1) Le Pied du Mur (Marble Bay)

A small, secluded rocky cove situated near the south west point of the island, with stunning views towards Herm and Sark.

2) Doyle Column

Originally built in 1820 to honour General Sir John Doyle, Lieutenant Governor from 1803 to 1815

3) St Martin's Point

St Martin's Point offers spectacular views and marks the south-east corner of the Island.

4) Jerbourg

Stunning views over the other islands and the French coast from Guernsey's south east tip.

5) La Moye Battery

Perched high on the cliffs, La Moye Battery overlooks the inaccessible Havre des Moies Bay and include a gun emplacements and earthworks,

6) The Peastacks

Six giant rocks at the tip of the headland are referred to locally as The Pea Stacks

This section of the walk leads you to the south-east corner of our island towards one of our most outstanding natural features, the Pea Stacks, a line of large rocks just off the coast. One of Guernsey's significant monuments, the Doyle Column, can be found en route standing in an area that offers spectacular views overlooking our neighbouring islands and the Little Russell.

This whole section of coastline is both a haven for seabirds and wildflowers and, as everywhere along Guernsey's cliffs, traces of ancient fortifications can also be found. Benches are scattered here and there along the pathway and afford a place to rest and take in the view. For those who wish to picnic this is a great place to do so or, at the end of this section, there are both restaurants and kiosks.
