Hit the beach
Guernsey has 27 fine beaches to suit all tastes, from rocky coves in the south to long sandy beaches on the west coast where you have the added pleasure of seeing the sun set into the Atlantic Ocean. Vazon Bay is home to an award-winning Blue Flag beach, which stretches for around 3 km 2 miles and features good facilities. Portelet Bay is a charming, sandy beach at the southern end of Rocquaine Bay.
Popular with all ages, Cobo Bay on the west coast of the island is a large sandy beach offering fine sand and scenery as well as excellent windsurfing conditions. L'Ancresse Bay is a wide and flat beach which is one of the biggest bays on the island - with deep sand, the water is perfect for windsurfing, surfing, sailing, sea kayaking and even fishing if you wish.
The famous Moulin Huet features a stunning beach which was a favourite of the artist Renoir and led him to paint a series of landscapes of Moulin Huet in the mid-1880s. On the south coast of Guernsey, Petit Bot is a glorious sandy bay that is surrounded by high cliffs that provide good shelter from winds. L'Eree is a large and popular family beach that is particularly clean – it was classed as a Marine Conservation Society recommended beach for water cleanliness in 2005.
