The smaller of the big two Islands Guernsey is a popular place for people to visit. It makes an ideal destination for a climbing holiday. The climbing is mainly to be found along the rocky south coast, but there are some other smaller areas, especially in the far north.

No matter where you base yourself, you will only be a short distance from the climbing since the Island isn't too big.

Take care as you drive around since the country lanes are extremely narrow, and what look like grassy banks lining the roads are in fact hard granite stone walls!

Getting There
