Beaches

You’ll find yourself spoilt for choice when you’re looking to spend some time relaxing on the beach with a variety of gorgeous sands and delightful coves that lead to the glistening turquoise blue waters. What’s more, even in the height of summer you’ll find an absence of crowds and ample secluded spots to sit and relax.

Braye, Alderney: Only a few minutes from the town of St Anne and the harbour you’ll find one of the island’s most popular beaches. Its beautiful white sands are perfect for making sandcastles.

Saye, Alderney: The beautiful curve of white sand, which is sheltered by rocky headlands either side, leads gently down to crystal clear blue waters perfect for swimming.

Corblets, Alderney: A great place to take a dip in the inviting waters or go and explore the rock pools that are unveiled at low tide.

Alderney Beaches

Longis, Alderney: Situated on the south east coast, Longis has a long wide sandy beach which is protected from winds by a German ‘anti-tank wall’.

Nearest hotels – Georgian House Inn.

Clonque, Alderney: Clonque Bay is made up of a stony upper beach with a large rocky area stretching seaward and some sandy areas at low tide.

Dixcart, Sark: Especially lovely at low tide when the sand is exposed and easily the most accessible.

Nearest hotels – La Sablonnerie; Stocks.

Derrible, Sark: Beautiful sandy beach at low tide and at hide tide you can swim off the rocks. Quite a long route down (and up!) but well worth the effort and great for snorkelling.

Nearest hotels – La Sablonnerie; Stocks.

Port du Moulin, Sark: Excellent for snorkelling.

Nearest hotels – La Sablonnerie; Stocks.

Creux Harbour, Sark: Very popular with local children and families, although not suitable for swimming at low tide. The only beach with a café (and toilets) nearby.

Nearest hotels – La Sablonnerie; Stocks.

Shell Beach, Herm: This sweep of golden sand stretches almost three quarters of a mile from a rocky point all the way to the most northerly tip of the island at Alderney Point and then curves around to dune-flanked, often deserted sandy bays. Shell Beach is aptly named, for if you look closely, you will see millions of tiny shells washed up by the Gulf Stream.

Nearest hotel – The White House.

Belvoir Bay, Herm: Another very popular beach, this small bay is a real sun trap even on a windy day. Families in particular fall in love with its soft sand and safe waters which are ideal for swimming and snorkelling.

Nearest hotel – The White House.

Fisherman’s Beach, Herm: With close proximity to The White House Hotel, Fisherman’s is ideal to visit with its soft sand, endless rock pools and views of Guernsey and the harbour.
