Herm Island is the smallest of the Channel Islands at just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide and lies only three miles from the coast of Guernsey.  With no cars and no crowds, Herm is the ideal cruising destination for anyone wanting to get away from it all.

The north end of the island is characterised by beautiful beaches with soft white sand and clear blue water while the south coast is home to high cliffs with great views.  The hub of island life is around Herm Harbour where you will find some lovely places to eat and drink.

Nearby harbours include St Peter Port and Beaucette to the west on the island of Guernsey and the island of Sark to the east.
