Beaches of Guernsey

Guernsey almost has one beach for every square mile, each one beautiful and special. Discover rocky coves in the south, long sandy beaches on the west coast - where the sun sets into the Atlantic Ocean - and horseshoe bays in the north. Cobo Bay, with its wide sandy shores and stunning sunsets, is a favorite for families and water sports enthusiasts. Shell Beach, on the tiny island of Herm just a short ferry ride away, offers crystal-clear waters and seclusion. Petit Bot Bay, with its rugged cliffs and tidal pools, is a picturesque spot for exploration. Fermain Bay's clear waters and nearby cafes make it an ideal choice for relaxation. Whether you seek tranquility or adventure, Guernsey's beaches provide a captivating seaside experience for all tastes and preferences.
