Guernsey Airport Destinations

Need to check exactly what routes fly out of Guernsey?

Grab all the info you need in this great guide, as well as some recommendations for fun and interesting activities in a few of the most popular GCI destinations.

Guernsey’s so beautiful, it’s a wonder anyone wants to leave for too long – and if you’re only passing through, you should definitely stay a little longer.

For starters, history buffs love walking in medieval footsteps at Castle Cornet, a spellbinding 13th-century fortress guarding St. Peter Port. You can wander through the labyrinthine passageways, scale the towers for panoramic views, and learn more about the island's military heritage at the Guernsey Museum - handily housed inside the castle.

To sample history that’s a little more recent, however, take a leisurely walk through Candie Gardens, a seriously chilled-out Victorian green space. There are immaculate lawns, gorgeous flowerbeds, and a lovely glasshouse which is one of Britain’s oldest. And the relaxation doesn’t stop there – you can also grab a cuppa at the café and enjoy the sea views.

If you’re really feeling fit meanwhile, treat yourself to a coastal adventure. Strap on your sturdy footwear and head along Jerbourg Peninsula to see amazing birds at Les Hanois nature reserve, explore the historic WWII bunkers, and marvel at the rugged beauty of the coastline.

And if you’re even more adventurous, you can head underground to the mystical La Fosse Cave. According to legend, it’s inhabited by fairies, but even if you don’t see any little people, the otherworldly rock formations are deeply inspirational.

Guernsey’s no slouch when it comes to cuisine either. There are plenty of fresh seafood emporiums to choose from, and you simply must try delectable Guernsey gache, as well as unbelievably creamy Alderney milk ice cream.

Speaking of food, you can also enjoy fresh local dishes at Saltwater, French classics in the bistro-style Le Nautique, and Mediterranean dishes at Village East.

There are also some great bars and pubs in Guernsey. And the pick of the bunch are the Rockmount Restaurant and Bar in St. Peter Port and The Crow's Nest, which has sublime views and a relaxed vibe.

After all these activities, you’ll need somewhere to stay overnight. Moores Hotel in St Peter Port is a swish spot with a spa, rooftop pool, and fine dining restaurant. St. Pierre Park Hotel has a golf course, spa, and stunning sea views.

If boutique hotels are more your scene, try the likes of the Duke of Richmond Hotel, Fermain House Hotel and The Farmouse Hotel and Restaurant.

And budget-friendly options include Le Petit Doublon: and The Atlantic Hotel.
