Visiting Guernsey? Then a trip to Herm is an absolute 'must'. This is a traffic free (apart from the odd tractor or quad bike to haul provisions) environment, and as such is sublime. The only real sounds are those of nature. I cannot recall hearing...More

I guess a location can’t be an attraction; otherwise you could review Herm as an over-all attraction rather than review only its separate bits and pieces. But that really isn’t a problem because the island is so small (only 60 permanent residents and no cars...More

Bright sunny day in mid May but a little cool for the sea. My wife was here 60 years ago and was disappointed to find - no shells. The café did us a nice bite to eat and we continued our walk to Belvoir bay

This beach is really lovely and peaceful and the view is amazing. It isn't at all crowded and the sand is really nice and soft. No rubbish for miles!

Glorious sweep of sand. Feels remote. Lovely little kiosk/cafe too. Worth a visit, particularly when walking the coast path.

It was very quiet when we visited so it was just nice to sit and soak up the beautiful views and enjoy the peace. Have to say we did not find many shells but that didn't matter. Luckily the cafe was open so we enjoyed...More

You can get to Herm on the Trident Ferry from St Peter Port Marina. There are numerous return journeys, very reasonably priced. Once on Herm, ask for directions to She'll Beach.....

Have tried to amend but does not seem an option to do so. Does this have to be done by TA? How do you notify them of an error?
