Guernsey – An Island Of Seasons

20.11.19

The search for a better balance between work and life attracts many to Guernsey. The ideal combination of business expertise and a close connection with nature offers an enviable lifestyle in today’s busy world.

Spend a year and even longer on Guernsey and you’ll relish the convenience of island life and how activities are punctuated by the seasons. Summer beach living gives way to autumn’s festivals and, at a frighteningly fast pace, we find ourselves deep into the heart of winter and close to the start of a New Year.

However, the longer nights and cooler days bring with them many new adventurers. As the coastline is only ever moments away you’ll find that the beaches, cliffs and coves can provide plenty to keep you occupied. A winter walk along some of the island’s 28 miles of coastal paths, with spectacular views, makes a good starting point to help keep those New Year resolutions. Stroll atop the stunning cliff tops on the island’s south coast and encounter the half buried bunkers and concrete watch towers that inspire you to learn more about the island’s history. A gaze down the cliff edge will reveal the drama of waves crashing against the rocks below.

For a more leisurely appreciation of Poseidon’s power, a perfect Saturday brunch can be spent observing the waters of St Peter Port’s Havelet Bay. Time it with a high spring tide and a gusty wind and enjoy the sight of a harbour panorama being washed in the sea’s spray while you lazily sip your cappuccino from one of the seafront cafés or restaurants.

Away from the water, the island’s parks and country lanes are ideal for families to spend an afternoon kicking through leaves and hopping over streams. The largest, Saumarez Park, combines a pirate ship playground with beautiful gardens and a busy duck pond. Each of Guernsey’s ten parishes have their own quiet corners which their inhabitants will resolutely declare are the island’s best! Take time to form your own opinion and with an outdoor expedition squeezed in before a Sunday roast, it’ll provide positive entitlement for that extra Yorkshire pudding!

Island living is definitely a unique and special experience that brings with it year round opportunities to build easily a closer relationship with its wonderful and healthy environment; all in all it offers a better life for you.
