The channel islands

Food, numerous museums, beaches, hiking trails, pubs: this island has everything you need for a magical break.

Guernsey is knows as the “Green Island”. There are many trails, lush green landscapes and wooded valleys, thanks to the micro-climate that reigns there.

You can also enjoy the magnificent beaches and dunes, coves, harbours, walks on the cliffs with breathtaking views.

An island with landscapes forged by the sea, a raw character reinforced by the ramparts, towers and other fortresses that you can visit and admire there.

Alderney is undoubtedly the most popular island for nature lovers. It is called the “Wild Island” because it is full of natural treasures.
