Welcome to the Official Sark Website
Sark is the crown jewel of the Channel Islands, nestled in between Guernsey and Jersey. Car-free with spectacular scenery, bays, coastal paths and cliff top views. Sark offers a truly unique holiday experience for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. Whether you walk, cycle or take a tour on a horse and carriage, you will be creating memories that will last a lifetime.
We have no street lights to pollute the skies and Sark became the World’s First Dark Sky Island in 2011. If you are staying overnight, you will be able to see the majesty of the stars, as long as the clouds allow. You could visit our observatory which is open nightly or upon request and learn more about the stars, constellations, galaxies, milky way and much more.
Just under one hour away from Guernsey and Jersey by ferry, we’re quick and easy to get to.
Sark Visitor Centre is situated at the end of The Avenue in the village centre. The staff will be able to help answer any queries you may have with their wealth of knowledge of Sark. There are various displays on the walls imparting lots of information about our island and leaflets for all sorts of things such as self-guided walks, best bays and beaches for swimming, historical notes, nature identification sheets for children and much more.

This year we celebrate 75 years of liberated freedom since the surrender of the German Third Reich and the removal of the occupying German forces from Europe and the Channel Islands in 1945. Towards the end of last year, Sark teamed up with our sister Channel Islands and applied to become members of Liberation Route Europe. We have recently heard that the Channel Islands have been accepted as new members….
There are splashes of brightly coloured flowers emerging all over La Seigneurie Gardens hinting that spring is well and truly on its way. In the next month or so the wild spring flowers will be pushing through. The best time to see them in their full multi-colour glory is mid-April. We will be holding our Wild Flower Fortnight between 20th April to 4th May, during this time you can join…
