Discover a bountiful floral kingdom of fynbos with unique views of Cape Town
The Crown Club at The Old Government House Hotel is the most stylish and relaxing rendezvous in all of Guernsey - the perfect spot to enjoy the company of friends and colleagues over a few drinks and a light meal. Created from the original 18th century Old Crown Offices it provides an intimate and flexible collection of inviting spaces that are perfect for a wide range of occasions and functions, including a glass-walled wine and whisky-tasting room.
The plush and cosy bar has a very traditional and opulent feel, with red leather banquette seating and a wealth of antique brass fittings. It offers an outstanding selection of premium whiskies and British gins, Champagne, vodkas and cognacs as well as cocktails, beers and fine wines, including signature vintages from our sister wine estate Bouchard Finlayson.
The clear waters around Guernsey are great for diving and there are several excellent diving schools. The visibility is up to 10+ metres and the waters are slightly warmer than the UK by some 2-3 degrees. Literally hundreds of ships have been lost in these waters so there’s some excellent wreck diving, plus reefs, walls, steep pinnacles and open ground.
A variety of companies offer boat trips and rib rides around the coast and to the neighbouring islands. You can visit deserted beaches and coves, admire the soaring cliffs and spot seals in the water.
Not strictly a water sport, but you’ll be on the cliffs overhanging the water, so it almost counts! Guernsey has some great climbing. The West coast crags at Port Soif, Grandes Rocques and Pembroke offer many easy access short routes. The South coast offers dramatic scenery to complement some fantastic and thrilling climbing.
Coasteering is a unique adventure sport in which you can experience the exhilaration of sea level traversing, rock scrambling, jumping, and swimming in gullies and caves. It is a fun and exciting coastal exploration along the wild and beautiful Guernsey and Sark shorelines. There are several local companies that offer coasteering explorations with experienced instructors and all the necessary equipment.
