Torteval, Guernsey Holidays
The Guernsey Parish of Torteval is the smallest of the ten Guernsey parishes. Torteval is the westernmost parish of Guernsey. Torteval is split in two by the parish of St. Pierre du Bois, the main part known as Torteval and the detached part as Pleinmont-Torteval.
The southern coast of Torteval is composed entirely of rugged cliffs. In the northwest of Torteval there is a small fishing harbour called Portelet and the southern end of Rocquaine Bay.
In the centre of the parish is a church built in 1818 with one of the oldest bells in the Channel Islands. The Church is built on the site of an earlier Church that had fallen into disrepair. The current Church has the tallest steeple in Guernsey, and is intended to be used as a sea-mark.
