“Just beautiful”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

We visited in March (off season) and had the island pretty much to ourselves, was bliss, miles upon miles of perfection (at least it felt that way).

Dear Kelly F,

Its a wonderful feeling having the Island to yourself in the quieter months, that's the way most islanders feel too. Summer is wonderful also, as there is always a quiet secluded corner to relax in.

We look forward to welcoming you ashore soon.

Best wishes

“One of my favourites”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

One of my favourites, specially at low tide - stunning. Great views over to sark, on a clear day can see france too! Great walk around to north beach too - you may see the seal too!

“Stunning”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Herm is a most beautiful island, and Shell Beach is surely its highlight. On a sunny day, it is hard to beat this fabulous location.

“This is a little piece of heaven...on earth”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Herm is a fantastic place to visit. We have been visiting for nearly 40 years. When our now adult children were littlies. The shell beach has not changed greatly over time. Yes there is now a substancial refreshment kiosk where a garden shed used to be (30 years ago) You can walk round the entire island in an hour or so. Shell beach in Summer, or indeed on any fine day is a fantastic place for a picnic
