The Channel Islands
Most of the islands are autonomous property of the British Crown, but do not belong to the United Kingdom or British Overseas Territories. Nor are they part of the European Union. The Bailiwick of Guernsey consists of the islands Guernsey, Alderney, Herm, Sark and a number of smaller islands. The Channel Island of Jersey is part of the Jersey Bailiwick. Located some 20 kilometres off the coast of Normandy, here you will find English tradition uniquely combined with a touch of French charm.
The Channel Islands are a true paradise for anyone who loves the outdoors. The huge difference between low and high tide means that the islands completely change shape twice a day. Spring begins early and summers are balmy thanks to a warm Gulf Stream. Hikers - both experienced and inexperienced - love the kilometres of coastline routes that offer the most beautiful views. The unspoilt nature, green landscapes - interspersed with (French) vineyards, beautiful flower fields and magnificent cliffs, make the Channel Islands a stunning holiday destination. And so close to home.
When departing from our airport to the Channel Islands, you land on Guernsey. Guernsey is the second largest Channel Island. Jersey is the largest. Despite its size of only 78 km2 - the town of Groningen is 83.72 km - Guernsey is very diverse. Wide (and clean) sandy beaches on one side, rocky cliffs and sensational bays on the other side of the island. Walking on Guernsey is an unforgettable experience with its impressive nature and idyllic views. Furthermore, Little Chapel is one of the most visited attractions on Guernsey. As the name suggests, it is a small church. The special thing about it is that it is built with shells, stones and shards.
Saint Peter Port
Guernsey airport is located about three kilometres from the capital Saint Peter Port. This is the capital of the island with its less than 20,000 inhabitants. A picturesque town with winding streets (almost too narrow for cars), colourful markets and authentic shops. Absolutely worth a visit. So, what are you waiting for? Book your holiday now on www.sunair.nl or with your travel consultant.
Channel Islands: island hopping
During your holiday on Guernsey, you can easily island hop between other Channel Islands. Which we highly recommend, by the way. They all have their own characteristic and controversial elements that are worth discovering. Jersey, for example, is much more global than the atmospheric Guernsey. Herm, on the other hand, is an oasis of peace, with only one hotel, one pub and two shops. On this smallest of the Channel Islands, you will not find public transport or bicycles. The hilly Sark is perhaps the most picturesque of all the Channel Islands and a paradise for the keen walker. All the Channel Islands are relatively small - you can really explore them - yet versatile. You can go island-hopping on your own, but at www.sunair.nl you can book combination trips. Then everything is arranged for you, from breakfast to overnight stay.
