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.
