Channel Island Hopping

Belvoir BeachTo truly appreciate the beauty of the Channel Islands then don’t just stop at visiting one island, why not do a little island hopping? Whilst Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and inter-island flights are regular to Guernsey, the best way to explore the three main islands which make up The Bailiwick of Guernsey – Alderney, Herm and Sark – is to be based in Guernsey and take the ferry over to the smaller islands.  You can always take a day trip flight to Jersey or perhaps consider a two-centre holiday combining Jersey and Guernsey.  On Guernsey’s smaller islands you will find the pace of life leisurely and relaxed. Visitors often remark that it’s like stepping back in time.

Guernsey

Guernsey is only nine miles by three. St Peter Port is the island’s capital, a lovely mix of Georgian and Regency styles, with terraces and tiered gardens linked by steps and hidden alleyways. Shopping in St Peter Port includes low-duty buys such as jewellery, electronics, perfume, wines and spirits, while the Old Quarter is home to attractive individual boutiques and bustling bistros.

Alderney

Alderney, the third largest of the Channel Islands.  Imagine a little island that is just one and a half miles wide and three and a half miles long with just over two thousand friendly and welcoming inhabitants. Like Guernsey and Jersey, Alderney enjoys a mild climate and it even has its own government.  It sits in the Channel just 8 miles from France, 23 miles from Guernsey and 30 miles from Jersey.  Alderney has managed to avoid mainstream tourism. It is remote, yet well-connected with direct air links from Southampton and regular ferry services to Guernsey.  Visit Alderney and you will discover an oasis with an ancient and varied history, an abundance of flora and fauna, beautiful beaches, an enviable lifestyle with that unique, contagious phenomenon known as ‘the Alderney Feeling.’

Herm

Herm is just one and a half miles long by half a mile wide. It is situated three miles from Guernsey which takes about 20 minutes by ferry. Enjoy unspoilt beaches, glorious open countryside and wonderful views across to Sark and the French coast. Herm has only one pub, one church, one farm, a couple of shops and one hotel – the excellent White House Hotel.

Sark

Blessed with forty miles of some of the most picturesque coastlines in the world, Sark is made up of two islands joined by Le Coupee, Great Sark and Little Sark. Peacefully bereft of traffic, save a few tractors, here you will find narrow lanes and high cliff paths which give way to stunning views. With no cars on the island the only means of transport is bike or horse and carriage. Sark is accessible from Guernsey by a one hour ferry ride.

Island Hopping

Whilst it’s possible to visit these islands independently, for ease of travel and sheer convenience it’s worth considering a package holiday where all accommodation and inter-island ferry or flight connections are included and booked in advance. We can put together a tailor-made itinerary which includes visits to any or all of the Channel Islands. You can chose the itinerary you wish and we will put together the package to suit your requirements.  Call JerseyAndGuernsey.com on 0845 230 3240.
