This panoramic tour of the Island of Guernsey takes in the beautiful coastline, including rock cliffs and wild sandy bays. We also visit the delightful Little Chapel, possibly the smallest church in the world.
Departing St Peter Port harbour, we travel inland along the winding country lanes through lovely woodland to the Little Chapel. Here we have a short photo stop to admire this fascinating building, built in 1914 to replicate the grotto at Lourdes, and beautifully decorated with seashells, pebbles and colourful pieces of broken china.
We continue on to the south coast of the island and the wild cliffs at Pleinmont Point, past the broad sandy bays of the West Coast of the island. Probably the best examples are Rocquaine Bay, with the Martello Tower of Fort Grey, and Vazon Bay.
We then continue the tour past the harbour at St Sampson and on to At L’Ancresse Bay. In the parish of Vale, which used to be a separate island, we enjoy views of some of the coastal fortifications built during the Second World War, when German forces occupied the Channel Islands.
From here we head back to the ship at St Peter Port.
