Alan Rogers Review
This tiny site, and indeed the island of Herm, will certainly appeal to those who are looking for complete tranquillity and calm. Reached by boat from Guernsey (20 minutes), this beautiful, 300-acre island allows no cars, only tractors, on its narrow roads and paths (no bicycles either). The campsite is a twenty-minute uphill walk from the harbour, although your luggage will be transported for you. There are several ready-erected tents to rent, they are fully equipped except for bedding and lighting which are not included. Unfortunately, there is no option to use your own equipment.
Walk down the hill to the harbour village, and there is a pub with good meals, a restaurant and two small shops. One is free to stroll around the many paths, through farmland, heath and around the coast, where there are stunning beaches. Visit Shell Beach to gather a wonderful variety of shells or walk down to Belvoir Bay and spend the day swimming and sunbathing. Herm is definitely not for those who like entertainment and plenty of facilities, but for total relaxation, with the absence of any bustle and noise, it takes some beating!
