Neighbouring Islands (and the French Coast)

 

Guernsey
Guernsey lies 28 miles to the north west of Jersey, and is easily accessible by air or sea. Like its sister island, Guernsey was occupied by the Germans in World War II and, as a result, is replete with towers and fortifications, as well as sumptuous sandy beaches. The charming town of St Peter Port boasts cobbled streets and tiny alleyways connecting the main street to the historic harbour.

Herm
The smallest of the Channel Islands, Herm is just a mile and a half long by half a mile wide and offers a safe and tranquil setting for families and walkers alike. Herm’s spectacular uncrowded beaches are perfect for snorkelling and include the famous Shell Beach, where the sand comprises millions of shells deposited by the Gulf Stream.

Alderney
Just eight miles from France, Alderney boasts the Channel Islands’ longest breakwater which was built in the 19th century to offer a safe haven for the British fleet. Life on Alderney is blissfully serene, and visitors can enjoy idyllic beaches and the charming little town of St Anne with its Georgian squares.

Sark
One of the smaller Channel Islands and the last feudal state in the western world, Sark is devoid of cars, with only bicycles and horse-drawn carriages providing transport. Its 40 miles of coastline are among the most picturesque anywhere in the world.

St Malo
Only 14 miles from mainland France, Jersey boasts many French influences. Visitors to The Atlantic are perfectly placed to visit St Malo, one of the main ports of Brittany. Surrounded by ramparts, historic St Malo dates back to the 12th century, with cobbled streets, traditional restaurants and chic bars.
