La Jaonnet Bay and Moulin Huet, the latter often cited as the inspiration for some of Renoir’s paintings.
Steeped in history, Guernsey is the perfect place to discover the past. Be transported back to Neolithic times as you seek out ancient ruins such as Les Fouaillages, a burial mound thought to be Europe’s oldest man-made structure, uncover Barriere stones dating back to the middle ages, and explore historic harbours, famous in the 18th and 19th century as major trade stops and successful shipbuilding centres. Other historical highlights include the Guernsey Tapestry Gallery on St Peter Port’s College Street, a fascinating tapestry depicting 1,000 years of island life, and the roman shipwreck displayed at the Guernsey Pearl retail outlet. Be sure to look out for the granite plinths protruding from some of the island’s older houses and cottages; these are witch’s seats designed to prevent witches from slipping down into homes on their way home from dancing at Grande Greve.
It’s best to pack a hearty appetite when visiting Guernsey. This island squeezes plenty of flavour into its 25 square miles. You can satisfy your cravings at everything from beachside kiosks and casual cafes to fish and chip shops and fine dining restaurants along the waterfront. No matter where you choose to eat, there’s a focus on freshness here, particularly when it comes to sumptuous seafood such as chancre crabs. Die hard foodies will want to plan their trip around the Autumn season when the Tennerfest restaurant week and the Guernsey International Food Festival take pride of place on the event calendar. It may be a coincidence that Guernsey’s Autumn Walking Festival takes place around the same time but, nonetheless, it will help you burn off some of your indulgences.
Guernsey provides an excellent launchpad from which to explore nearby sister islands, most of which can be reached in under an hour of travel time. Alderney, the northernmost island, is a must visit for animal lovers; this pretty island is home to the rare blonde hedgehog and huge populations of northern gannets and Glanville Fritillary butterflies. The nearby car-free island of Sark is known for the dolphins that play near the coastline and horse and carriage rides. Plus, Sark was the world’s first island to be granted Dark Sky Status so budding astrologers may want to book a hotel on the island to enjoy a little stargazing. Bar a few tractors, Herm is also car-free and is the closest of Guernsey’s sister islands; here you can enjoy cliff top walks and admire the views of Jersey and France.
