Holiday on the Channel Islands

Location and orientation

Holidays on the Norman Islands

The Channel Islands are a group of islands in the English Channel situated between France and England, not far from the French department of Manche. The archipelago consists of the islands of Guernsey and Jersey, the island of Alderney, strongly influenced by British influences, and the smaller island pearls of Herm and Sark, where dreamlike sandy beaches await you.

Travel options and local mobility

Guernsey, Jersey and Alderney are very easily reached by plane. There are ferries from Wymouth, Poole or Portsmouth in England to Cherbourg or Saint-Malo in France. By the way, it is good to know that left-hand traffic prevails on the Channel Islands. But an own car is not absolutely necessary, as the bus connections on the islands are very well developed and the bicycle is very suitable for exploring tours.

Top 3 travel tips

1. Strolling through the capital Alderneys

Take a stroll through St. Anne, where winding cobbled streets and buildings decorated with flowers create a charming overall picture. Here you will also find the Alderney Museum, which thematically deals with the history as well as the fauna and flora of the island. The St. Anne Church is also worth seeing.

2. The fortress on the island

Right next to Guernsey there is a small island with the imposing Cornet Rock castle. It can be reached via a pier that connects the castle island with the port in Saint Peter Port. The fortress occupies almost the entire island and houses the Maritime Museum, the 201 Squadron RAF Museum, the Royal Guernsey Militia and Light Infantry Museum as well as a restaurant and open-air theatre.

3. Beaches and cliffs in the Caribbean of Europe

On Herm the golden sandy beaches are often compared to those of the Caribbean. Enjoy your days by the sea, swimming and building sand castles, or take a walk along the breathtaking cliffs, where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the sea and the surrounding colorful landscape.

The Channel Islands are neither part of the United Kingdom nor part of France. The islands are a crown colony under the British Crown. Therefore, there are local currencies, such as the Guernsey pound or Jersey pound. But the British pound is also accepted everywhere.

Things to know

Floral peculiarity of the Channel Islands

On Guernsey there is a reddish flowering lily, which is also the landmark of the island. That's where this particular plant supposedly came from in the 17th century. At that time a Dutch ship coming from Japan lost boxes of onions in the sea, which were washed ashore. However, the bulbs were not vegetables, but this special flower from the Amaryllis family, of which there are 30 species today, 22 of which are found in southern Africa.
