Lying in the English Channel, 48 km off the Normandy coast, Guernsey is the largest of five islands in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
Guernsey is a green island with a varied coastline of rugged cliffs, small coves and sandy beaches.
Traditionally, sea-faring and trading have underpinned its economy, but today financial services are key. Beautiful St Peter Port welcomes visitors with a tempting array of restaurants and shops along its cobbled streets and waterfront.

"Gem of the sea" rich in nature and history
The turquoise waters and an abundance of nature reserves make Guernsey a great place to enjoy the outdoors, whether you are exploring the cliffs and beaches or out on the water itself. Guernsey also boasts a rich heritage and culture to discover - with an unique British/Norman culture and historical sites dating from Neolithic times to WWII - from ancient structures, castles and fortifications from the Occupation to art galleries, museums and guided tours. The Bailiwick is comprised of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm, and is one of three self-governing British Crown Dependencies
