Guernsey is the largest island within the Bailiwick and the second largest Channel Island, after Jersey.
A quaint and scenic isle, Guernsey is the perfect place to relax and leave the troubles of the outside world behind. A thrill-seeker’s paradise, Guernsey’s rolling landscape, sandy bays and rugged cliffs make the island ideal for walking, cycling, surfing, and coasteering.
Guernsey has a rich history and culture and, as a result of its strategic location in the Channel, the Island has seen many times of conflict, changing hands from France to the United Kingdom during its history. Its invasion by the German Army in World War 2 made a permanent mark on the island and its people. This time is most obviously seen today in the forts, bunkers, and batteries built during the war.
Today, Guernsey is a self-governing British Crown Dependency which exists outside the EU and therefore has no VAT or sales tax.
