Best beaches on Herm

Herm has some fine beaches and one of the best ones to swim from is Shell Bay. The sands of this wonderful beach are framed by marram-fringed dunes and shallow turquoise waters making them feel like a tropical paradise. With reefs close to the shore ate also excellent for snorkelling . The small café on the beach is also well stocked for a family day out. Shell Beach is also the jumping off point for the Puffin Patrol kayaking trip to see the most southerly puffin colony in Britain.
