With its unique blend of cliffs, countryside, beaches, bays and quiet, winding lanes - Guernsey is the perfect place to get active. Whether you are a keen walker, cyclist, sailor, fisher or swimmer, there is plenty to do :
There are a number of summer sailing courses offered by the Guernsey Sailing Trust, plus weekly Saturday morning ‘drop in’ sessions in July and August for children aged 5-12 years.
