Just a few hours off the coast of both England and France, the Channel Island of Guernsey offers a pleasant blend of English and French tradition. Popular sites on the island include the home of author Victor Hugo, Sausmarez Manor, Castle Coronet and Little Chapel.
The west coast of the island has broad, sandy beaches, but these can often get crowded during peak season. The south coast has more remote beaches at the base of the breathtaking South Cliffs. Exploring the island's extensive network of walking paths is a popular activity for tourists and locals alike.
The Channel Islands were the only British soil to be occupied by the Germans during World War II. Check out the German Occupation Museum and Underground hospital, as well as German fortresses still standing around the island's coast.
