We walked out from our hotel in St Saviour to catch the tide and walk over to Lihou. The causeway is largely block built, but there was no information about it. The retreating waters left rock pools, with some patience we saw fish and crabs....More

I visited the island during a brief period when the causeway to it was uncovered by the sea. It was quite fun walking over and back, and safe despite being slightly slippery in places, and popular. The island was quiet and unspoilt, with the only...More

Check with Guernsey web site if open as the tides and weather conditions mean that this island is sometimes inaccessible. The slipway at Lihou is covered in slimy seaweed and really slippy, be prepared to scramble the rock pools over the last 100 feet. The...More
