Walking on Guernsey

Walking on Guernsey

By Paddy Dillon



This guide describes 25 walks on the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. From easy 5km (3-mile) day walks to the 61km (38-mile), 3-day Guernsey Coastal Walk, it explores the islands' varied landscapes and historic sites on mostly firm and well-surfaced paths and tracks, and quiet roads. Never straying far from the attractions and cafes that dot the islands, more rugged paths are occasionally used to access cliffs and headlands, although optional alternative routes and short cuts are included where relevant. Famous for its sunshine, history and wonderful coastline, Guernsey is a popular destination for travellers, boasting superb year-round walking no further than 2 miles from the sea. This guidebook presents a range of mostly circular routes exploring the Guernsey coast and interior, and the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm. Neighbouring walks can easily be combined into longer routes for walkers with more time or fitness. Routes feature 1:15,000 States of Guernsey maps, while flora and fauna and the fascinating history of the islands are also covered. Details are included of public transport, where to stay and how to travel between the islands, as well as connecting with the 182km (113-mile) Channel Island Way.
