Stroll through St Peter Port

Head to St Peter Port, said to be the prettiest harbour towns in Europe, for some retail therapy. Guernsey's capital is still alive with independent shops, boutiques and gift shops, selling unique gifts for you or to take home. The town, which has won the coveted title of best coastal town in the RHS Britain in Bloom competition, is full of lovely cafes and restaurants so when you are done shopping you can settle in for a bite to eat and a spot of people watching.
If you want to learn more about the history of our capital take a self-guided audio tour or arrange to take a guided tour with one of the island's accredited guides.

Blow the cobwebs away with a clifftop stroll

Cliff Top Walk

The wild and spectacular coastline of Guernsey, and its neighbouring islands, provide the perfect antidote to the stresses and strains of modern day life.

Pull on some sturdy walking boots, leave your mobile phone behind and take a stroll around the cliff paths and along the beaches of our beautiful islands. Meander at your own pace, stopping off at one of the many cafes, kiosks and restaurants that cling to the clifftops and sink your toes into the sands to the west. Stop and admire the view at the plentiful benches along the routes, all positioned to make the most of your journey that lays ahead.

Need some inspiration? You'll find a selection of suggested walking routes for all abilities here.

 

Watch the sunset

Drive around the coast at sunset and you'll see both islanders and visitors pulling in to get their cameras out to try and snap the stunning colours. Throughout the summer, the west coast is the best place to capture the setting sun.

The surfing beach of Vazon Bay, voted Britain's Cleanest Beach in 2014 and neighbouring Cobo and Grandes Rocques Bays also offer a breath-taking backdrop to watch the sun set. Cobo Bay is famous for its fish and chip shop so why not grab a blanket and head to the beach for tea - it's one al fresco dinner where the views really are out of this world.

 

Hide Away on a Secluded Island

Sark Dark Sky

Whilst Guernsey often feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of real life, real romance seekers should consider a romantic night or two on one of the smaller islands, where it can feel like you're the only people in the world.

Herm is just 20 minutes away from St. Peter Port by boat, and truly offers a desert island feeling. The stylish White House Hotel offers a luxurious bolthole with comfortable rooms and fine dining, alternatively options for self-catering or camping are also available.

The car free island of Sark is just 45 minutes from Guernsey and the world's first designated Dark Sky Island. Pack a blanket and a telescope and spend a night exploring the solar system.

 

Share an Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

Part of the afternoon tea ritual is to over indulge in sweet delights and tantalizing savoury treats! Enjoy a cool glass of afternoon bubbly or a fragrant cup of tea, whilst enjoying the gorgeous surroundings offered by the many establishments that offer this favourite past time. Sweet indulgence can be enjoyed at one of the following establishments or any number of other establishments throughout the island:

 

Feel on top of the world

Victoria Tower was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s 1846 visit. Collect the key from the Guernsey Museum at Candie, which is just across the road, and climb to the top. Climb up and up the narrowing spiral staircase to the rooftop, which offers spectacular views across St Peter Port and out towards our sister islands.

The Tower was the secret meeting place of Victor Hugo and his mistress, Juliette Drouet. If you look closely you may be able to find the spot
where they carved their initials into the wall.

 

Once balance has been re-stored, it’s time to make the short journey back to the airport for your homeward flight, taking with you a wealth of sun-dappled memories that will last a lifetime, and a resolution to return soon.
