Guernsey – the best times to visit, you choose!

9th January 2019

Guernsey is always beautiful all year round, but when suits you best?

Spring is an exciting month, people are always excited about the days getting lighter and the summer is in the near distance. Guernsey is just beautiful in the Spring and is the beginning of our outdoor activity on the island from kayaking to coasteering.

Last year we were blessed with a long sunny summer which made the island flourish and smile. During the summer months the weather is not only sunny but also dry. Last summer, our beaches were flooded with people all day long and the office workers shut down their computers at 5pm to ensure that they got that last bit of sunshine on the beach with a beer in hand, waiting for the sunset.

April, May and June seems to be our driest months but this year we even saw beautiful sunshine into July and August. We love the autumnal days in Guernsey when the air is a little crisper but the sun is still trying to glow. The sea temperature is still warm so a dip in the sea is always tempting.

Guernsey always looks stunning when the leaves start to fall and crunch beneath our feet whilst walking the cliff paths and swinging from the rope swings around the island. (Let’s face it, we are all still young at heart).

Winter is not normally the favourite season for most, but Guernsey is still beautiful and has the most wonderful eateries to indulge at with delicious hearty food and warm spiced ciders or a gooey hot chocolate. All you need to do is wrap-up in a traditional Guernsey jumper and this will keep you happy for the days that you are here. You can purchase these famous jumpers from Le Tricoteur

If you like the winter months and cosying up by a log-fire reading your favourite book, or sitting on a terrace outside in the summer months drinking a glass of cold white wine then we can cover it all. The Fermain Valley Hotel can cater for all months of the year and is simply an all-season hotel to relax, unwind and enjoy whatever season is your favourite.
