Welcome to the Sark Tourism Website
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.
Visitor Centre Opening Times
Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm
Saturday 9am to 2pm
It was a big day on Wednesday for the Sark Community Dairy Trust when the first 8 Guernsey cows arrived on the island. The cows, six heifers and two younger females, are from a herd on Guernsey whose owner is retiring. The cows were shipped in two trailers onboard the island’s cargo vessel, the Sark Viking, that were then craned ashore. New dairy farmer Jason Salisbury was waiting for them…
Sark’s cliff tops, roadsides and meadows are buzzing with butterflies, bees and other insects but, to give nature a helping hand, two fields have been set aside and planted with special seed mixtures to feed our wildlife. The meadow at the Coupée has a mixture of wildflowers aimed at attracting pollinators, and benches to attract people to come and watch them.
