Petit Bot Beach in Guernsey

Petit Bot Bay on a crisp May day - visit by car or by walking from the bus route.  This is a south-facing sheltered bay, simply lovely for swimming, paddling, snorkelling or exploring rock pools.  This is also part of the south coast cliff walk route.  There is a café by the beach for refreshment.

Pembroke Bay, in the north of the island, is a vast expanse of sand when the tide is out, but ideal for swimming and for wind-surfing at most tide levels.  A designated area is set aside for the watersports so no need for the swimmers to worry.  Close by is the common, which contains the island's main golf course.  There is also a lovely Thai massage and beauty treatment salon which is literally a stone's throw from the beach.

Cobo  Bay Sunset in Guernsey

A west coast sunset taken from Cobo Beach - close to the best Fish and Chip shop on the island.  Eat your supper while sitting on the sea wall watching the sun go down - this is what the locals do.

Guernsey has more than its share of beautiful beaches where you can catch the sun whilst sheltering from the wind, if necessary.  And you can find a little piece of paradise in a secluded area with nothing to interrupt your solitude but the sound of the lapping waves or the hungry gulls.

Boat trips are a-plenty - for fishing, for sightseeing or just for access to the other islands.  In recent years, with the accent on preservation of the heritage, there are more bird and wildlife spotting trips available.

Recently walking tours have been organized with the accent on history - there is a gruesome tour of the Castle or the old town, littered with tales of ghosts and murder.
