Walks for buggies and mobility scooters

Can anyone recommend any well paved walks for a family with a buggy and a mobility scooter please ?We're going to the island with my 8 month old and also my mother in law, who has reduced mobility, but I would still like to go on a walk or two so any recommendations would be great. Thanks

Hi Abby

you can access the majority of the east coast from the Aquarium and Bathing pools through to St Sampsons quite easily as it is paved throughout. The south coast is mostly cliff paths so much more difficult and much of the west coast is unpaved although there are patches paved.

Ive attached a link for your regarding general access disabledgo.com/organisations/guernsey/main

Please respond if you need any more information and I really hope you enjoy your stay.

I love an evening stroll on Jerbourg Road, all the way up to the end.

Along the beaches of the north and west coast should be doable as well ....

As for the cliff coast (other than Jerbourg Point) I think Icart Point is a lovely accessible spot as well, with great views.

The country lanes down there are cute too ... (but there will be some cars passing by)

Hi Abby,

You could also try heading down to Portelet, a beach on the south-west tip of the island, near the Imperial Hotel.

The coast road beyond Portelet is closed to traffic and continues for a few hundred metres, making a nice walk with plenty of fresh air and sea views.There's a small fort at the end of the road which some members of the family can explore, whereas you can also get teas and ice creams and the like at the kiosk by Portelet beach.
