Island Hopping – let us tailor make a holiday for you

Suggested itinerary to visit three islands

If you want to truly appreciate the beauty of the Channel Islands then don’t just stop at one, try a little island hopping. The Bailiwick of Guernsey is made up of a number of islands with Alderney, Herm and Sark being popular and easily accessible by ferry from Guernsey, either for a day visit or a longer stay. 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

St Peter Port, Guernsey

Guernsey is of course the largest island in the Bailiwick but it’s still 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.

Herm

Beach on 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

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 by 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 connections are included and booked in advance. Condorbreaks can put together a great itinerary by sea which includes visits to Guernsey, Herm and Sark. You can of course vary your itinerary and even extend your stay, as we can tailor make a package to suit your requirements – just ask if you want any variation on this itinerary.

We look forward to hearing from you.
