L'Eree Ramsar Walk

Map of the Ramsar walk at L'EreeDescription -This is a circular walk of 4.3 km around the land portion of Guernsey’s first Ramsar site (Ramsar is an international convention which seeks to protect important wetland habitats. Guernsey designated this area, together with Lihou Island and the adjoining shore and sea to 6m below low water, as a Ramsar site in 2006). The walk could be done in an hour but there is an amazing amount of interest to see on the route: archaeology, geology, natural history, fortifications and other historical sites, landscapes, cottages and their gardens as well as beautiful spots for a picnic, bathing beaches, restaurants and tea rooms. It could take all day.

Wheelchair users can follow the route omitting the sections off the public roads around L’Erée Point and Le Catioroc.
