Walk Herm's coast path

This laid back 6.4 kilometre walk around Herm starts as soon as you step foot on Herm Harbour. Heading south there are wonderful views of the islands of Jethou and Crevichon and the impressively crenelated Rosiére Steps. The gentle climb to the rocky southern plateau and Point Sauzebourge, is rewarded by great views of the stunning seascapes of Sark and Brecqhou. Heading north along the east coast passes dramatic cliffs before reaching Caquorobert for the best views of the stunning white Shell Beach and the hidden gem of Belvoir Bay. The island’s north is dominated by a flat, wildflower-filled common with a few Neolithic tombs to explore. An obelisk is positioned about half-way along the north coast which otherwise is covered by wind-blown sand that hides an old wave-cut platform. The route turns down the west coast, passing Rat’s Island which can be bagged at low tide via the stone causeway, then returns to the Harbour and the Mermaid Tavern, cafes and The White House.
