Island History

Herm has enjoyed a colourful history and many vestiges of the past can still be seen. The island of today is quite different to bygone eras when the public had no access. Great efforts were made in many ways to harness the island's assets and allure before the advent of tourism.

The island has been home to neolithic man, monks, quarrymen, farmers, writers, artists and wealthy entrepreneurs. Details of their rich and colourful lifestyles are detailed in Hidden Treasures of Herm Island by Catherine Kalamis, available at the Herm Island Gift Shops.
