Information


Shell beach is Herm’s most popular beach by far. A 5-600 metre stretch of beautiful (but quite coarse in places) sand running north to south. Usable at all states of tide but arguably it its most magnificent on a spring low tide when the sea seems to go out for miles and anchored boats are grounded on the seabed. The northern tip of Shell Beach is Alderney Point which is a fantastic spot to get away from the crowds on a hot sunny day when the tide is up. Watch the sea surface ripple through with tidal stream and listen to the sound of the waves lapping the beach.

A beach side kiosk. Toilets are located half way to Belvoir – a 3 to 4 minute walk south.

In the summer this is a well-used anchorage spot so beware of boats if swimming. Not all skippers are experienced so be prepared for occasional nautical bad manners.
