So, you’ve been on holiday to Sark but have you ever thought about staying longer, a lot longer? Don’t day dream about making Sark your home: come and do it!
This small car-free island, nestled between England and France, is a natural paradise. Measuring only 3.5miles long by 1.5 miles wide, Sark may be small but it is big on breath-taking scenery. With endless walking trails, it takes an age to explore them all. Hidden coves, open headlands, lush wooded valleys which wind down to pretty little bays and beautiful sandy beaches. With bicycles (standard and electric) as your main form of transport, you get pretty fit over time too.
It’s a great place in all seasons, so why not experience them all as a native? In Spring, the paths are lined with pastel coloured wild flowers and the temperatures start to rise, much more quickly than the UK. Summer is blissful with long, warm, sunny days where you can languish alongside the quiet clear waters in order to cool off. Autumn still holds the heat of summer into late October and the burnt oranges and reds against the steely blue sea is most striking. Winter is a time for getting to know your fellow islanders and to build strong community connections. You will never find yourself without a friend on Sark. Winter also brings the opportunity to enjoy the clear crisp nights where the stars guide your way back home from a night out with friends enjoying the local brews. The island lies atop a plateau and so the rain clouds tend to blow over quickly, anytime of year, and frost is a rarity.
As we have a year-round ferry service to Guernsey connections are no problem at all, particularly to the UK where there are numerous daily flights and a frequent ferry service to the South Coast.
