Visiting Herm Island FROM GUERNSEY

Getting away from it all is almost impossible in today’s busy world but just off the coast of Guernsey, Herm offers absolute escapism in stunning surroundings. This island gem is definitely worth putting on your ‘places to visit’ list.

Just three miles from the Guernsey coast, its sister island Herm measures just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide. There are no cars, no crowds and no stress - just beautiful unspoiled beaches, sheltered coves, and a pretty coastline.

Many visitors come to Herm just for the day, taking the Herm ferry from St Peter Port, Guernsey, for the 20-minute trip across the Channel. For those who choose to stay, there’s island accommodation to suit all budgets, ranging from tents and pitches at The Seagull Campsite with picturesque views of Belvoir Bay, to comfortable cottages. Fisherman’s Cottage, one of the islands’ most sought after rentals is just 100 metres from Fisherman’s Beach. There’s also the award-winning White House Hotel, and with no televisions, clocks or telephones, it’s a world away from everyday life.
