The reservoir is situated in the rural interior of Guernsey, making it a great place to get away from the stress of everyday life. Well worth a deviation for a pleasant walk.
This very pleasant walk takes you around Guernsey's St Saviour's Reservoir which supplies 25 percent of the Island's water. The route which covers a distance of two miles gives unique vistas of the sea and inland Guernsey at the same time. The walk was created by Guernsey Water in consultation with environmental groups and other users to enable the public to enjoy the lovely scenery and wildlife that surround the reservoir and was officially opened in 2002 by the then Governor of Guernsey, Sir John Foley. This walk is perfect for packing a picnic as there are many benches to stop off at around the walk that offer lovely views. Alternatively, the nearby West coast offers a range of bars, bistros, cafés, kiosks and restaurants.
