Castel Parish Profile

The parish of Castel is the largest in Guernsey with a population of about 9,500, a land area of about 3.9 square miles (10.2 sq km.) and is on the north-west of the Island.

The lovely beaches of Cobo and Vazon are not only popular for sunbathing and swimming, but also for surfing and windsurfing. Cobo also has many small fishing boats anchored in the bay during the summer months giving this neighbourhood shopping centre a character and charm of it’s own.

Saumarez Park, located nearby and, incidentally, was last sold at auction (by Lovells) as 37 separate lots in 1938 (comprising Saumarez Park & residence, Mare de Carteret, Les Houmets Farm, Saumarez tower, 35 fields, nine cottages, Forest lodge & gardens; the whole nearly 120 acres!), it now hosts the annual North Show during which the Battle of Flowers takes place and the Viaier Marche, which proudly displays local skills and has many traditional Guernsey dishes such as bean jar and gache for sale.

Castel is home to the Island’s second golf course at Vazon Bay.

Primary School catchment for this parish is Castel Primary School and La Mare de Carteret.
