Situated alongside Guernsey’s most popular beach Vazon, Richmond is as equally inviting to those who are looking for a wind-down and an evening barbecue by the sea. Found on the west coast, summer evenings here provide the perfect viewing spot for sunsets, but also daytime dog walks or simply relaxing on the soft sand with an ice-cream from the nearby kiosk.

Marble Bay is one of the most treasured and secret bays of Guernsey. It’s important to visit at high tide to see it at its best, with almost tropical waters. Swimming here is an entertaining experience as the south coast boasts interesting rock formations and caves to explore. It’s the perfect spot for a picnic lunch, but loses the sun quite early in the evening. For more information on how to get there, visit our walking routes page.

This beautiful secluded bay lies at the bottom of a steep cliff with a trek of over 270 steps down onto the golden sands. However the effort is most definitely worth it for the hidden caves and idyllic scenery. In the summer months at high tide, this bay is considered one of the best swimming spots for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
