Herm Circular Walk


The island of Herm is 1.5 miles long and just under 0.5 miles wide, and with a coastal path running around the island, Herm Circular Walk really is the best way to explore, and features some of Herm’s best beaches.

The harbour and entry port to the island is on the west coast, and heading north from here, follow a path alongside Fisherman’s Beach. The next beach is Bears Beach, which is rather secluded and offers uninterrupted views of Guernsey. On to Oyster Point on the north of the island, and around Alderney point, before turning east towards Shell Beach, one of the most popular beaches on the island.

Walking along the cliff path from here, take in the views over to Sark and Jethou, before arriving at the stunning cove of Belvoir Bay. The south coast of the island is home to high cliffs and winding paths—be sure to keep a look out for birds nesting in the cliffs. As you turn the corner, you will see Hotel Beach ahead, leading back to your starting point.

Paths are gravel and sand, but undulating and do include steps and uneven ground.

A great scenic walk with stunning views, beautiful beaches, wildlife, beautiful flowers and a few refreshment stops along the way.
