The Channel Islands

Departing from Granville, take a day trip to Jersey, Guernsey or Sark.

Sailing to theChannel Islands is an excellent choice for cruising from Granville. Located some 30 miles from Granville, Jersey, Guernsey, Serq, Alderney and Herm make for original ports of call and a total immersion in English culture.

Jersey, the island of flowers, lined with high cliffs and indented with coves, is packed with lively little ports. Guernesey, Victor Hugo’s land of exile, offers breathtaking natural panoramas such as the famous “Cliff Path” with its many steps. Finally Sark, Aurigny and Herm, the wildest, are ideal for slow tourism.


The perfect island break

Jersey is an island shaped by the sea, where the tides, some of the most impressive in the world, straddle the coastline and feed the land.

An island of small size but great character, where country lanes open onto cliff tops and you’re never more than ten minutes from the sea. An island of rediscovery, offering so many opportunities for activity and exploration. An island where it’s good to catch your breath.

Alderney Channel Islands

Aurigny, the third largest of the Channel Islands – five kilometers long by three wide – presents itself, in fact, as a village with a very distinctive style.
