This wild and beautiful part of Guernsey's coastline is made up largely of common land and is a major recreational area with a golf course, edged with long sandy beaches.
The common is also rich in historical sites dating back up to 6,000 years. Within a very short distance of each other, you can find prehistoric structures, Napoleonic towers, Second World War fortifications and a modern-day Millennium stone, unveiled by the Her Majesty the Queen in 2001. At the beginning of the walk there are plenty of places to eat and drink, kiosks along the way and a café/bistro at the end. Of course, there's always a sheltered spot to be found on the beach to take a picnic and admire the view.
