WHAT TO DO IN SARK
On a clear night, you don't need to visit an observatory, or even use a telescope, to experience the stellar displays in Sark's famous Dark Skies.
Sark is a gift for anyone who likes walking. It's blessed with an abundance of rugged coastline and beautiful landscape that’s tailor-made for exploring by foot.
Beautiful views work in both directions, so where better to enjoy the sight of the jewel-like island of Sark than from a boat offshore?

Breathtaking. Magical. Untouched. Timewarp.
Just a few of the words often applied to Sark; a tiny (Just 3.25 miles long by 1.5 miles wide), colourful, enchanting little island nestling between England and France, yet which feels like neither. In fact, Sark – lying just 80 miles off the South Coast and the smallest of the four main Channel Islands at just a handful of square miles – feels like nowhere else you’ve ever been.
Thanks in part to its well-known absence of any cars, and with no airport and only the occasional tractor for supplies, visitors immediately sense how different life is on this haven from anywhere else.
From the moment you are welcomed after arriving by boat, time seems to slow down as you enter a realm of stunning landscapes, wild flora, picturesque hedgerows, lovely beaches and tranquil surroundings.
Quiet lanes end in spectacular coastline, with undulating coastline, rocky outcrops and ancient granite houses scattered around to catch the eye amid your breathtaking surroundings.
