The area and getting around
Guernsey is one of the Islands on the English Channel near Normandy. It has creamy white beaches and a mild climate that is friendly for most months. The island has a rich history and hosts relics from the Roman times through the tumultuous Middle Ages to recent World War battles. Visitors can walk on stunning cliffs with awesome views of the sea and the beaches while visiting famous sites. Little Chapel is the smallest chapel in the world with full rights to host religious ceremonies. It was designed by a French monk named Brother Deodat, who wanted to create a smaller version of the basilica in Lourdes. The chapel is an intricate collage of broken ceramics, seashells, and pebbles. In spite of its small size, it is popular with visitors.Popular Activities in Guernsey
