Viewing the Gannet colony of Les Etacs off the coast of Alderney is not to be missed!

The rock of Les Etacs, situated only 100m from the coastline, is home mid-February until the end of September to nearly 6,000 pairs of Gannets. A walk to the Giffoine offers a fantastic sight of the landscape made alive by the movement and the sound of these majestic birds.

A telescope and a bench are on the site to enable visitors take their time and have a closer look at the colony.
