Day trip to Herm

I spent a 1/2 day here from Guernsey, and enjoyed myself. The beaches are better than Sark and Guernsey, and the Island is smaller. The best beach I found was Belvoir bay where I had a swim, although Shell bay is a very long and probably the better beach.

You can walk around the island in 2 hours, and it is great because there are not many people there...

Thanks for your little trip report!

I love Herm!! In fact, from this weekend on, I'm off work for 2 weeks, so I'm hoping for slightly better weather. If that happens, my tent goes into the trunk of my car and the wheels will point towards St Malo. I'll be on my way to Herm's campsite.

You should really spend some time on the island when all the daytrippers have left, if you ever have the chance!!

Yes Herm is a little gem, so uncommercialised, which is brilliant. Of course if its a rainy day, then all you can do is get wet walking, or sit in the pub...

I have also just been on a day trip to Herm and it was perfect! Love, love, loved it. I went over on the first boat and didn't go back to St Peter Port till the last boat of the day. I think I walked round the island twice by different routes. talked to some students doing an archeological dig. Had a picnic on Shell beach. Also collected some amazing shells. I am now going to look into staying there for my next holiday.

Ah, so you've discovered what makes Herm special! Good for you. I love camping on Herm, but you could also enter their photo competition and win yourself a free self-catering address for a week....
