Guernsey Encounters

Encounter somewhere new

Situated just off the Normandy coastline of France, in the English Channel, the Bailiwick of Guernsey is perfectly positioned to offer a holiday that is close to home, but feels like a world away.

With five unique Islands, all with different characters, Guernsey and the sister islands could offer the great encounter you're looking for this year, whether it's meeting our friendly locals, exploring our history and heritage, island hopping, trying something new or simply reinvigorating in these most glorious isles.  

With regular flights and sailings, the Islands are ready and waiting to be explored.  So what are you waiting for?
