Guernsey Off The Beaten Path

  • Walk along the cliff paths to Fermain...

    Fermain Bay is one of the most picturesque beaches on the island. As with a few places in Guernsey you can drive there but its easier to walk so a really interesting walk is to go from St. Peter Port town along the Esplanade past the bathing pools and up to Fort Grey, a garrison that dates around the 13th Century. You will also pass some old WW1...

  • Boat trips

    A boat trip across to Herm & Sark. Not the best boats to travel in but it was worth the experience to see the the islands. Shell beach is a nice place to chill out away from the crowds just to escape alone.
