Island Hopping

Sark

Just a 50 minute ferry ride from Guernsey, Sark feels like an entire world away. Considered the crown jewel of the Channel Islands, prepare to step back in time with a visit to beautiful Sark. With cars prohibited, the island’s unspoilt landscape and charming unpaved roads are best explored on bike or horse-drawn carriage. It’s ideal for a day trip, however an overnight stay is when the world’s first designated Dark Sky Island shows her magic.

  • Explore on Two Wheels

    Cycling on Sark is not only a charming pastime, it is the preferred day-to-day mode of transport for many locals, and proves a very easy way to get around for day-trippers and those visiting the island for a couple of days. Rent a bike and get out in the lanes. With no cars on the island, you’ll just need to wave to the occasional tractor or horse-drawn carriage on your travels.

    Bike Hire
  • Your Carriage Awaits

    There is something quite magical about touring Sark in a horse-drawn carriage. Carriage drivers are licensed and often from local families who have acted as drivers and guides for generations. Sit high and enjoy the views and tranquillity of a tour around the island which feels like a step back in time.

  • The World’s First Dark Sky Island

    In 2011, Sark Island was designated an International Dark Sky Community, the first in Europe and the first island globally to be given such status. With no public lighting in the lanes and only farm vehicles on the road to actively preserve and protect from light pollution, locals use The Milky Way to navigate which can be seen clearly from the island.
