Island Hopping

Herm

Just a 20-minute boat ride from St Peter Port, Herm Island is a peaceful oasis. With long stretches of unspoilt beach, sandy cliff paths, local pods of dolphins and Europe’s most southerly puffin colony, this small island is an escape like no other. Whether you are looking for an overnight hotel stay or to set up camp for a week, Herm has options for every holiday.

  • Get Active on the Island

    Explore the turquoise sea around Herm by paddleboard or kayak - from an hour of private hire to puffin spotting tours and guided routes around the whole island, there is plenty to enjoy. On land, you can take part in archery and active quizzes that send you around the island searching for clues.

  • Enjoy a Beach Day

    Herm is framed by unspoilt beaches ideal for a day of relaxing. Overlooking the French coast, you will find the pure white Shell Beach, offering watersports hire and an excellent beach cafe. Further around the cliff path is Belvoir Bay, a secluded spot sheltered from the wind. With its own microclimate and beach cafe, it is a local favourite. And it could be yours too.
