The images criss-cross the island, from the mighty vista from Jerbourg Point (shown on 36 p stamp)  in the south across to unusually peaceful Vazon Bay ( shown on 43 p stamp) on the west and the idyllic calm of Bordeaux harbour (shown on 77p stamp)

One of the highlight of the summer is the Rocquaine Regatta, with all manner of fun on the beach and in the surrounding area.

The 77 p stamp shown Bordeaux Harbour is a fishing port and bay in the parish of Vale in the north east of Guernsey.

Used to be used as a fishing harbour but is now more commonly used just as a beach, one of the few beaches in Guernsey that allow you to walk your dogs on all year round.The annual Guernsey winkle-picking contest is held here each year on 23 October.
