About the Channel Islands

Beach Landscape Cmyk

The Channel Islands are a beautiful archipelago, each with their own unique character.

Enjoy the hustle and bustle of our capitals, Jersey’s St Helier and Guernsey’s St Peter Port, or head to the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm, which ooze old world charm.

A walker’s paradise, the islands offer miles of stunning coastline routes to explore as well as rural hamlets. Feel the sand between your toes and the fresh sea breeze in your hair on our beautiful beaches, where our rock pools teem with marine life and our glorious golden sands are washed by the tides each day.

With exceptional eateries which serve up the freshest seafood, caught and served up within hours, and our world-class produce, including Jersey Royals and Guernsey tomatoes, the Islands are a real culinary treat for food lovers. One of the most important days in our calendar is Liberation Day, on 9 May, when the Channel Islands celebrate freedom from five long years of German Occupation - and marks the finale of our annual Channel Islands Heritage Festival. The Islands were built on their relationship with the sea and this year we’re celebrating our maritime heritage.

With our award-winning beaches and unique history, coastal castles and iconic produce, the Islands offer the ideal break, just a short 30-minute hop from the UK.

The Channel Islands are officially the sunniest place in the British Isles so what are you waiting for?
