This Beach on Herm is so peaceful and relaxing as well as being beautiful. There is a kiosk you can get a drink and basic snacks. The 2 young ladies manning the Kiosk when we went were very helpful.

It's true what the people of Guensey say (and by that I mean my best friend's in-laws) Herm really does have its own tropical micro-climate! It was hot, propely hot, in March. The sun best down on this beautiful beach all day and we wished...More
