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 ‘tents only’ campsite is a twenty minute uphill walk from the harbour, although your luggage will be transported for you by tractor. Just 80 pitches are arranged in three small meadows with a variety of trees to proved shelter. A wide open field with amazing views provides further camping pitches with plenty of space. There are no electricity hook-ups.
There are 29 ready erected tents to rent and about 20 seasonal units. Bring your own tent and equipment or hire both (but not bedding, crockery and lighting) from the site. Campsite wardens can be contacted at all times by phone. 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!
Small, wooden toilet block. Hot showers (£1) open from the outside. Laundry facility and small kitchen area. Freezer for ice-packs. Public phone. Mobile phone charging points and air bed inflating point. Groceries to order. No dogs or pets are allowed. Torches essential. Ready erected tents to rent.

Reached by boat from St Peter Port – report to Administration Office at the port on arrival. Do not take your car as it is very unlikely you will be able to park long term in St Peter Port.
