“Perfect”
Review of Shell Beach

Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Herm
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 September 2010

Shell Beach is a long, thin stretch of white sand on the far side (away from Guernsey side) of the island. From the ferry arrival point it is signposted. The walk is flatter but longer if you approach it from the left (turn left from the harbour) as opposed to the right (via belvoir bay and the village).

I recommend visiting one of the Herm gift shops and purchasing a little book called "Shells of Herm" for £2.50. You can then spend all day identifying the beautiful and unusual shells on this beach (and all the beaches in Herm). This would be perfect for children and adults alike.

The sea is shallow, and on the day I visited in September 2010, calm, warmish (for the English Channel) and safe. No life guards

There is a kiosk with a limited selection of food. I brought a picnic and then got some tea from the kiosk.

The signs say 6 mins to the public toilets but allow a bit longer. It's a rough guide.

I had a wonderful day visiting Herm and would highly recommend the island and its beaches.
