Cycle/ walk to the "picnic spot" above Rocquaine, Guernsey

Rate this Adventure 1 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Olivia Bennett

The views are spectacular overlooking the south-west coast of Guernsey. Take a picnic and a rug so you can sit and enjoy some food whilst watching the sun go down.

Once parked at Guernsey Pearl (opposite Fort Grey) you can walk or cycle up to the spot. Turn right out of Guernsey Pearl carpark and then turn right and go up the Route du Coudre, it is quite a steep road but there is a pavement so it is easy to follow once you feel that you are at the top there is a sharp right and hand bend and there is a road to the left and a road to the right (which goes downhill). Go down the road to the left and there is a left hand corner, follow that round then turn right. There will be a split of roads, one going left and one going right. Go down to the left. When you see the view of the sea you know you are there. You can sit in the fields or on the road (it is a very small road that is not used often, just be prepared that if a car comes you will have to move!) then enjoy the view and relax!
