Why travel thousands of miles for a beach like this when this one is just under 200 miles from London!! Never overcrowded and the colours are amazing.

Shell beach really is a jewel within a jewel. Anyone who ignores Herm in the winter needs their heads seen to - a great place to quickly shed the stress and strains of our dual time

I don't think you can beat the sweeping coastline and seascape of Shell Beach. As a local this is one of my favourite places in the Channel Islands. A beach kiosk sits tucked away for snacks and ice creams in the summer months. Clean, unspoilt,...More

The trip from Guernsey (about 20 mins) is good in its own right but the walk around the coast (about 2 hours) is fabulous topped off by the view of Shell Beach. We were so lucky to go during that sunny and relatively warm first...More

Shell Beach - in fact the whole of Herm Island is a wonderful place to visit for the day or for a few quiet days. In the summer it is bustling with day trippers and visitors and in spring, autumn and winter which are the...More

We visited the stunning island of Herm on 2nd October. I was hoping to be able to have a dip. Shell Beach was perfect. The water was crystal clear and there are plenty of little rock islands you can swim out too. We spotted lots...More
