Guernsey is the second largest of the channel islands and is a very beautiful island. The south and parts of the west coast are rocky, mixed in with sandy bays whilst the north coast is genetler with large sandy beaches. The east coast is the most built up with St Samptson and the islands' pretty capital, St Peter Port.



Guernsey
Grandes Rocques to St Peter Port

This walk takes in the north east and east coast of the island, a coast line of beautiful beaches which is less rugged than most of the rest of the island. This is a walk to take all day over to enjoy the numerous beaches on the walk. The part of the walk from Sampson Harbour to St Peter Port is urban, but still has much of interest.
