We walked out from our hotel in St Saviour to catch the tide and walk over to Lihou. The causeway is largely block built, but there was no information about it. The retreating waters left rock pools, with some patience we saw fish and crabs....More
I visited the island during a brief period when the causeway to it was uncovered by the sea. It was quite fun walking over and back, and safe despite being slightly slippery in places, and popular. The island was quiet and unspoilt, with the only...More
Lihou Island is absolutely beautiful. From the moment we started to cross the causeway it was a great adventure with many laughs along the way... our 11 & 7 year olds enjoyed it as much as us 40 something’s... rock-pooling, spotting the beautiful wildlife, finding...More

I love islands so a chance to visit one on foot is even better. The causeway is is only useable at low tide and only on foot no cars.between tides there is enough time to explore the whole island which is now a bird sanctuary.
Firstly make sure you get the times when the causeway will be accessible - from the tourist information in St Peters Port or usually displayed at the top of the causeway. Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet. It is like a mini adventure...More
