Although the walk around Lihou Island is very short it is interesting, and it is popular with locals and visitors alike. The island has been under the management of the States of Guernsey since 1995 when it was purchased from the British Crown.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. This applies in England. Wales & Scotland have different and stricter rules which do not allow walking away from home.
