Travel Update – 12.03.2021
The Civil Contingencies Authority for the States of Guernsey have released their blueprint for the Bailiwick. This is an outline plan and subject to change, depending on contemporaneous circumstances with the virus. More information can be obtained from their website https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/bailiwickblueprint. As it currently stands, from the 22 March 2021 Sark will open its borders to Guernsey, Alderney and Herm. Non-essential travel from outside the Bailiwick will be permitted subject to restrictions and self-isolation periods and conditions. It is hoped that from July, the borders into Guernsey will be open but subject to a number of conditions. Facemasks, personal space and hand hygiene continue to be greatly encouraged.
Welcome to the Sark Tourism 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.
