Jersey the largest of the Channel Islands, measuring only nine miles by five and is packed with a great variety of landscape in a small space. The north with it's towering granite cliffs, in the west St Ouen's bay with a wide expanse of sandy beach and one of the best surfing beaches in the world.
The south coast is characterised by picturesque coves and beaches. In the last few years Jersey has become more multi-cultural and is surprisingly rich in variety for a community of only forty five square miles.
More compact than it's bigger, brasher neighbour, its 27 square miles are nevertheless packed with the kind of charm, character and hospitality which makes the difference between any old holiday and the kind you remember forever.
Stroll through the cobbled streets of St Peter Port, linger over coffee and croissants at one of the many cafes and then indulge yourself in the landscape. Atlantic seascapes, Breton style buildings and elegant granite edifices combine to create an island which manages to be both practical and beautiful at the same time.
Sark is still governed by a heredity Seigneur (or Lord) whose feudal privileges include being the only person on the island permitted to keep doves! There are no motorcars or tarmac roads.
The only mode of transport is horse-drawn carriage, by bicycle or on foot. Big Sark and Little Sark are linked by a causeway (la Coupe). Attractions include lush gardens as well as a rugged coastline with spectacular 400 feet cliffs. The island is accessible by boat only which is just forty minutes away from Guernsey.
The island is only three miles from Guernsey and just a short boat ride away. Blessed with lovely sandy beaches and blue sea, it is described as the nearest thing to a fairyland.
Explore the island on foot taking the coastal paths past Neolithic graves and onto shell beach where you will find hundreds of different shells.
