Cycle to Sark Henge
Sark is an island made for cyclists. With no cars at all, transport comes in the form of a horse and carriage, a tractor or a bicycle. It is a gem of an island, well worth exploring on a bike. Hire a bicycle from one of the hire shops upon arrival on the Island and then set off on an adventure.
There are a variety of routes to explore on Sark. The wide roads are the same for all forms of transport so do not hesitate to wave hello to a local on a bike on their way to the food store or a tractor going about their day. They’ll always be sure to smile and wave at you! You can cycle to most areas of the Island and then hop off to explore the coves and cliff paths. Keep a map with you and make sure you tick off the best spots: La Coupee, Sark Henge and the Buddhist Carving. Each and every viewpoint boasts a wonderful view out to sea and the other Islands, so whichever way you go, it will not disappoint!
