Jethou

Jethou is a small island that is part of the Channel Islands, but not open to the public. Jethou is immediately south of Herm and has an area of approximately 18 hectares or 44 acres. It is said that in AD 709 a storm washed away the strip of land which connected the island with Herm.

In 1416, it became part of Henry V of England's estate and still remains a Crown lease and now owned by the States of Guernsey.

At the back of Jethou, puffins can be seen swimming off the rocks.
