A Perfect Summer's Day in Guernsey

With a wide range of beautiful scenery, fun activities and delicious food, there is something for everyone on a summer's day in Guernsey.

There’s no better way to begin a day of exploration than with breakfast to set you up for the day ahead. The cobbled streets of St Peter Port are adorned with trendy cafés offering continental and British favourites to start your day the right way. Our handy guide to eating out in Guernsey can help you pick out a perfect breakfast spot.

After enjoying good food, service and surroundings, head south on a leisurely cliff walk. The walk from Havelet to Fermain Bay will take a little over an hour, but the stunning scenery will make it flash by. At the beginning of the walk you will pass Clarence Battery, constructed in 1780 as one of the original outer defences of Fort George. Carrying on along the path and up the steps, take in the unforgettable views across dramatic cliffs, secret coves and clear waters.

Once Fermain Bay is reached, take a break and enjoy the views. Grab a drink at the beach café, sit back and relax, or go for a swim.

The buses in Guernsey are a quick, easy and reliable way to travel around the island, with convenient routes making it simple to get anywhere. Head up the hill from Fermain and catch the number 91 bus. This will take you through the rural south and west of Guernsey, with stunning scenery keeping you occupied throughout the journey.

The route passes a whole host of popular attractions including the Occupation Museum, the Fairy Ring and Fort Grey. Vazon Bay on Guernsey’s west coast is a great place to spend a sunny afternoon. The sandy beach is a favourite among sunbathers, while Guernsey Surf School offers lessons and board hire for those seeking thrills.

A busy day of eating, walking and beach activities may call for a more laid back evening. Wander from Vazon to the neighbouring Cobo Bay and grab fish and chips from Cobo Chippy. This seaside classic is best enjoyed sat on the beach or the sea wall, whilst taking in one of the most beautiful sunsets you are likely to see.

There are a range of great eateries all over the island, and heading back into St Peter Port will spoil you for choice. Guernsey’s culinary scene is world-renowned, as is the quality of local ingredients available, so make the most of it with a dinner to remember.

Cap your night off with your favourite tipple at one of many fashionable cocktail bars dotted around the capital and take in the sight of the shimmering lights reflecting off the marina as you reflect upon a great day in Guernsey.
