Welcome to Guernsey, the sunshine isle just off the coast of Normandy. Reached in just 29 super short minutes when you fly from Southampton Airport, Guernsey is perfect for short breaks, luxurious weekends and long summer holidays.
The Channel Islands enjoy more sunshine hours each year than the rest of the UK. This milder climate means that those beautiful, white sand beaches and stunning scenery are accessible even in the heart of an icy British winter.
There’s very much an outdoor lifestyle on the island, so take time to relax into island life, watch the sun go down over a plate of fresh caught seafood, try a new sport at Vazon Bay, take to the water and go seal-spotting or wander Guernsey's capital, St Peter Port. One of Britain's prettiest harbour towns, its cobbled streets house an eclectic mix of boutique, antique and craft shops.
The Channel Islands have their own stamps and currency - although British pounds are accepted - just as well when excise rates are lower than back home.
Breeze through the terminal at Southampton Airport and fly to Guernsey with Blue Islands or Aurigny in less than half an hour.
There are plenty of ways to get around the island. Hire a car, catch a bus, pick up something on two wheels or grab a taxi. Taxis are located just outside Arrivals or you can book your taxi in advance.
