Our Story

Could we swim at all of Guernsey’s beaches in one day?

That’s the question that started this whole thing.

Growing up in the island we’d played bat and ball on every scrap of sand, sprung from every rock jump and bathed in every shallow.
But we’d never done it all in one day.
It took more than 12 hours, several pairs of board shorts and a few car bootfuls of wet towels, but we did it.

Afterwards one of us (it’s hotly disputed which one) suggested we write it all down. What sets each beach apart? Which beaches are best at low tide, and which ones at high? What’s so great about the south coast?

So we did. The result is the Guernsey Beach Guide.
