Famous for sunshine, history and a wonderful coastline, Guernsey is an intriguing destination for travellers. The Channel Islands are suitable as a year-round holiday destination and generally enjoys slightly milder weather than the south of England. Winters are mild, but there may be frosts and very occasionally snow.
The walks in this guidebook are mostly short and straightforward. The islands covered by the Bailiwick of Guernsey have a combined land area of 30 square miles and walkers are never more than 2 miles from the sea. There are no hills on Guernsey and walkers rarely find themselves much above 100m (330ft) above sea level.
The walks start with a town trail around St Peter Port. Walks 2 – 14 are mostly circular arranged round the coast of Guernsey. Walks 15 – 19 explore the inland parts of Guernsey, and walks 21 -25 explore the small Channel Isles of Alderney, Sark and Herm.
With its companion volume, Walking on Jersey, offers a comprehensive guide to the best holiday walking on the Channel Islands
- plenty of interesting historical sites and attractions to visit including castles, churches and museums
- a selection of short walks which can be linked to form longer routes, including the Guernsey Coastal Walk and part of the new Channel Islands Way
