1) Tour around the island by bus! From May 2013, Route 91 (The Guernsey Vaeux) is a circular route taking visitors around the island’s coast. There are four services daily, with extras at busy times, taking approximately one and a half hours. At Cobo walk along the beach and pop into Cobo tea rooms to sample their gorgeous cakes. A bit further along the coast stop off at the Guernsey Pearl, Copper Craft and the Fort Grey shipwreck museum.  At Pleinmont, walk up to the top of the cliffs past the Fairy Ring and marvel at the view from the top.

2) Visit the Little Chapel (possibly the worlds smallest chapel, covered entirely in broken brightly coloured china) and while you're there pop into the Guernsey Clockmakers.

3) Visit Castle Cornet, the ancient fortification set upon Cornet Rock, which stands guard on Guernsey’s main harbour, St Peter Port.  The castle is home to five museums, as well as beautiful gardens and landscaping. Be sure to witness the traditional firing of the Noon Day Gun during your visit. Fancy dress and spot it gudies available for children.

4) Take a day trip to Herm and one to Sark- you really can't leave Guernsey without doing these.  Boats leave from the Harbour in St Peter Port and have daily departures ( prices approx. £11.50 return to Herm and £27.80 to Sark, May 2013).  Make sure you have your camera as there are great opportunities to take pictures of Castle Cornet, the lighthouse and St Peter Port as the boats pull out of the harbour. You can also visit Alderney but you would need at least an overnight stay!

5) Oatlands Visitor Centre has a super craft shop, a cafe/brasserie, indoor soft play area for younger children, mini golf and outdoor trampolines.  You will also find a small gift shop, and a shop selling local chocolates and fudge.

6) Go on a rib (rigid inflatable boat) trip around the Guernsey coastline or Herm island, theres plenty of chances to see wildlife and you may even spot a puffin!  You can buy tickets from a kiosk near the bus terminus in St Peter Port.

7) While in Guernsey you must try Guernsey gache (pronounced "gosh", a sort of fruit bread / cake) buttered with Guernsey butter, fresh crab, Guernsey fudge, Guernsey tomatoes brought from a little road side stall ...the list is endless.

8) There are so many brilliant restaurants to visit that you must eat out and sample a different one every night- especially good ones are La Nautique, Petit Bistro, La Fregate, Da Nello's, Pier 17, L'Escalier and the Fermain Beach Cafe 

9) Pick up some tax free bargains in the main town of St Peter Port, especially jewellery and electronic items.

10) Before you head home make sure you buy some lovely, locally grown flowers to remind you of your visit. Visit Bellefleur, The Freesia centre or another local grow to get the best flowers.

 11) If visiting in April take a walk to the Bluebell woods behind Fort George.  Park near the aquarium and walk up the path to the left of the aquarium entrance.  It's a steapish climb past the Clarence Battery - follow the signs to St Martins. ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/guernsey/content... )

12) Take an Annette Henry guided walk (http://www.annettehenrytours.gg/)

13) In late July go to the Torteval Scarecrow Festival - simply brilliant & a nice way of seeing a lesser known part of Guernsey (http://www.torteval-scarecrows.org/).

19) Pack a picnic! Gather some local grown goodies from the hedge veg stalls, purchase some bread, cheeses, wine and cider then enjoy a picnic and watch the world go by. Ideal locations would be Candie Gardens, Grandes Rocques, Moulin Heut Bay, Castle Cornet and Bordeaux harbour.  

20) Visit Lihou Island - Just a 10 minute walk across the causeway at low tide and you will find a remote island getaway from the rest of the world, where you can imagine Enid Blyton's Famous Five scrambling around the paths.
