Introducing Guernsey

At times being in Guernsey is like falling into a giant flowerbox - everything's in bloom. With a subtropical feel, the highly picturesque capital, St Peter Port, has narrow cobblestone streets winding up and down steep hills to the water's edge, where rafts of colourful yachts pack the harbours. A little further out, a seafront rash of development has left its mark, and many locals worry that the island's character is being eroded. But Guernsey's chief appeal - its knack of conjuring halcyon days from green lanes and coastal fringes, where hiking the cliffs reveals dramatic scenery and gentle crescents of beach - remains.
