Wild swimming on the Islands of Guernsey is incredibly popular all year round, with visitors and locals alike taking to our waters. With proven health benefits like boosted endorphins and lowered stress levels, as well as a multitude of scenic spots to choose from, what’s not to love?

To make finding your perfect swimming spot even easier, we have launched a new feature on the VisitGuernsey App, our Swimming Guides. Providing a complete overview of over 45 swimming spots, from beaches and bays to natural pools and unique locations, you can learn everything you need to know about swimming on our Islands. 

Our new swimming guides on the app allow you to search all of our Islands to find your perfect swimming spot. Taking into account weather, tides, difficulty of swim and more, you can make informed decisions about the beaches and bays you want to visit on your trip to the Islands of Guernsey.

How do the swimming guides work?

There are currently over 45 beaches, bays and unique swimming spots to explore on the VisitGuernsey App.

You can filter by swimming difficulty and ease of access, depending on your swimming ability and accessibility needs, to find a list of swimming spots that are right for you. You may even discover a new favourite spot that you’ve never seen before.

Tide and weather information is available on the app. Each destination has a swim difficulty rating, a suggested optimal tide and best wind direction for visiting, so you can time your swim at your chosen location perfectly.

You’ll also find a guide to swimming at each bay, access information and details about the surrounding location including any facilities and how to get there by car, public transport, bike and on foot. We have also included inside tips from wild swimmers in Guernsey, so you can experience our Islands like a local.
