We know that all companies and markets have been affected by the current situation. Travel and supplies to and from the Islands are now also being effected.

The health and safety of all guest and staff is most paramount.

Walking Holidays on Guernsey

Guernsey makes a wonderful destination for a walking holiday, and the Bella Luce the perfect base. With around 39 miles of coastal path circling the island and scenery that ranges from the rugged cliffs on the south coast to the dune-backed beaches of the west coast, not to mention the beautiful countryside and winding lanes of the interior, there are routes to suit everybody and a great deal of variety on offer.

Spring and autumn see annual week-long walking festivals that offer over fifty guided walks (led by Bailiwick of Guernsey gold or silver accredited guides) of varying lengths and each based around a topic of interest. Many of these guided walks are also offered on a scheduled or “on-demand” basis throughout the rest of the year, so if you’d like to learn about Guernsey’s history from ancient folklore through Renoir’s paintings to the Nazi occupation of World War 2, walking with a local guide will add an extra dimension to a stroll through our rich landscape.


If you are tempted by the sense of achievement of having circumnavigated an island, then Guernsey’s coast path is a fantastic multi-day route with a variety of terrain and landscapes to enjoy. We can arrange drop-offs and pick-ups in the hotel car and provide a picnic lunch or suggest an appropriate sustenance stop en-route, leaving you to simply enjoy our island’s beautiful coastal scenery. Guernsey’s car-less sister islands of Sark and Herm are also wonderful day-trip destinations for walkers, whilst the small island of Lihou off Guernsey’s west coast (accessible at low tides across a causeway) can be included as part of a round-island route or visited on a west coast ramble.


Besides coastal walking, there are many routes that criss-cross Guernsey’s interior. The island’s Ruettes Tranquilles are bucolic lanes with a speed limit of 15mph where pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders have priority. There are also numerous nature reserves that can be visited as part of a longer walk, and in May and June the orchid fields at L’Eree in the southwest of ths island are also a worthwhile diversion.


Visit Guernsey offer a selection of 18 self-guided “Tasty Walks” via a free printed guide and map or a downloadable audio-trail and smartphone map app. There are a wide variety of walks within, and each is interspersed with suggestions for some of the island’s best restaurants, cafes, and beach kiosks.

How We Can Help

  • If you are planning a visit to the Bella Luce as part of a walking holiday to Guernsey then please let us know when you book and we will send you the Tasty Walks guide and a map of the island to help you plan your visit. You can also view some suggested routes, many of which start or finish at the Bella Luce, by clicking here.

  • We can arrange for you to be dropped off by the hotel car at the start of a walk and then collect you later on that day.

  • If you would like to take a packed lunch or picnic with you then please simply let us know by 8pm the evening before. Should you wish, a picnic hamper can be delivered to a pre-arranged lunch spot and then collected later, to save you having to carry it with you.

  • If you would like to join an organised walk with one of the Bailiwick of Guernsey accredited guides then just let us know and we will either book you on to a scheduled walk, or organise a bespoke tour for you or your group.
