The Islands of Guernsey are a wonder under the winter sun. Don’t discount us from your future travel planning.
The Island is stunning in winter
As wonderful as a long island summer is, with the milder climate of the Channel Islands, we are in fact a perfect place to visit at any time of year. Our winters are shorter, but still take the time to celebrate the wonders of Mother Nature. With the lower sun and shorter days, the later sunrises and the earlier sunsets, you can really enjoy the changing light throughout the day during a winter break in Guernsey.
It is well documented that with the shorter, cooler days, it’s even more important to make sure that you get outside, clear your head and get some fresh air. It’s really the variety of landscape in Guernsey that makes it a great place to reset. From countryside walks passing traditional stone cottages with picture postcard smoking chimneys, to cliff top paths looking out across dramatic winter seascapes and long empty beaches.
You can feel alone with the beauty of nature around you on our islands.
There is nothing like shaking off the cobwebs with a brisk walk in the winter air with a stunning view out over the water and surrounding islands and the setting sun over the horizon, followed up with a warming beverage at one of our many hotels and eateries, while cosying up to a crackling open fire. Unforgettable. Don’t miss it.
Here are a few shots of Guernsey landscapes this winter, to enjoy from the comfort of your home.
