GUERNSEY is the chief island in a Bailiwick that also includes Sark, Herm and Alderney.
The island has a story to tell around every corner, down each alley and tucked away in its forts and castles, ruins and ancient tombs.
From the long stretches of white sandy beaches to the rugged cliffs, Guernseys ever-changing environment is a haven for

picturesque seafront marina is considered
one of Europes prettiest harbour towns.
