Happy New Year to all of you! We hope you’ve had a fantastic time and are already looking forward to your 2015 holiday.
Our latest series of posts has been dedicated to the British Channel Islands: Jersey, Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Alderney. If you’re not already familiar with these islands, you’re about to be!
If you’ve missed any of our guide, here is a whistle stop tour of five magnificent islands:
Jersey is one of the most popular Channel Islands and our post detailed some of the best places to visit when you stay here on holiday. Jersey has countryside, beaches, wildlife, gardens, museums … the list is endless, there’s just so much on offer! So we’ve given you 5 starting points for your break.
If you’re fond of wonderful hotel breaks, Guernsey has a lot on offer for you. This beautiful island has amazing hotel across the capital, St Peter Port and other beautiful areas like St Martin, Castel and Torteval. There’s luxury hotels, family hotels, hotels with spas and pools … there’s something to suit every type of holiday and budget. Guernsey is home to some fantastic beaches and a brighter, milder climate than the UK, a great place for a holiday in a hotel.
These three small islands are often overlooked by their bigger counterparts, Jersey and Guernsey. Although Herm, Sark and Alderney are easily accessible from Guernsey and Jersey for daytrips, these Islands are top holiday destinations in their own right. They’re beautiful, quiet and unpolluted. It’s not a tourist hotspot so your break will have none of the noise and crowds of other coastal breaks. In fact, they’re so beautiful and unspoilt, it’s probably best to keep them a secret when you visit!
The Channel Islands are a beautiful place to take a mini break or your main holiday and there’s no reason why you can’t visit more than one at a time! Travelling by boat, hopping from one island to the other is just a perk of coming to these gorgeous parts of the British Isles.
