Guernsey holidays offer a taste of island life
Enjoy luxury holidays in Guernsey and discover an island where fine dining, impressive coastlines and beautiful sunsets are a way of life.
Guernsey enjoys up to 2,000 hours of sunny weather every year and with more than 25 beaches, it won’t be long before you find your favourite bay, whether you prefer the sandy beaches in the north of the island, or the spectacular cliffs and rocky landscapes of the beaches on the south coast. Throughout the year these beaches play a central role in Guernsey life, whether you are sunbathing during the summer months, enjoying water sports and sailing or enjoying the fresh sea air and dramatic coastline during the winter.
The pretty cobbled streets of the island’s capital St Peter Port offers plenty of shopping opportunities and with both small boutiques and larger stores available it’s easy to lose track of time. Don’t forget that thanks to Guernsey having lower excise duty rates than in Britain, you might also pick up a bargain to take home with you. Every Friday is a market day when the town’s market square is full of local suppliers and traders selling their local produce and goods. This picturesque harbour town is overlooked by the historic Castle Cornet, just one of the many historic buildings available to visit where you can learn about the island’s proud heritage.
Island hopping offers chance to explore
The Bailiwick of Guernsey actually includes several smaller islands, most of which can be easily visited which can be easily visited on a day trip. Each of these islands offers their own delights, from the attractive Shell Beach and peaceful walks on Herm Island to a horse-drawn carriage or cycle ride around the motor vehicle free island of Sark.
Food glorious food in Guernsey
Guernsey is proud of its delicious culinary offerings and not without good reason. There is plenty of excellent local produce available on the island, and of course, there is always freshly caught seafood on the menu, with lobster, crab, scallops, bass and turbot all readily available. The island is famous for its unbelievably creamy milk and butter and award-winning cheeses, produced by Guernsey cows who are reared on the island. Locals will tell you that there is nothing tastier than a slab of home Guernsey gâche (pronounced gosh), a traditional fruit loaf served with a thick layer of rich Guernsey butter.
