GUERNSEY BREAKS

Guernsey is arguably one of the most popular of the Channel Islands. Situated just north of France, the little island was part of Normandy over a thousand years ago but eventually sided with England in 1204. A visit nowadays will find you stepping on essentially British shores, despite the fact that Weymouth is 90 miles north at the nearest English port.

Many British tourists flock to the small island as a getaway from the stresses and strains of chaotic urbanised life in the United Kingdom. With a coastline of just 100 miles and some of the most majestic cliffs you’re ever likely to see, it doesn’t take a great deal of guesswork to establish why.

Guernsey is a quiet island which only truly comes to life at night. It houses a typically English blend of entertainment with flattering beaches and quiet walking routes for the daytime, and a vibrant atmosphere for the evening.

The history of the island is extremely compelling and remembered most fondly for the link that it represents between English and French cultures. You can still find the odd smattering of French speaking citizens on the island, but the population is predominantly British – or at least classified as such.

If you plan on visiting Guernsey, make sure you stop by at the legendary Castle Cornet. Originally built to fend off a French invasion and designed to be extremely resilient against attacks, the castle has developed over time and can now be found playing host to some of the very best museums you’re likely to find anywhere on the Channel Islands.

The island is traditionally acknowledged for its relationship with the elements. Many of Guernsey’s finest attractions rest on the ocean front and the beaches provide a wonderful break from city life. You may also find hidden rock pools on your travels and in true British fashion, it just wouldn’t be a holiday resort without plenty of cliff trails.

In further recognition of its British descent, a walk through the town will show up several traditional English pubs and you can guarantee a lively atmosphere as the long summer days make way for eventful nightly entertainment.

For nature fanatics, the reclusive island is ideal and you can always count on a few sightings of rare migrating birds, especially if you visit during the right season. The island offers several nature reserves and there’s a real sense of harmony in the quiet peacefulness that follows you around.

It’s worth noting that Guernsey offers plenty of activities for those who can’t stand the thought of spending a quiet week in the wilderness. With a rich catalogue of sporting events held across the coast, you can guarantee something to keep the kids busy at the height of summer season. The open ocean makes for the perfect environment to spend an afternoon fishing out on the waves.

It’s worth noting that the country accepts pounds sterling as a valid currency, but it also uses its own method. If you do plan on visiting, it’s a wise idea to take the sterling route which provides the better value – as it does in most conversions across the globe. That said, Guernsey is relatively cheap in comparison to some of the more regularly visited British holiday destinations.

One of the great incentives for businesses to migrate their companies to Guernsey over recent time has been the excellent tax terms. Given that the island governs over itself, there aren’t anywhere near as many downsides as you’d expect to find in setting up a business on English mainland shores.

The island is a wonderful setting of untouched natural beauty, guaranteed to provide the sort of peaceful vacation that small families and couples would enjoy. It also acts as a link to the other Channel Islands with excellent opportunities to tour the rest of the region. As far as quiet getaways go, Guernsey is one of the finest destinations around.
