About Lihou Island
A quarter of a mile off the west coast of Guernsey, Lihou island is a small heaven of peace and beauty, only accessible by foot for two weeks a month when the causeway is uncovered.
Lihou Island hosts many nesting birds and a rich marine life can be observed on its shores as the tide goes down.

Visitors must keep within the designated areas to avoid disturbing the wildlife.
