Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a must see place. The weather was great on the day we visited and it was like being in the Bahamas. Cafe and toilets on site. You have to walk there from the boat but it is worth it. Highlight of our week in Guernsey

On the far side of Herm… near tropical on a sunny day… blue clear waters, ideal for bathing and water sports.

Views are spectacular for the Channel Islands. Beaches are decent. Flies are prevalent but not massively annoying
What was more frustrating was that a cafe serving chips with everything, allowed spoilt customers to reserve two tables and turned up 50 mins late.... at lunchtime. Many including ourselves could not use a table, where food wasn't cheap (everything has to come in by boat)
After otherwise very pleasant holiday with decent people on Guernsey, it was sad to feel back and home and see such selfishness from other tourists.
Head down to the Belvoir beach for a better experience.

Superb beach and really something special. The beach was very clean and the cafe on the beech was very good, although the sheer amount of wasps were annoying. Will be coming back though!

Really fabulous beach with a good beach cafe serving lovely food. Clean white shell sand that seems to go on forever. Lovely, safe beach with warmer pools when the sea goes out. Not to be missed

Stopped for lunch here on my coastal walk around Herm. I had been expecting an abundance of shells and was a little underwhelmed. However, it was an amazing beach/bay had good food kiosk and good toilets.

Lovely views. I really enjoyed the ferry, late afternoon trip so it was pretty quiet. Forgot my jacket so it got a bit chilly.

Get the boat to Herm! What great walks and not too strenuous. Views are worth the visit alone. Nice church on top of the island . Lots of local history here and just take time to enjoy the traffic free quietness.

Amazing,clean,near deserted sands on a near deserted Island,backed by a small cafe and "loos",a piece of Heaven on Earth.
Gentle,lapping waters at the edge of a shelving beach,no litter,no seaweed,no stones,nearest you'll get to a deserted Caribbean Islands beach in this part of the World.......Spectacular!
