Belvoir Bay is a beautifully secluded beach on the East coast of Herm Island. Its location shelters the beach from the prevailing southerly and westerly winds, and it is a firm favourite for those visiting Herm. There is a beach cafe serving snacks and ice creams, and also selling toys, beach games and postcards from mid-April until mid-September.
It is a small and incredibly popular east-facing sandy beach of no more than 75 metres at its widest point in the indented coastline. The beach is steep so beware if you’re running into the sea!
Belvoir is one of a number of beautiful beaches on Herm, and due to the island’s small size, you can visit many in one day. Shell Beach is a popular sweep of golden sand that stretches for almost three quarters of a mile from a rocky point all the way to the most northerly tip of the island at Alderney Point. There are also a handful of beaches on the West Coast of Herm, such as Fisherman’s Beach and Oyster Beach.
