The best places to visit on your next Channel Islands cruise aboard a sailboat:
The Channel Islands are a collection of islands located in the English Channel. The five main islands, each with its own temperament, are Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm, but the archipelago includes more than 1,000 islets and reefs. Sailing in the Channel Islands is like a miniature England. British stores, British pubs, British phlegm, here we speak English and we drive on the left! They offer the change of scenery of an island land spoiled by nature, impregnated with British culture, and the feeling of walking in familiar territory, with streets with French names and a countryside that resembles the Norman landscape. Among other things, the Channel Islands are perfect for a weekend getaway from St. Malo or Granville.
Nicknamed the Flower Island, this small piece of land of 118 km2 guarantees its visitors a change of scenery not far from the French coast. The island offers an extraordinary variety of landscapes, beaches, coastal paths, small country roads and charming villages.To the north, high cliffs and caves that the sea has shaped over time, while to the south, villages with colorful houses stand amidst beautiful expanses.
Like Jersey it is a green island but not only. An island of character, Guernsey also invites you to discover its rich historical heritage of ramparts, towers and fortifications. Guernsey also gives pride of place to culture through numerous museums.
Sercq is an island out of time. Here no cars but bicycles and horse-drawn carriages will make you discover unforgettable landscapes on the small paths lined with low stone walls and wild flowers that cross the island. Small bays, cliffs and coves... The exceptional coastline of this archipelago is an invitation to discover a preserved nature.
