Havelet Bay

Havelet Bay - Guernsey
© trgowanlock

Within easy walking distance of St Peter Port, Havelet Bay is a great spot to unwind with views of Cornet Rock and its castle.

If you fancy a swim you don’t have to worry about the sea conditions as there are not one but 3 tidal swimming pools, including the much photographed Horseshoe Pool.

Be aware that as the tide comes in the sea comes all the way up to the sea wall
