What do you want from your next holiday? White sands and turquoise waters? Secluded beaches and fine dining? Your dream holiday could be a lot closer than you think! Guernsey is just a 45-minute flight from London (similar from other regional airports around the UK) and will surprise you with what it has to offer.
Here are five photos of Guernsey that you could easily mistake for a holiday destination further afield!
1. Shell Beach, Herm – White Sands
You don’t need a 10-hour flight to find turquoise waters and white sands. Guernsey and its sister islands have a host of white sandy beaches. Shell Beach on Herm, with its long stretch of pure white sand, looks like it's been transported directly from the Caribbean itself.
2. St. Peter Port, Guernsey - Al Fresco Dining
This Italian phrase isn’t reserved for Italian holidays; Guernsey has plenty of al fresco dining spots to enjoy including in St. Peter Port, the Islands capital.
3. Guernsey’s International Food Festival - World Class Local Produce
All year around, Guernsey is a food lover’s paradise with local seafood and an abundance of local farm produce. The Guernsey International Food Festival is a fantastic yearly event that is a must do experience for any foodie.
4. Venus Pool, Lihou Island – Rock Pools
Sydney is famous for its swimming rock pools, but you don’t have to trek down under to find a tidal pool big enough to swim in. The Venus Pool on Lihou Island can be found at low tide, perfect for ‘wild swimming’.
5. Alderney - Secluded Beaches
Think you need to travel far and off the beaten track to find an un-crowded beach? The Bailiwick of Guernsey has 27 beaches to choose from, meaning even on a sunny day the beach is rarely crowded.
