Guernsey’s Twin Island Breaks: Herm

Herm IslandA 20 minute ferry transfer is all it takes to reach Herm from St Peter Port in Guernsey. The island is a visual treat with sandy beaches in the north and lush countryside in the south. Tiny in size but big in character… Herm’s natural beauty is an absolute given and the lovely buzz one senses from it makes it irresistible.

Local people are known as Hermites but the island seems to constantly re-invent itself, enabling visitors and locals alike to always enjoy life on these shores.

Staying on Herm

Herm has a few self-catering cottages, a campsite and famously one hotel – The White House Hotel – with no television to spoil your stay, but possibly the best seafood in the Channel Islands. The hotel’s setting on the island’s harbour is absolutely idyllic and with beautiful gardens to stroll through, the whole experience will be one of peace and quiet.

Herm in Bloom

Herm is made for walking, relaxing and appreciating how such a small community manages to combine the economic demands of modern life without compromising their environment.

During 2013, the island will be taking part in the Britain in Bloom competition for the fourth year running. Will they get a 4th gold medal? You can keep an eye on their progress by following their active Twitter page.

A true gem, Herm offers an unmissable experience and a complete understanding of the special way of life we all cherish here in the Channel Islands. Afterall, your holiday is our home!
