This scenic, pebble beach is backed by low cliffs and dense woodland. Being on the craggy south-eastern side of the island it is very different in character from most of Guernsey’s better known beaches.
The waters here are crystal clear and very tempting for bathers.
Fermain Beach can be accessed either by boat or via a cliff-top path from St Peter Port, a trek which rewards the walker with some stunning coastal views.
The award-winning Fermain Beach Café at the top of the slipway was once a humble kiosk but is now a very popular seafood eatery. In peak season it is advisable to book a table well in advance.

So different at low and high tides. High tide - pebbles only and wide narrow beach. Low tide - huge expanse of soft sand to swim over - easier on the feet! Beautiful clear water, classy beach cafe and seating area. Toilets and beautiful scenery all around. Gorgeous.
