Cycling around the coastline of Guernsey is one of the best ways to see the island. An unofficial 49 kilometre road route around the whole island starts and finishes in St Peter Port. It heads north along a cycle lane most of the way to St Sampson beyond which travel is on Guernsey’s country lanes to reach the main coastal road at L’Islet.
The route along the north and west coast passes some of the best bays Guernsey has to offer at Port Grat, Cobo Bay, Port Soif, Rocquaine Bay and Vazon Bay before finally reaching Portlet Beach – there are numerous fortifications along the way if you want to break the tempo of this fast, flat stretch of road. Turning south with a short, steep climb over Pleinmont, the route along the south coast uses mostly quiet lanes with the occasional stretch on the main road. The highlight is an exciting descent in to Petit Bot Bay and the requisite steep ascent the other side before joining the main road back in to St Peter Port. Cycle around Guernsey route here
