Walks And Walking – Best Places To Go Walking In Guernsey. With over 28 miles of rural lanes, stunning cliff paths and sandy beaches Guernsey really is a walkers holiday paradise. With so many different areas to explore and places to ramble on this quirky little island, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start. This walking tour around the islands of Guernsey is the longer half of The Channel Island Way, an unofficial km / mile trail around the accessible Channel Islands in The English Channel. Originally part of the Duchy of Normandy, William the Conqueror bequeathed the islands to the English crown where they remained even after the mainland /5(4).

I have walked a fair bit of it in the past and didn't have a map or guide. It was self-evident where it went. The cliffs are along the southern coast of Guernsey and that is where the best walking is. Where the coast is flatter, it is often a road which runs alongside the sea .   In addition, there are guided walking tours based on works of Victor Hugo, such as Toilers of the Sea, which was inspired by Bordeaux Bay in the island’s north.
