I found Shell Beach to be an attractive beach on Herm when I visited. It was medium sized and quite popular, with most visitors presumably arriving and leaving on the busy ferries from St Peter Port, which ran almost hourly until early evening. There were...More

Lovely little bay, which is well worth the walk to explore Herm and find. Great selection of drink / nibbles to fuel you before your return trip back to the main town.

Absolutely beautiful beach that really is a hidden gem. We spent a few hours here and the scenery is glorious.

Well worth the ferry ride, I would recommend it to anyone. Given that the island of Herm has no cars, and the beach is on the other side of the island to the ‘port’, its well worth the walk.

A beautiful sandy beach that was not over crowded even on a warm sunny day. There is a cheap and cheerful beach café with great views across the bay. The service was friendly. They sold beach toys as well as food. There were no toilets....More

Everything has been said, beautiful beaches, kiosk too if you reach the Shell beach and the next bay. Quite a walk if you want to walk around the Island. Plenty of boats and a must if you come to Guernsey.

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?
