VisitGuernsey App update

We are continually looking at ways that we can improve our marketing materials and, following industry feedback, we have launched an update to the VisitGuernsey App.

02 August 2023

The updated app has a new look and feel, but more importantly includes a new sea-swimming layer, plus improvements to the existing walking layer.

New features within the walking layer of the app include waypoints for businesses along or near each route, and clearer instructions with photos at points of directional uncertainty. Including all businesses along each route means they are clearly visible on the map and also feature in the Advertisements tab. The new sea-swimming layer pulls in live weather and tide updates, making it easier for users to pick their next swimming location by using this live data. Other features include swim difficulty, ease of access ratings, and available facilities, for example toilets and cafés.

We’re currently coordinating PR for the update, to ensure it is picked up by both local and national media, and we’ll also erect pop-up banners advertising the app at the Harbour and Airport arrivals. Visitors coming off the cruise ships and connecting to the harbour wifi will also be served an advert to download it.  You can also download a poster here to display at your business.  

We'll be holding a drop-in session on Friday 18th August from 2pm - 4pm at the Guernsey Information Centre for anyone to attend who may have questions about the app.  

The update is now live and is now available to download from the Apple Store (for iPhone) and Google Play (for android).
