A romantic getaway on The Islands of Guernsey

Planning a romantic getaway? Positioned between England and France, the Islands of Guernsey are a collection of island gems that make for a magically romantic holiday destination.

Where To Stay

The Bailiwick is home to a whole host of comfortable and luxurious hotels, where you will receive the warmest of welcomes and an exemplary level of hospitality. Opt to stay in Guernsey’s charming capital of St Peter Port, at a hotel just a stone’s throw from the beach, or a cosy rural retreat nestled in the island’s countryside. Alternatively, there’s nothing more romantic than sleeping under the stars, and Guernsey’s sister Isle of Sark is globally recognised as an incredible stargazing spot!

Where To Eat

Despite its small size, Guernsey is home to an outstanding selection of eateries that are perfect for a romantic dinner. Whether you decide to treat your loved one to fresh seafood, steak or Italian cuisine, you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of venues. If you don’t fancy a three-course meal, opt for fish and chips on the island’s west coast to be treated to a truly unforgettable sunset.

What To Do

The Bailiwick is an astoundingly beautiful place with some of the most stunning coastal views found anywhere in the British Isles, making it perfect for walking. Take a leisurely stroll through St Peter Port’s cobbled streets, along the dramatic south-coast cliff paths, or with the sand between your toes along one of the western beaches. If you're looking for a more relaxed romantic break, the neighbouring island of Herm is perfect for a peaceful getaway, offering spectacular scenery in all seasons in a quiet car-free paradise. Alternatively, Guernsey is home to a whole host of fantastic spa destinations that will leave you feeling totally rejuvenated!

Getting Here

With regular and short flights from a range of UK airports, as well as a selection of ferry services, getting to Guernsey is a stress-free experience. Within a few hours of leaving home, you could be relaxing on one of the island’s many sandy bays, exploring the leafy rural parishes, or relaxing with a drink in front of an open fire.
