Island Hop

Be ready to hop into an unforgettable experience in Guernsey’s Bailiwick Islands. Why limit yourself to just one destination when you can Island hop onto them all! As well as the charm of Guernsey, experience Herm’s stunning scenery and untainted white sandy beaches. Or get around Sark by horseback, bicycle or horse-drawn carriage and take advantage of the superb stargazing night skies.  Or check out Alderney’s striking landscape, with rolling country hills and abundant wildlife. 

 

Explore outdoors

In the spirit of exploration, we’ve hidden three of our own boxes around Guernsey that contain prizes and treats! See if you can find each of them with the descriptions below. Remember to put them back as you found them for the game to continue! GOOD LUCK! You can find out more about Geocaching in Guernsey here.

 

On your Bike

Cycling in Guernsey gives visitors and locals a unique perspective of this beautiful island. Tours with Donkey’s Days Out can reach parts of the island that a coach or car tour couldn’t, and they can cover an area that a walking tour would take too long to do.

The tours offered are energetic, fun and informative. Cycling allows you to get close to nature in an environmentally friendly way and enjoy the sights are sounds of the countryside and seaside. You will learn more about Guernsey’s historic sites, as well as the people and the events that have shaped this island over its long and interesting history.

 

Seaside sensation

Sandy skin and salty hair personifies a beach holiday, and there’s no better place to hit the beach than the Channel Islands. This beach epitomises the word suntrap and is sheltered by the steep cliffs that enclose it, Plémont Bay is a true spectacle! Though a brief walk and down a steep set of steps, this beach is well worth it. Rarely crowded, there is breathtaking scenery including water of rich turquoise which is ideal for swimming in low tide. The rock pools and sea caves add to this beach’s individuality, and an excellent cafe situated atop the cliffs.
