Lihou Island

Check the tides, pack your sandwiches and trek across the winding, cobbled causeway, exposed only at low tide which, in itself, presents a unique opportunity to explore the interesting wildlife, both above the water and below.

10 years ago, Lihou and the nearby L'Eree headland were designated as Guernsey's first RAMSAR wetland site and the marine reserve is now home to more than 200 species of seaweed and 150 species of bird. 

Once on Lihou, take the pub to the left of the house (which was shelled during the German Occupation of the Channel Islands during WW2 and now offers group accommodation).  A couple of minutes down the path you'll find a ruined priory, head to the end of the Island and you'll reach the famous Venus Pool.

Stick to the shoreline if you want to see the best of the wildlife which has made this tiny place their Island home. You'll have just enough time for a bit of rockpooling - but be sure to get back across the causeway before time runs out and the tide cuts the Island off once again!

Don't leave without....

Not for the fainthearted, this natural rock pool is deep enough to jump in
