Taking place throughout the year, Tasty Walks is a series of 11 self-guided walks that showcase Guernsey at its best. From rambling over the island's cliffpaths to exploring the charming streets of St. Peter Port, Guernsey has so much to offer in its small yet diverse 25 square miles.
Tasty Walks are designed with all walkers in mind. Whether you have years of hiking experience or would prefer a simple stroll around the lanes, there's something for everyone. You'll find each journey punctuated with some of the island's finest restaurants, cafes and beach kiosks, offering a quick snack or full relaxing meal to give you a real taste of Guernsey.
Each walk is supported by an audio guide, voiced by TV personality James Strawbridge, a full audio transcript and interactive map that highlights all the points of interest along the way.
Seafront, bombings and historic gardens
Explore the waterfront marina and streets of St. Peter Port as you meander through Guernsey's capital. Along the way you'll discover historic gardens, sites of WWII bombings, and plenty of quiet cafes and restaurants for a pit stop.
Witches, castles and famous French writers
A moderately challenging walk, this route guides you up and down the streets of St. Peter Port as you discover Castle Cornet, cobbled streets, the residence of Victor Hugo, historical accessions of witchcraft, and plenty or opportunities for a drink or local delicacy.
Secret coves, rugged cliffs and Renoir's bay
Separated into seven stages, this is the longest of the Tasty Walks. The full route starts in St. Peter Port, climbing onto the south-east cliff paths and then winding its way through fishing harbours, over isolated bays and around war-time occupation monuments.
Forts, shipwrecks and ancient settlements
