This section of Guernsey's coastline was once home to the island's shipbuilding industry and is now the hub for our power supplies and light industry.
The area known as The Bridge is now popular for shopping but, as its name alludes to, was once the main crossing point when Guernsey was effectively two islands. The harbour itself was once a thriving port in the late 1800s when as many as 30 ships and 300 sailors came into town. Nowadays, however, local boats bob in the calm waters of a marina built in 2005.
From here, the walk takes you along the seafront towards Guernsey's capital, St Peter Port. Cruise ships often anchor out in the bay and make a striking sight with the neighbouring islands of Herm and Sark and, on a clear day, France, in the background. This section of your walk, offers a good selection of refreshments from pretty French coffee shops to restaurants offering a range of International cuisine.
