One of my favourite beaches, so big it’s always peaceful. The sea is a lovely colour, not as good for swimming as Belvoir beach. But totally stunning.

Lots of space with a beach cafe, good service along with a nice walk to get to the beach. Worth a visit.

Beautiful sandy beach with long walks at low tide. The sea goes a long way away and there are always interesting things to see, such as lovely little shells and moon like landscape with all the rocks. Well worth visiting. One of the best beaches...More

Herm is a beautiful tranquil island a 20minute boat ride from Guernsey on the Trident catamaran. You can walk around the island or just relax on the harbour beach.

Large expanse of wonderful sand that even in the height of the season (August and the heatwave) there is plenty of room to find a quite spot away from everyone ...nice kiosk ...friendly staff ...and food at very reasonable prices

Shell beach is the most beautiful part of the island, it’s tranquil with a beautiful ocean, if you have a young family head here.

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?
