Herm - a tranquil paradise
A tranquil paradise
Just 20 minutes by boat from St Peter Port, Herm is a tranquil beach paradise just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide. As soon as you step off the boat onto the jumble of granite and wood that forms the harbour wall, the stresses of the modern world simply evaporate - there are no cars, no crowds and definitely no stress!
Spend the day relaxing on gorgeous Shell Beach or beautiful Belvoir Bay – perfect for snorkelling in the crystal clear waters, crabbing or just snoozing in a deckchair.
You can take a picnic but a refreshing pint at The Mermaid Tavern or a delicious seafood lunch at The White House Hotel is very tempting!
There’s a spectacular coast path circling the whole island – you can see the French coast, as well as Puffins, Terns and a host of migratory birds. Visit the tiny 11th century chapel with its beautiful stained glass windows, discover Neolithic tombs and oxen shoeing stocks that date back to the residency of Trappist monks in the 1800’s and squeeze yourself into one of the smallest prisons in the world.
