Guernsey may be small, but there are plenty of secluded beaches and quiet coves to discover, as well as a range of tourist attractions. When you hire a car in Guernsey you can reach wherever you wish, and travel at your own pace. Nothing happens too quickly on this unspoilt island, and with speeds limited to 35mph you can sit back and take a leisurely drive on the inland lanes, or enjoy a trundle along the stunning coast.
Hauteville House is an essential pit-stop for anyone interested in history, the weird and the wonderful. Holding rooms bursting with unusual treasures, this was the Guernsey home of French writer, Victor Hugo, who chose every element of décor for his not-so-humble abode. Visitors could also drive to The Little Chapel. Uniquely decorated inside and out with bits of broken china, seashells and pebbles, this chapel is as remarkable as it is beautiful.
With your car rental you’re free to choose from any one of Guernsey’s 27 beautifully pristine beaches. Moulin Huet, on the south coast, was a favourite of French artist, Renoir, while the flat sand beaches of Pembroke Bay and Port Soif attract those looking to enjoy a dip in crystal clear waters. While Guernsey enjoys a milder climate and more sunshine than the UK mainland, it can sometimes get stormy, and the short drive to the Fort Grey Shipwreck Museum will remind you that these waters aren’t always so inviting.
