Herm Island
Jun 14, 2008

Herm Island is 3 miles from the coast of Guernsey, 1 1/2 miles long, 1/2 mile wide & rises to 70m above sea level. We took the Trident Travel, Trident V ferry to & from Herm. A 20 minute trip with great photo ops of any ship at anchor. We walked up the steep hill to Manor Village from the Harbour & visited the C11 St Tuguals Church before walking down to Belvoir Bay on the east coast [lovely beach & café], along the coast to Shell Beach & then back along the easy route to the Harbour where one finds the Island's only Pub, Mermaid Tavern, gift shop, hotel & the World's smallest [& least used] prison. Lovely views & gorgeous beaches.
