The Channel Island of Guernsey

When it comes to Guernsey, some think of the beef of the same name, others of the selection of the best football players in the Channel Islands.


Guernsey is characterized by horticulture and is located in the English Channel, within sight of mainland France, in the Bay of Saint Malo, just like Jersey. Three islands form Guernsey, two smaller ones and the main island St. Peters Port. Not only does the soccer team play on the main island, they also come from Guernsey cattle. This breed of cattle is mostly traded from the island to France and is found on some pastures in the USA.

Sightseeing in Guernsey

One attraction of the main island is Castle Cornet, which stands on a rock in front of the port of St. Peter (Port Saint Peter). Once this fortress could only be reached by land at low tide, now there is a bridge.
