Beaches in Guernsey
Look at the word "summer" and what is the first word that comes into your head? If it is "beach" then read on - it's all good news. Guernsey is officially acknowledged as a beach lover's paradise.
Being an island, Guernsey has the advantage of always offering a sheltered shore, whatever the wind direction. With over twenty bays, each with its own character, beach goers can always find a coastal stretch that is calm and still.
The tiny coves on the south coast reveal their sand at low tide and offer sub-tropical temperatures in the shelter of their cliffs. Over on the west coast the long, sandy beaches are broken by rock-runs down to the sea whilst windsurfers seek out the fresh breezes and sheltered waters of the north in their quest for speed. Finally, the shingle strands between St Peter Port and Fort Doyle offer the best views across the Little Russel, to Herm and Sark.
In short, Guernsey has a beach for every taste and wind direction. Big tides guarantee outstanding water quality, with the main locations swept daily for litter. Summer in Guernsey means sand, sea and waves. If you are in any doubt then ask a local - but you may have to go to the beach to find one. https://www.toursofguernsey.com/
