The west coast beach of Port Soif is cocooned by sand dunes making it safe, sheltered and easy to access.
In local folklore the site is linked with fairies, witches, and elves and as such the locals call it the Fairy Ring. However, in reality it was used as a dugout picnic bench of sorts by island officials when inspecting roads and coastal defences up until 1837. The Fairy Ring can be found at the south-western point of the island on Pleinmont headland.

Guernsey's Roman ship, Asterix, is Britain's largest Roman object and believed to be one of only two of its type surviving.
A Romano-Celtic trading vessel, Asterix caught fire and sank in St Peter Port harbour around AD 280. It was rediscovered on Christmas Day, 1982, by local diver Richard Keen, and raised between 1984 and 1986. The original ship was around 22-25 metres long, of which some 17 metres of its lower part remain. It is the only sea-going Roman ship to survive outside the Mediterranean, other than fragments.
From 1999 to 2014 it underwent preservation work at the Mary Rose Trust. Since its return to Guernsey, work is now underway to create a purpose built home for the Asterix. The main timbers are currently on display in the grounds of the Guernsey Pearl and can be seen through a viewing window. There is also a small display that explains more about the ship, how it was built and how it came to sink off Guernsey.
Petit Port is certainly not a beach for the lazy - the only land access is down over 270 steep steps. These lead to an idyllic, sandy, secluded bay with absolutely breathtaking scenery. You’ll soon realise that this beach is every bit worth the effort.
For refreshments, you will have to venture back up the steps and then a short stroll away you will find Hotel Jerbourg and Jerbourg Kiosk. The nearest public toilets are located across the road Doyle Column.
If you’re thinking about making a day out of Petit Port, you may get lucky and get the whole beach to yourself! Take a book, picnic and your swimming costume and you’ll be peacefully content.
