“Wow, what a beautiful island”
Review of Shell Beach

Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Herm

Reviewed November 26, 2012

we went for a day trip from Guernsey and found it a lovely place to spend the day. Weather was glorious and the walking nice and testing - not suitable for the infirm or pushchairs really. Had a nice lunch and the ferry trip is a lovely crossing

This beach is hidden in a top secret location on Herm Island so keep it quite !
There is a quaint tea cafe at the top of the beach where you can get a Herm Ice cream,bucket and spade or a pot of tea and sandwiches .Great for a swim and a super place to sunbath and watch all the boats come in.
Top tip a walk around the beach to the main harbour is stunning.This is a real beach !

Shell beach was beautiful and made a good start to our walk around the island. We were lucky to have good weather and empty beaches in October!

This long beach is made up of millions of finey crushed shells and it's possible to find some beautiful small shells & stones. The water is crystal clear and was surprisingly pleasant at the beginning of September.

We paddled across to Herm in sea kayaks from Guernsey, landing on Shell Beach. It must be one of the most beautiful coastal locations in the world. An ideal place to relax and unwind with a small cafe to meet the catering needs of the visitor. There are toilets a few minutes walk to the south on the way to Belvoir Bay. If time allows it is well worth walking north along the beach and looking towards the delightful archipelago known as The Humps. Herm is a beautiful island, well worth a visit, and Shell Beach is the icing on the cake.
